AN Aberdeen congregation has become the latest to break away from the Church of Scotland in the growing row over the ordination of gay ministers.

Members of Gilcomston South Church in Aberdeen’s Union Street will hold their first service as a separate congregation in a city centre hotel next month following the official resignation of the church’s minister, the Rev Dominic Smart.

“Our decision to leave was the culmination of careful study, sincere discussion and prayer over the past four years. We have weighed up many different options and believe the decision we have reached has the most integrity.

“We are looking forward to the first chapter in the life of our new congregation. We will join another denomination in due course but are not rushing into a new affiliation. Our heartfelt priority is to continue our wide-ranging work and worship in Aberdeen’s city centre communities.” ...

Oh aye, but if they really go independent, they'll inevitably fine tune their doctrine to include believer's baptism.

Aye Mike. But lets hope they don't make the mistake of lining up with that lot that prefers the bath to the shower.

They could even have an Independence Day celebration in Scotland, with caber flinging, kilted gospel warriours, bagpipes everywhere a-piping, and a big platform where the gospel could be preached all day long....

Ah, my imagination runs riot....

Mike, I like your description of the "smooth sailing of a big denominational ship" and the "sometimes rough ride of the little independent fisher of men's boat". Right up my street, bro!

Why bother? Why go through it all again? Stay independent and happy!

"Members of Gilcomston South Church in Aberdeen’s Union Street will hold their first service as a separate congregation in a city centre hotel next month"

Gilcomston South Church was ministered for many years by William Still a good Biblical and Calvinist preacher. Clearly Rev Still planted a good seed by the grace of God.

"The church almost closed during World War II, but a subsequent new approach proved controversial but ultimately highly influential. The church became one of the Church of Scotland’s most notable evangelical congregations, with a strong emphasis on biblically based expository preaching. The Rev William Still, minister of the congregation 1945-1997, developed this approach and gained international recognition. The systematic preaching of the entire bible, verse-by-verse and chapter-by-chapter, was then an innovation in the Church of Scotland; some others have subsequently copied this approach" Gilcomston South Church
