Thomas Davis (pictured with his family) will become the first student of the summer to be licensed for the Free Church ministry at a special service on the Isle of Lewis later this week.
Subject to successful Presbytery trials, on Thursday, June 19th the 31-year-old will be licensed by the Western Isles Presbytery in Back Free Church at 7.30pm.
The father-of-three has now completed his studies at Edinburgh Theological Seminary, and will graduate later this month.
After his licensing Mr Davis will be eligible for a call. Some of his fellow students will be licensed the following week.
