Bill Borthwick has given us notice that he intends to stand down as Congregational Treasurer at the end of March 2020. The work that Bill has done has demonstrated the value of having a designated treasurer and the Finance Committee would be eager to see him replaced.

If you possess the ability and experience to take on this role, you could offer immeasurable support to the Kirk Session and congregation by volunteering your services. Alternatively, if you know of someone who might be suitable, the Session would be delighted to approach him or her.

Bill has kindly offered every assistance to whoever is appointed in his place.

Please contact Ivor Waddell, Session Clerk, either to volunteer or to recommend someone else.  Email address and phone numbers are on the Contact Information page.

A New Minister is Appointed!

There was an atmosphere of eager anticipation as the congregation gathered for a special service at 10.00am on Sunday 19th January. The service was being conducted by Rev. James Gatherer from Colvend, Southwick & Kirkbean Parish, and the reason for his presence was that he had been chosen by your Nomination Committee to be presented as Sole Nominee for the vacant post of Minister of Kirkcudbright Parish Church. The service was opened with some well chosen songs from our Praise Band, following which Geoff Davidson, our organist, and our choir led the congregation in a number of Hymns.  Rev. Gatherer chose as his theme a message called “Treasures in Heaven”, based on readings from the Gospels of Mathew & Luke.

At the close of the service, the congregation voted 93 v 3 to call Rev. Gatherer to be Minister of Kirkcudbright Parish Church. Thereafter there was opportunity to gather in the Hall for tea & coffee, where there was further chance to share fellowship and informally chat to our newly appointed minister, who hopes to take up post in late March.
