Photo's of David's final service on Sunday 22nd October 2017 before retiring
Our minister, The Rev David Redmayne, led his final service before a packed congregation at BCNC. Many in the congregation commented afterwards on what a lovely, touching and emotional service it had been. Afterwards, through in the Guthrie Hall, David was presented with a cheque from John Cornbill on behalf of the congregation. Margaret Ross presented Carol, Davids wife, with a lovely bouquet of flowers and John Jones handed over a 'Book of Memories' to David from the congregation. During the service the young folk presented David with a card and a lovely gift. A great time of fellowship was had by all. Our hope and prayer is that David enjoys his retirement with his wife Carol and that Gods blessing will be with them both.
