Deborah Van Welie) our new minister on the evening of her induction in to Polmont Old. With members of Falkirk Presbytery and our congregation including her friends and family over 250 people attended this unique event. The Singing was uplifting and the occasion was ably supported by tales of Debbie from those who know her. The evening was tinged with sadness when we said farewell to Rev. David Wandrum and his wife Sheila and their grandchildren who has kept our church and congregation together during the last 15 months. We all recognise that Debbie has a new challenge ahead, with the support of us all we wish her well for the future here in Polmont.
