Thursday, 8 March 2018

The Rev Clarke Deering was installed as the new minister of the Presbyterian congregations of Fintona and Ballynahatty and Creevan before a large congregation in Fintona Presbyterian Church on Saturday afternoon.

Mr Deering, a native of Rosslea in Co Fermanagh, said he was excited about the next chapter in his life and has received a warm welcome from members of his new charges.

The Moderator of the Omagh Presbytery, Rev Robert Orr, led the service of installation. Also taking part were Rev Linda Keys who read the scriptures, Rev Charles Clements, who preached a sermon on the church and the Clerk of the Presbytery, the Rev Robert Herron, read the statement of the standards of the church, including the rule of faith.

The Moderator then put several questions to Mr Deering regarding his personal faith, sense of call, his understanding on the church and the conduct of his ministry.
