Notice is hereby given that the Presbytery of Orkney has received a Call from this congregation of Moncur Memorial Church Stronsay addressed to Rev David Locke to be the new minister. This Call has been sustained as a regular Call, and has been accepted by him and his translation has been agreed to by the Presbytery of Buchan.
The Presbytery, having judged the said Rev David Locke qualified for this charge, has resolved to proceed to his induction on Monday the 6th day of September at 1.30 o’clock. The only circumstance in which this would not occur is if an objection occurs which may reasonably impede it.
Notice is given that if any member of this congregation of Moncur Memorial Church Stronsay, has objection to the life or doctrine of the said Rev David Locke you should intimate your objection at the earliest opportunity to the Presbytery Clerk. If you do this, you will also need to submit to the Presbytery Clerk appropriate evidence to substantiate your objection.
The Presbytery is to meet at 1.15 pm on the 6th of September 2021. If an objection is not notified in advance but is first brought at that meeting the objector must satisfy the Presbytery that there was no earlier opportunity to bring the objection to the attention of the Presbytery Clerk.
Unless a substantiated objection is made which is then upheld, the Presbytery shall proceed to induction of the said Rev David Locke without further delay.
By order of the Presbytery
Karen McKnight, Presbytery Clerk
