Published on 9 February 2024 1 minute read
The Moderator of the General Assembly is visiting the north-east of Scotland this weekend.
Rt Rev Sally Foster-Fulton said she was excited for the busy trip from 9-11 February which will see her preach three sermons in three days.
"I am so looking forward to spending time with members of the Presbytery of the Northeast and Northern Isles," she added.
"We're not letting the grass grow under our feet, with three services in as many days, and a wonderful opportunity to meet with colleagues, students and friends at the University of Aberdeen.
"Being able to listen, learn, share and celebrate together is such a joy."
The Moderator will begin her visit with lunch with Christ's College representatives.
The principle role of the Aberdeen-based college is to oversee the preparation and formation of ministerial candidates for the Church of Scotland.
Mrs Foster-Fulton will also visit Kingshill Trinity Church on Friday night and Fraserburgh Parish Church on Sunday morning where she will preach to both congregations.
On the 10th February, the University of Aberdeen will celebrate its Founder's Day with a chapel service.
The service will be conducted by Rev Marylee Anderson, a university chaplain, and Mrs Foster-Fulton will preach a sermon.
The Moderator will also speak at Cults Kirk Centre at an afternoon tea celebrating the centre's tenth anniversary.
Rev Stella Campbell, minister at Kingshill Parish Church and Moderator of the Presbytery of the North East and Northern Isles, said: "We are delighted to welcome the Moderator to the Presbytery of the North East and Northern Isles for Aberdeen University Founders' Day.
"Over the weekend, we have planned two special events which will recognise the long service of over 50 elders, Sunday School teachers and organists.
"In total, they have faithfully served in excess of 2000 years.
"I am looking forward to leading worship alongside the Moderator at Kingshill Parish Church on Friday night."
