CLERGY representing all denominational churches in Murwillumbah and pastors of all Northern Rivers Presbyterian churches will be special guests when Chris Lindsay is ordained and inducted as pastor of Murwillumbah Presbyterian Church tonight.

Reverend Lindsay takes over the reins from Andrew Unwin who served in the role for five years before leaving in January to take up a position in the Northern Territory.

Reverend Lindsay, his wife and four children relocated to Murwillumbah early in the New Year from Brisbane where he undertook pastoral care at Mitchelton Presbyterian Church following eight years as a chaplain at Queensland University of Technology.

The pastor, who attained his Bachelor of Theology degree at Moore College in Newtown, Sydney, will be ordained and inducted during a simple ceremony at the church from 7pm.

The Lindsays moved into Murwillumbah soon after Reverend Unwin's departure and Reverend Lindsay has spent the intervening time prior to his ordination, liaising with local church leaders, meeting parishioners and conducting church services on Sundays and at nursing homes during weekdays.
