Rev Sandy Macpherson

Cowal Kirk’s Locum Minister is The Rev Sandy MacPherson, who was appointed to the post by the Presbytery of Argyll on 1 April 2021.

During the vacancy, Sandy will undertake all the duties of a parish minister (with the exception of chairing meetings of the Kirk Session – a duty which falls to the Interim Moderator), including pastoral visitation, conducting services of Holy Communion, weddings, baptisms and funerals.

On a rotational basis, Sandy will conduct worship on Sunday mornings across all the churches which comprise Cowal Kirk.

After a long business career, Sandy responded to a call to ministry, took a degree in Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Glasgow, and then undertook several placements within the Presbytery of Argyll before being ordained to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament as an Ordained Local Minister.
