Two new ministers have taken up service with the Church of Scotland in Lewis.


Rev Gordon Macleod was ordained to the ministry and set aside to chaplaincy. He has joined NHS Western Isles as a part time chaplain in the Stornoway hospital.  


Rev Dougie Wolf has been inducted to Barvas Church of Scotland which has been vacant since Rev Paul Amed retired in 2015.  


Services were held in Martin’s Memorial Church of Scotland and Barvas Church of Scotland respectively to mark their ordination.


Both ministers belong to Martin’s Memorial Church of Scotland and journeyed together through the rigorous assessment, selection and training regime set out by the Church of Scotland.


A presbytery spokesman said: “With a further two candidates for ministry in training at the moment, Lewis Presbytery gives thanks to God that He is continuing to provide workers for the harvest.”
