St Andrew's Free Church will formally welcome Hamish Sneddon as their Assistant Minister when he is inducted on the 12th September.
Since moving to St Andrews in 2014 as the Associate Pastor Hamish has overseen the student work alongside serving the wider church family, while also studying part-time at Edinburgh Theological Seminary. He will be working across the church, with a particular responsibility to oversee the training of men and women for gospel service.
Hamish said, "We're excited and humbled at the opportunity to continue serving the church here in the coming years. We've loved our time thus far in St. Andrews and are hugely thankful for our church family, and are particularly conscious of the opportunities we have here in such a transient town to train up and send out men and women across Scotland and the world."
"Jesus said that the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few, and so our prayer is that the Lord would raise up workers for the harvest field from St. Andrews. We're keen to do whatever we can to serve to that end."
Hamish grew up in Perthshire, and after graduating from Durham University was a ministry trainee at Christchurch Durham. After teaching for a couple of years he spent five years working in Durham and across North-East England for UCCF and then moved to St Andrews with his family in 2014.
Hamish is married to Marije, and they have three children.
The induction on Thursday the 12th September will be held in Holy Trinity Halls, St Andrews at 7 PM.
