Sad news

Friends will learn with sadness of two friends to whom we owe much.

George Philip was minister of Sandyford Henderson for 40 years. He died peacefully at Erskine Home on Saturday 16th February.

He produced Bible reading notes, with his wife Joy, which were food for this own congregation and many other Christians beyond. They have also been an inspiring resource which fellow preachers have benefited much from in the preparing of their own expositions of Scripture. He is survived by his children John, Ruth and David.

Willie McEwan died suddenly and unexpectedly, just before Christmas.

By trade he was a pipe fitter on North Sea rigs who, when Rheumatoid Arthritis struck, turned his attention to computing. He showed great flair and ability for it. He set up our first website and organised our bookings for the Preachers’ Gatherings over the last couple of years. He is survived by his wife Linda, his daughters Lynn and Lauren and his grandson, Jack.
