Markinch and Thornton Parish Church of Scotland

INTIMATION – PRESBYTERY EDICT

The following edict was read out in both Markinch and Thornton churches on 9th January 2022 and for the second time on 16th January 2022.

Notice is hereby given that the Presbytery of Fife has received a Call from this congregation of Markinch and Thornton addressed to Dr. Conor Fegan to be the new minister.

This Call has been sustained as a regular Call, and has been accepted by him. The Presbytery, having judged the said Dr. Conor Fegan qualified for the ministry of the Gospel and for this charge, has resolved to proceed to his ordination and induction on Thursday the 20th day of January at 7 o’clock within Markinch Church. The only circumstance in which this would not occur is if an objection occurs which may reasonably impede it. Notice is given that if any member of this congregation of Markinch and Thornton, has objection to the life or doctrine of the said Dr. Conor Fegan you should intimate your objection at the earliest opportunity to the Presbytery Clerk. If you do this, you will also need to submit to the Presbytery Clerk appropriate evidence to substantiate your objection.

The Presbytery is to meet at 6:30pm on Thursday, 20th January. If an objection is not notified in advance but is first brought at that meeting the objector must satisfy the Presbytery that there was no earlier opportunity to bring the objection to the attention of the Presbytery Clerk. Unless a substantiated objection is made which is then upheld, the Presbytery shall proceed to the ordination and induction of the said Dr. Conor Fegan without further delay.

By order of the Presbytery.
(signed)
Rev. Dr. David Coulter
Presbytery Clerk.
