Recently at our recent General Assembly the Rev E Trover Kirkland was admitted as an ordained minister into our denomination with effect from his signing the Formula. On the same day the General Assembly admitted the Ballyclare & Doagh congregation as a congregation of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) with Mr Kirkland as minister. Our minister and congregational elder Mr. John N Gillies were part of a delegation from the Southern Presbytery who travelled to Northern Ireland on 1st July to take part in a special service of recognition, where Mr. Kirkland and the congregation were formally received into the denomination at a service held in Torrens Memorial Hall, 29 Mill Road, Doagh. Ballyclare, Co. Antrim. Earlier in the day members of the delegation visited the church where Rev Josias Welsh, grandson of John Knox, preached and the graveyard where he is buried. These are some of the images taken on the day.
