Today was a full day with the ordination of three elders and their admission along with a further two existing elders, who have transferred to Saltcoats St Cuthbert’s from elsewhere, to the Kirk Session. They were duly welcomed.

Elsa (Session Clerk) new elders Judy & Alan, admitted elders Roy & Bea, Sarah (minister) and new elder Graeme.

We celebrated Holy Communion, always a significant point in the church calendar, and pondered on the meaning of eldership and discipleship.

Most of Session were able to be part of a celebratory photograph
