We are delighted to report that Rev. Jean de Villiers was inducted to the charge of Auchterhouse linked with Monikie & Newbigging and Murroes & Tealing on 8th September 2017.
We look forward to working with Jean and getting to know him and his family.
Rev Mike Mair has been a minister since last century and retired from action in 2007 after serving in Clydeside, Coventry, Aberdeen and Dundee. He is delighted to have been allowed some extra time to help the congregations of the Sidlaw kirks, during which he has made many new friends. He is hopeful of continuing for as long as his body and brain (!) permit. Now that he has the time he's always eager to talk with members on any matter of concern. He continues his life-long interest in the Hoops FC and the wines of Southern France.
We have been very fortunate that Mike has served as our Locum Minister during the vacancy. With the induction of Rev. Jean de Villiers taking place on 8th September, Mike has gone on a well-earned holiday to a favourite place in France.
Here is his thank-you letter to the people of the parishes.
