About Us / Who's who


The Church of Scotland operates a 'territorial' ministry in which every part of Scotland is served by a church. Elders have responsibility for the caring of our finances, buildings and, more importantly, those who live in our parish.

Our minister is a minister of 'Word and Sacrament', meaning that her main roles are to lead worship and administer the sacraments. Our minister also performs many other duties including weddings, funerals, home and hospital visitations and community work.

The Church of Scotland, as part of the Reformed tradition, celebrates two sacraments - Baptism, where people become members of Christ's 'body', the Church, and Holy Communion, where we believe that Christ meets with us, and renews and refreshes us through a meal of bread and wine such as he had with his disciples on the night before his death.

Matters affecting our congregation are dealt with by the Kirk Session, comprising the elders and minister. Our church has adopted the unitary constitution of the Church of Scotland. Within that constitution our Kirk Session has formed a number of groups made up of members of the Kirk Session and members of the congregation to ensure that the voice of the church family is heard by the Kirk Session.

Bill and Rosemary RettieBill Rettie was commissioned and sent out from Lochbroom and Ullapool Church of Scotland in 1986. Serving with AIM (Africa Inland Mission International) he was assigned to Cheptebo in the Kerio Valley in North West Kenya to establish a new outreach programme with Africa Inland Church. Bill married Rosemary, an AIM missionary from Northern Ireland in 1988 and they served together at Cheptebo for the next 14 years. They have two sons, Andrew and Paul, who are living and working in U.K.

The Ullapool congregation has supported the family prayerfully and financially since 1986. The Cheptebo Centre is now managed and run entirely by national workers. The Centre has a flourishing demonstration and training farm, a large conference centre and an Agricultural Training College. Bill and Rosemary have now retired from AIM and live in Nottingham where they are serving in leadership positions in a large evangelical church. They still maintain close links with Cheptebo, making regular visits to encourage and assist in ongoing development of the strategic ministry.
