All Saints Church, Challoch, near Newton Stewart, St. John the Evangelist, Stranraer and St Ninian’s, Portpatrick together comprise the three linked charges of the Episcopal church in Wigtownshire, south-west Scotland.
In October 2013, the Reverend Michael Buchanan Hills was appointed Priest In Charge. His rectory is based at Glenluce and is therefore roughly equidistant to all three.
It has been an interesting process for the laiety: no longer having a priest to ‘call one’s own’, we have had to take a more pro-active role in the spiritual and practical activities of our churches. It is a change which we have willingly embraced and one that with God’s grace will give our churches a relevance to twenty-first century society.
