SERVING AS AN ELDER FOR 50 YEARS – NEIL MACARTHUR IS HONOURED BY TAIN AND FEARN FREE CHURCH.

 

On Sunday 12th June 1966 Neil Macarthur was ordained as an elder of Tain Free Church.  That was fifty years ago and the late Principal Emeritus Clement Graham was minister of the congregation.

Today, Sunday 12th June 2016, Tain Free Church gathered round with their minister, Rev Alasdair Macaulay, to give thanks to God for Neil’s fifty years of faithful service to the Free Church of Scotland.
