Hillhead Parish church has welcomed a new minister to its flock.
Bill Finnie (64) who is from Cambuslang, took up his new post as Ordained Local Minister on September 16.
Mr Finnie was a social worker for 25 years based in Glasgow and Lanarkshire before he answered the call to the ministry.
He studied part-time at Aberdeen University for his degree in divinity.
Mr Finnie said: “I am looking forward to my post at Hillhead very much. It is a very friendly church.
“The people go out of their way to make you welcome. “
He said his previous career as a social worker helped prepare him for becoming a minister.
Mr Finnie added: “Social work is a very worthwhile job. I have never regretted being a social worker.”
Hillhead Church is based at 2 Rosebank Avenue, Kirkintilloch. Services are held every Sunday at the usual time of 11a.
There is a small Sunday School and creche which meets during morning service.
Whether you are a visitor to the town or a local resident, the congregation are delighted to welcome you to fellowship.
