The congregation of St Peter’s Free Church, Dundee were delighted to witness the ordination of Will Lind and his induction to the role of Assistant Minister on the morning of Sunday 4th September.
The service was conducted by the minister at St Peter’s, Rev. Andy Pearson, who is also currently Moderator of the Presbytery of Edinburgh and Perth. As part of the service, Andy preached a sermon from Ecclesiastes in which he encouraged Will to preach Christ, and the congregation to regularly be in prayer for the weekly sermon preparation.
Roddy Macleod, Clerk of Presbytery, ensured all the paperwork was in order before members of presbytery and visiting ministers were invited to lay hands on Will. One of the visiting ordained men, Will’s father, took this opportunity to give his son a hug! Andy prayed for the new Assistant Minister and then offered him the right hand of fellowship.
After the service, the congregation enjoyed tea and coffee and slices of a rather large cake that had been presented to Will earlier. They gathered together again that evening and Rev. Lind began a new sermon series in the book of Daniel.
Please pray for Will, his wife Marianne and their boys Jonathan and Michael as they continue to settle in at St Peter’s.
