Since first meeting in November 2017 the Nominating Committee prayerfully continues to seek the person God has chosen to pastor Coll linked with Connel. The Committee has met on several occasions and actively pursued one applicant who subsequently withdrew.
Whilst this is disappointing the Committee had a very positive and encouraging meeting with the Vacancy Advisory Committee of Presbytery and has a strong understanding of the next stage of the process.
The Committee has also been advised to revise the Parish Profile and consider other forms of advertising. Every minister in Scotland receives a list of vacant charges each month and our Parish Vacancy has been included in this since December and will continue to be included until the post is filled.
The Nominating Committee would appreciate continued prayer support as they seek a new minister.
