Admission of New Elders

The photo below was taken on Easter Sunday, 31 March, following the admission of 2 more elders to Menstrie Parish Church Kirk Session – Mr Graham Hunter and Mrs Janette Hunter. A photograph had not been taken of Mrs Jill Ross and Mr Richard Paterson when they became elders a few months ago, so this was an ideal opportunity for a group photo. Featured are – from left to right:

Mr Jim Young (Session Clerk), Mrs Jill Ross, Mr Richard Paterson, Mr Graham Hunter, Mrs Janette Hunter and our minister, Reverend Mike Goodison.

In the background, the bare cross has been brought to life with daffodils, which were added by members of the congregation, during the service that morning. A joyful day indeed!
