Five years ago, Geoff and Maddie Murray turned up at Cornerstone Free Church in Edinburgh with the hope of planting a church one day. On Saturday 22nd August 2022 we were able to celebrate Geoff’s ordination into Free Church ministry and the Murray’s next step of the journey.
Geoff will be working alongside John Johnstone in Kirkaldy while doing preparatory work for a plant in Levenmouth. This will hopefully strengthen Kirkaldy Free Church while allowing a new plant to be formed.
Geoff grew up in the East Neuk of Fife. Though not from a Christian family, he was introduced to and transformed by the gospel as a teenager. Maddie is originally from Sweden and has spent the last five years working for Safe Families in Edinburgh. Their son Alasdair was born during their time in Edinburgh and was a treasured part of the Cornerstone church community.
During their five years in Edinburgh, the Murrays made a huge and invaluable contribution to the life of Cornerstone and we hope and pray that God will use them to be an even greater blessing to the work of the gospel in Fife.
