The URC inducts two new moderators
The URC’s General Assembly met from 8 to 11 July to celebrate, discuss, and make decisions on the life and work of the URC.
On the opening day of its General Assembly, 8 July 2016, the United Reformed Church inducted two new moderators – the Revd Kevin Watson and Mr Alan Yates. Moderators of General Assembly are the URC’s national figureheads, representing the denomination both at home and abroad.
Mr Watson and Mr Yates will serve as moderators for two years, continuing the URC’s leadership tradition of ordained and lay ministers serving together. The duo succeeds the Revd David Grosch-Miller and Mr John Ellis, who were thanked for their hard work during the induction service.
