He succeeds Rev Paul Amed who retired in 2015.

Memorable services were held in Martin’s Memorial Church of Scotland and Barvas Church of Scotland respectively to mark the ordination and setting aside of Gordon and the ordination and induction of Dougie.

Both Gordon and Dougie belong to Martin’s Memorial Church of Scotland.

They journeyed together through the rigorous assessment, selection and training regime set out by the Church of Scotland for its Ministers.

With a further two candidates for Ministry in training at the moment, Lewis Presbytery gives thanks to God that He is continuing to provide workers for the harvest.
