The New Zealand Evangelist

Church of Scotland.—

Church of Scotland.—

The Rev. W. Kirton, late of the Chapel of Ease, Roslin, has been appointed page 320 by the Colonial Committee of the Church of Scotland to their congregation in this place. Mr. Kirton, with his wife and family, sailed from London in the Berkshire, and arrived here in the Woodstock, from Nelson, on the 17th ult. On Sabbath last he commenced his labours with much acceptance.

We are happy to congratulate the members and adherents of the Established Church of Scotland in having thus secured among them the services of a stated pastor; and our earnest prayer is, that Mr. Kirton's ministry may be eminently successful in advancing pure and undefiled religion in his own congregation, and that he may prove a blessing to the entire community.
