THE former minister of Crail and Kingsbarns Parish Churches is to be inducted to a Perthshire charge next week.
Reverend Mike Erskine will be inducted at Alyth Parish Church next Tuesday, March 27, at a service which will begin at 6.30pm.
Mr Erskine was suspended by the Church of Scotland for two years in August 2010, although his suspension was later halved
Some of his former parishioners in Crail and Kingsbarns are expected to travel to Alyth to attend the induction.
One former parishioner described Mr Erskine as a “very highly respected minister with a very strong record as a devoted pastor.’’
A 49-seater bus has been booked and others will be driving up to Alyth to show their support.
