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.
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.
Loving Lord once again we come to you,
with grateful thanks for all you mean to us.
We ask in pray for your continuing forgiveness and love.
Lord forgive us for our wrong thoughts and deeds.
Help us to be more loving and kind to each other.
Help us to do the things you would have us do.
May we always look to you
for guidance and show us the way.
In Jesus name and for his sake.
"The power of prayer is a mystery, but we know that God hears us and acts according to his wisdom".

A prayer from the Celtic Christian tradition …
'Circle me, Lord.
Keep fear without, keep joy within.
Keep complaining out, keep peace within.
Keep despair without, keep hope within.
Keep deceit without, keep beauty within.
Circle me, Lord.

Lord, with the great benefit of hindsight, we can acknowledge that you have carried us through numerous trials in our lives … carried us like the Good Shepherd that you are. So who are we to imagine you cannot be trusted in the midst of this present trial? Who are we to believe that you will abandon us now?
You are our Shepherd; continue to carry us, we pray, and instil in us a childlike trust to pacify our fear. Amen.
