On Sunday 18th November at the 11.00 am Service, Rev Scott Burton preached as Sole Nominee. The sermon that Scott preached can be found at http://www.brightonschurch.org.uk/sermons/. After the service, the congregation voted 204 to 12 in favour of calling Scott to be our new Minister.
Scott was delighted to accept and, accordingly he is now the Minister Elect for Brightons Parish Church. This will be Scott’s first charge having just completed his probation at Aberlady linked with Gullane.
From now until Monday 3rd December, the congregation has the opportunity to sign the call for Scott, indicating our support for him going forward. The call will be available on Sundays 25th November and 2nd December but will also be available to sign in the Small Hall during the week as and when organisations are meeting.
There is much still to do regarding the arrangements for Scott’s ordination and induction but, for now, we give thanks to God for this clear call and we continue to lay all the arrangements into His hands.
