Our new session clerk and her team.
My name is Nara Nisbet. I moved to South Queensferry with my husband Paul when I was expecting our first child in 1991. We joined Queensferry Parish Church enthused by the vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. We soon became involved in leading a teenage group within the Church and then I co-ordinated the Youth Fellowship. I have an interest in pastoral work, help with the ‘stepping stones’ bereavement support group, and in recent years have led the pastoral team. My husband Paul and I sing in the Worship band at the 10am service.
I am rather apprehensive but also keen to take up this new role as Session Clerk. It is a privilege to be part of a ‘session clerk team’ and I’m looking forward to supporting the minister and congregation.
My name is Carol McDivitt. I’ve been attending Queensferry Parish Church since 1989. I have been involved in a number of roles over the years, including organising crèche, junior church and roles on the Congregational Board.
I became an elder in 2010 and have been a Deputy Session Clerk for the past four years. My role includes organising rotas for the Sunday Welcome Teams and Communion, including preparation and set up. I enjoy helping in this way as the responsibilities and attention to detail plays to my particular organisational strengths.
I am looking forward to working with Nara and other Depute Session Clerks as we strive to provide a high quality service to the Church community.
My name is Sandra Buttrick and I first attended Queensferry Church in 1991 when I moved to South Queensferry with my husband and four children. I found the church to be most welcoming and felt that within the church family I have found what I had been missing in my life.Session Clerks which I did with a few reservations. However, I found it to be a very rewarding role which I have decided to continue with Nara as Session Clerk. My role as deputy session clerk has been mainly centred around Communion duties but I am looking forward to working with the team and developing other roles within the post.
I became a member of the church in 1994, had my four children baptised in 1996. In 2010 I was asked if I would become an elder and I have enjoyed this role . I have had several roles within the church, Junior Church superintendent being the most challenging and rewarding. I have also sat on several Church committees. I too was asked four years ago if I would like to take on the role as one of the Deputy Session Clerks which I did with a few reservations. However, I found it to be a very rewarding role which I have decided to continue with Nara as Session Clerk. My role as deputy session clerk has been mainly centred around Communion duties but I am looking forward to working with the team and developing other roles within the post.
I am the local registrar in South Queensferry and feel that my job there also helps the church community.
