The Moderator of Presbytery for 2017-2018 is Rev Keith Blackwood

Ian Aitken At its meeting on Tuesday 2nd May 2017, the Presbytery of Aberdeen nominated the Rev Keith Blackwood, Mannofield Church, as its Moderator for 2017 – 2018.

Keith was born and raised in Motherwell and attended Glasgow University from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Divinity degree and a Diploma of Ministry. After a probation period in Alloway, Ayrshire, he was ordained and inducted to his first charge of Bearsden North. He served there for 10 years before moving to Mannofield in 2007.

He has been an active member of the Church both locally and nationally serving on several committees and task groups. He has been a Padre in the Army Cadet Force for 7 years.

Mannofield Church has recently completed a £1.5 miliion redevelopment of its building and Keith, along with members of the Church, looks forward to an exciting future, building stronger relationships with the community.

Keith is married to Katrina, who is a Healthcare Chaplain at ARI, and has 3 sons. In his spare time he enjoys watching and participating in sport. In the past he has played Rugby and Football and is now a keen runner – participating in ‘Parkrun’ over 50 times at Aberdeen Promenade and Hazlehead.

He is looking forward to representing the Church in the City through the Year ahead.

 

 

 

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.
