Church History: Moira Neil and Dr Iain MacMillan

Today, Friday 1 Nov 2019, We had an excellent Service to celebrate the life of Moira Neil, a great servant of  Jesus Christ and our Church.
  It is perhaps good to see Moira again in full flow with Iain MacMillan where they discuss the history etc of Henderson Church.   Both Moira and Iain remain in our thoughts and memories and we think of their families also.
 This video is only one of many under the Media/ Videos tab on this site.  I also commend to you videos on the history of Old High.  It is always good to look forward to the future hopes and desires of our Church  but memories and history also have a special place in our heart.
