The Presbytery of Argyll’s new moderator says she is ‘deeply honoured’ to have been given the role.

Dunoon-born Reverend Janet MacKellar was installed at Kirn and Sandbank Parish Church in Cowal last Tuesday, June 1.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, only three members of the Presbytery were present, with all others tuning in online.

Janet’s family connections to Argyll go back generations, covering the many parishes of the Argyll Presbytery, including Cowal, Bute, Islay, Jura, Cairnbaan, Craignish, the Ross of Mull and the island of Iona.

The Presbytery of Argyll also includes South Uist where Janet’s grandmother was born, so she says Argyll is well and truly in her DNA, and she welcomes this opportunity to serve the church.
