Kirkmabreck minister retires

Members of Kirkmabreck Parish Church marked the retirement of their minister, the Rev Pete Aiken, with a presentation and a surprise buffet lunch recently.

The minister and Mrs Aiken received a cheque from the congregation and Mrs Aiken was presented with an arrangement of flowers from Mrs Joan McKie, President of the Guild.

Mr McQuistan, Session Clerk, drew attention to the minister’s ability to communicate with confidence the Christian message and to his unstinting commitment to the spiritual welfare of the parish.
