The Minister

The nominating Committee elected by the congregations of Ayr St Leonard’s and Dalrymple chose Rev Brian Robert Hendrie as their sole nominee. 

He conducted worship in both churches on Sunday 11th January, 2015 after which those on the Electoral Register voted enthusiastically to have Rev Brian Hendrie become their new minister.

Brian is married to Yvonne and they have one daughter Chloe who is 17.

Brian has placed great emphasis on his pastoral work in all his congregations with particular emphasis on children and young people.  In the course of his ministry he has carefully embarked on many innovative ideas in outreach to the communities in which he worked.

Brian has been a very popular, well loved and respected minister in all his charges and your Nominating Committee believe that he is without doubt the man who, with the help and guidance of God’s Holy Spirit, can lead the congregations at Ayr St Leonards and Dalrymple into the future that God intends for them.

We are looking forward to his Service of Induction in St Leonard’s on Thursday 5th March at 7.00pm, which will be followed by a Welcoming Social.


This welcome to Brian would not be complete without an expression of our deeply grateful thanks to Rev Kenneth Yorke who has been a wonderful guide, philosopher and friend  for the last two years.  He has been a superb Interim Moderator and we will always be thankful to him for his wise counsel  and  spiritual leadership over these two years. Now he is able to resume his retirement, we wish him many more happy and healthy years  with his wife, family and old cars.
