Partick Official Opening
Saturday 19th May was a red-letter day for the Partick congregation when a ceremony and service was held to mark the official opening of their new place of worship.
Shortly before 3:00 pm those present gathered outside the church and sang Psalm 122. The moderator of the Southern Presbytery, Rev James Haram, Shettleston, was asked to lead in prayer. Afterward, Rev Rob McCurley cut a ribbon to officially open the church and halls.
Following, Rev McCurley conducted worship inside the church and preached an appropriate sermon from Colossians 1:18 highlighting the supremacy of Christ.
After the service most retired to the adjacent hall for refreshments and fellowship. Mr. McCurley was invited to cut a specially baked cake for the occasion after which the Partick minister Rev Andrew R Allan gave a vote of thanks and asked Mrs. Janette Allan, wife of Mr. Donald Allan, Partick deacon, to present an inscribed bible to Rev McCurley to mark the occasion.
Following the singing of Psalm 133 the Rev Greg MacDonald, Ness, closed the afternoon proceedings in prayer.
Thanks to all our guests and friends who came and shared in our historic day.
