Long Service Presentations

This evening Ferryhill Parish Church hosted the annual Presbytery Service in which the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Rt Rev Lorna Hood, preached a message of hope and service, and then presented long service certificates to some of the folks who have served over thirty years as office bearers in the Kirk within presbytery. It was a delight to see a number of folks from Ferryhill amongst that number. Those whose certificates were presented tonight totalled more than 600 years of combined service. That is pretty mind-blowing. There are some folks from Ferryhill who could not be there tonight, and in total all Ferryhillers totalled 547 years. This is the power of working together in community. A true blessing.
