Tuesday 1st November saw the licensing of our new Lay Reader, John Starr
Our church was packed to capacity as friends from John’s church (St Mary’s, Dalmahoy) met together with the congregations of St Peter’s, Linlithgow and St Columba’s for a Festival Eucharist. John was licensed by Rt Rev John Armes, Bishop of Edinburgh. The sermon was delivered by Rt Rev Bruce Cameron (retired Bishop of Aberdeen and Orkney).
In customary fashion, a buffet followed the service. A cake was made by Liz Frew (St Columba’s) for the occasion.
