The group, on behalf of the whole congregation of Riverside, send warmest wishes to Eleanor and the congregation of St Nicholas as they embark on this new phase of ministry together.
A very warm welcome to Rev Ian Miller who takes over as our Locum Minister. Ian is no stranger to many of the congregation, having been minister at nearby Bonhill Parish Church for nearly 40 years, and we look forward to his time with us.
We’re not saying goodbye – Eleanor will continue to be with us for the time being as our Interim Moderator, but will shortly take up the post of Interim Minister at St Nicholas Cardonald in Glasgow.
During the service on Sunday 31 March Margaret Livingstone, Session Clerk, on behalf of the whole congregation, thanked Eleanor for all her efforts over the last few years, acknowledging the stronger and more positive position Riverside is now in and sense of enthusiastic optimism amongst us all for the future.
Tea/coffee and nibbles were served in the main hall after the service.
The Sunday School would like to thank all who supported their Table Top Sale – the grand total of over £500 was raised.
