CLOGHER PRESBYTERY (From our Correspondent)

 

The ordinary meeting of the Clogher Presbytery was held in the Protestant Hall, on Tuesday, 3rd inst. The Moderator (Rev. W. H. BAILEY, M.A.) presiding. The others in attendance were: - Revs. D. CLEMENTS, D.G. SMYTH, M.A., R. WARNOCK, M.A., R. J. MILLAR, B.A., J.D. BOYLE, and J. FULTON. Messrs. J. STEWART, J. BARNETT, R. J. JAMISON, and G. McALPINE, representative elders from Aughentain (sic) congregation were also present.

 

The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed after which business of importance was discussed at length.

 

Rev. J. FULTON, who had decided to go to New York, gave a statement as to the reasons which influenced him in making his decision. He is being sent by Mr. MORTON of London, agent of Presbyterian Church extension committee of New South Wales, his passage being paid. Mr. Fulton tendered his resignation of congregation of Aughentain and asked for his credentials from the Presbytery.

 

The deputies from the session and committee made a statement showing their high appreciation of Mr. Fulton’s zealous and successful labours while in Aughentain. Rev. D. CLEMENTS also bore testimony to Mr. Fulton’s earnestness in the Ministry and his readiness to engage in any duties imposed upon him, these he always discharged to the best of his ability. Mr. Clements concluded by proposing that Mr. Fulton be supplied with the usual credentials to the Church in New South Wales: the proposal was seconded by the Rev. D.G. SMYTH, who as well as nearly all the others members, spoke in respectful terms of his removal………………

 

This is a list (reproduced as faithfully as possible) from the original book of farewell to my Presbyterian Minister grandfather on leaving Aughentaine Presbyterian Church, Fivemiletown, Co. Tyrone. He arrived in Sydney shortly before Christmas in 1891 so must have left this church very shortly after the presentation of this book.
