An Elder of Elders!

James Armstrong (on the far right) has been an Elder in our Church for 51 years and has now enjoyed the preaching of six ministers! That surely is a great record!

Here we have James and Joyce Armstrong & family. Well done James! We look forward to many, many more years of your company.

The same day we presented James with his certificate, we welcomed new elders into the fold: Karen & Alan Armstrong.
