02 December 2019We welcome our new Minister

There was a great representation from 'north of the bridge' when we joined the good folk from Coll, Connel & Dunbeg at the Induction of the Rev. Bezuidenhout to our linked Parishes on November 28th. After the Service, which was led by the Presbytery of Argyll, the bell of St. Oran's Church rang out joyfully and the large congregation followed a young lone piper down the hill to the Village Hall in Connel.  Here a buffet feast, gathered from across our linked Parishes, awaited. We were treated to entertainment from pipes, voices, fiddle, accordian and the piano, so much talent. Community singing was joyful and the speeches were both fascinating and encouraging.
