Appointment of Rev. Douglas Clark as Associate Minister

At the March 2019 meeting of the Kirk Session, it was agreed to appoint the Rev. Douglas W. Clark to be our part-time Associate Minister. Douglas will assist us in our pastoral work and will provide pulpit cover for ministerial holidays whenever he is able. Before his retirement in 2015, Douglas was the Minister of Lenzie: Old and prior to that he was the Minister of East Kilbride: Old – my home congregation! More recently, Douglas has acted as Locum at Kirkintilloch: St David's. Douglas and his wife Janette have been worshipping with us at Bearsden Cross over the past 2-3 years and have recently moved their 'lines' from Cadder church to become members of Bearsden Cross. Both Douglas and Janette feel very much at home here, and Douglas has conducted worship on a couple of occasions to date and will do so again on Sunday 7th April. Douglas will work with us two afternoons per week, and will focus solely on pastoral visiting. Douglas brings with him a wealth of ministerial and pastoral wisdom and I know that he will be a great asset to our congregation. We plan to have a soup and sweet Congregational Lunch to welcome Douglas and Janette after the service on Sunday 28th April and I’m sure you will join me in welcoming Douglas and Janette into our midst, and wish Douglas every blessing in his ministry with us.
