Passing of Rev Dr Iain D Campbell

January 28, 2017

It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Rev Dr Iain D Campbell, minister of Point/Knock Free Church. Last Sunday Dr Campbell was transferred from the Western Isles Hospital to Glasgow where he passed away early this morning. He was 53.

Dr Campbell was born in 1963 and grew up in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis.  He studied at Glasgow University before proceeding to the Free Church College where he trained for the pastoral ministry. He was ordained as minister at Snizort Free Church, Skye in 1988 and spent seven years there before moving to Back Free Church in 1995. A further transfer took him to Point Free Church in 2009. He was Moderator of the Free Church General Assembly in 2012.

We extend our deepest and prayerful sympathies to Iain’s wife, Anne, their children: Iain, Stephen and Emily, his mother, Lily, together with the wider family.
