Gardner welcome six new elders

Six new elders were ordained by the Reverend Jane Blackley at Gardner Memorial Church in Brechin on Sunday, September 21.

Another elder, previously ordained at Summerhill Parish Church in Aberdeen, was admitted to the Kirk Session. The ordinations took place during Morning Worship, at which the regular congregation was joined by a number of family and friends.

Speaking after the service, Rev Blackley said: “The ordination of new elders is always a great occasion for the church. The service today was really special, in view of the number of new elders. It was a joyous occasion.”
