The Moderator of Presbytery for 2018-2019 is Lorna Glen

Lorna Glen At its meeting on Tuesday 1st May 2018, the Presbytery of Aberdeen nominated Lorna Glen, Elder at Ferryhill Parish Church, as its Moderator for 2018 – 2019.

"I was born and educated in Edinburgh. Brought up in Broughton Place Church, in my teens I was active in the Mission Dept at 121 every Easter holidays preparing display Boards for World Mission Day at the General Assembly, tinting black and white photos!.

A few years later, as a recently qualified primary teacher, I was pleased to be asked by the Education Committee at 121 to contribute to the preparation of new "modern" Sunday School materials for use across the church. An exciting project in its time.

I Came to Aberdeen in 1972 where I have taught in four primary schools. The last, Victoria Road, as Headteacher for 18 years.

After retirement I became an Associate Teaching Fellow at Northern College, subsequently University of Aberdeen School of Education, teaching early education, religious studies and school leadership and management.

I became a member of Ferryhill Parish Church in 1972, was Ordained an Elder in 1992 and have been Session Clerk since 1996. I have been an elected and balancing Presbytery Elder for 12 years and have served as Convener of the Resources/Education Committee for five years and most recently Convener of the Planning and Deployment Committee for three years."

The Moderator's Cross

Given for the Glory of God,
the Service of His Church
and in a family's loving memory of
Rev Alastair F Lamont MA

When Alastair was Moderator of the Presbytery of  Aberdeen (1992-1993) he acquired and wore this silver cross whose elegant simplicity and starkness convey the message of Him who died that all might live.

On Alastair's death on 21 July 1998 his family presented this gift to the Presbytery of Aberdeen to be used as a badge of office by its successive Moderators.
