Our minister Louise is currently on sick leave but we are delighted to welcome
Rev Dr Anne Logan as our Interim Moderator and Locum

Dear Friends,

It is a privilege to journey alongside you all as your Interim Moderator and Locum for the next wee while and I look forward to getting to know you.

During this autumn, the Bible readings in Church have allowed us to follow some of the best known and best loved Old Testament stories.

  • we have looked at Joseph being reconciled to his brothers because God was able to bring good out of their evil plans; 
  • we’ve seen Jonah broken and bereft because he felt God’s forgiveness was unfair; 
  • we’ve heard the children of Israel feeling bereft and abandoned in the wilderness, wondering if God was still around. 
Throughout all the stories we see the constant thread of God’s love and we see that woven through the doubts, fears, anxieties and complaints which are part of human living. These stories, like all the Bible stories are the Testament to God’s love and the ways in which many generations of people experienced that love. Amidst our own doubts, fears, anxieties and complaints, God’s love is the constant thread holding us together.


Wishing you all God’s Blessings this Harvest season,

Anne (Rev Dr Anne T Logan)
