A Western Isles minister has been selected to be the next moderator of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing).

Rev David Blunt, minister of the North Uist and Grimsay congregation takes up his duties at denomination’s general assembly in May.

Born in Essex in 1958 and brought up in Hampshire, Mr Blunt studied Environmental Science at the University College of Wales, which was followed by research at Dundee University.

Sensing a call to the gospel ministry, he attended the Free Church College for three years as a private student.

In 2000 he was inducted by the Free Church Continuing as an evangelist / church planter in Aberdeen. Seven years later he accepted a call to the North Uist and Grimsay congregation. He has served both as a presbytery clerk and clerk to assembly committees.   

Editor of the denominational magazine Free Church Witness since 2017, Mr Blunt is also the  the author of Presbyterianism, published by the Free Church (Continuing), and of Which Bible Version: Does it Really Matter?, published by the Trinitarian Bible Society.

He is married to Sybil from Point in Lewis and enjoys reading, walking and gardening.
