INDUCTION OF REV SCOTT BLYTHE TO STAMPERLAND PARISH CHURCH – The Session Clerk of Stamperland Parish Church, Norman Bolton, has invited members of Greenbank to attend Rev Scott Blythe’s induction, which takes place on Thursday, 30th November at 7pm. The service of induction will be followed by a short social event after which tea, coffee and home baking will be served. Formally, the induction is to “Stamperland in deferred linkage with Netherlee” and so the induction has significance for Netherlee as well as Stamperland.   This will be the first time two churches in the Clarkston area will be heading towards imminent linkage (and, eventually, union) and so will be something of a landmark event.

Scott comes to Stamperland having spent most of the last ten years as a pastor in the Presbyterian Church of North America. Prior to moving to America, Scott served as a detective with the Metropolitan Police, as a university chaplain in Aberdeen and as a Church of Scotland minister in several parishes in Edinburgh.

CHRISTMAS CARDS are on sale today in the Fraser Hall after the morning service to raise funds for the Lodging House Mission. Cards cost £3.50 for a pack of 10. Come and see the selection which is available.
