Netherlorn Minister Ken Ross has been offered, and has accepted, a new post with the Church of Scotland, working on theological education and leadership development in Africa, starting in Spring 2019. Ken said, “This has not been an easy decision and I am grateful for much support and encouragement. It is exciting to have a fresh challenge ahead but after nine wonderful years we know we will greatly miss the Netherlorn parishes. I look forward to sharing more about these plans in 2019.”
As we prepare to mark the centenary of the Armistice, Craignish Parish Church features a beautiful wall-hanging with poppies that have been knitted by members of the community under the inspirational coordination of Pippa Shanks. It can be viewed at the church, which also displays biographical information about the Craignish men who were killed in the two World Wars, and will be at the centre of the Remembrance Day service on Sunday 11 November 2018.
Marilyn Shedden, Convener of Argyll Presbytery Business Committee, was a much appreciated speaker at the Netherlorn Churches Renewal of Worship Conference at Cuilfail Hotel on 3 February 2018. Soon afterwards Marilyn preached this sermon at Inveraray at the inauguration of a Hub-Style Ministry for the area. Its challenge has been widely appreciated and we are glad to make it available on the Netherlorn Churches site.
