Deer Parish Church - Scottish Charity Number - SCO 12985
We are to be found in Buchan Presbytery, in the heart of
North Aberdeenshire, the area of Scotland known by its motto, 'from
mountains to the sea'. Following the retirement of Rev Jimmy
Wishart in December 2009 and actively seeking a new
candidate to further the cause of Christ's Kingdom in this part of
Scotland, we have found the right person to lead us forward and help us
create a new chapter in the Deer story!
New Minister in Place
We are delighted to
announce that Rev Sheila M Kirk has now answered God's call to come to
Deer. Rev Kirk was inducted to this charge on Thursday evening, 4th
November. We trust that Rev Kirk will find this a very interesting
area in which to live and work and we look forward to a fruitful and
beneficial partnership in the coming years.
