Recently at our recent General Assembly the Rev E Trover Kirkland was admitted as an ordained minister into our denomination with effect from his signing the Formula. On the same day the General Assembly admitted the Ballyclare & Doagh congregation as a congregation of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) with Mr Kirkland as minister.
A delegation from the Southern Presbytery travelled to Northern Ireland on 1st July to recieve Mr. Kirkland and his congregation at a special service of recognition, held in Torrens Memorial Hall, 29 Mill Road, Doagh. Ballyclare, Co. Antrim.
This sermon was preached by Mr. Beers at the service of recognition.
