Attached is a copy of a newsletter that Lanark Presbytery put out on the 31st October 2010. Lanark Presbytery are to reduce by 4 their ministry posts. This is not an easy thing to do and requires much preparation and prayer. The Area Meeting for Forth takes place on 17th November in the Small Hall at 7.30pm. All who are interested in finding out what is happening and wants to contribute to discussions for the Forth, Carnwath and Carstairs Churches are welcome to come along.
