On Friday night, 3 of us from Stranraer joined people from the other four RPCS congregations at a meeting in Glasgow for a presentation by Let Them Live, a pro-life ministry under the oversight of the Irish RP Church.
The presentation was given by two of Stephen’s former classmates at Theological College - Joel Loughridge (Cloughmills RPC) and Philip Dunwoody (Dervock RPC). They explained how the ministry began and spoke about the need for the church to argue against abortion from an explicitly Christian perspective.
From a Stranraer point of view, it was encouraging to hear the work is under the oversight of the Cookstown RPC session (a recent church plant, pastored by another of Stephen’s classmates) - a reminder that even small congregations can play a significant part in something like this.
The hope is that something similar can be started in Scotland. You can read more about the evening on the RPCS website.
