New Reader Introduced in Oban
Mr Peter Mills was welcomed into the Church of Scotland Readership at a special service in Oban Parish Church on the evening of Friday 30th January. Rev Jeff McCormick, Moderator of Presbytery, conducted the service, and Rev Dr Ken Ross, Minister of the Netherlorn parishes, preached the sermon. Mr Mills was for many years a Lay Preacher in the Methodist Church in Warwickshire, and joined the Church of Scotland after moving to Oban in 2011. He has already contributed much to the life of Oban Parish Church, and we look forward to his gifts being used extensively in ministry in the years to come, both in the Parish Church and more widely in the Christian communities in Argyll.
