A large congregation witnessed the Institution of a new Rector in St Augustine’s Church, known as ‘the wee church on the walls’. Revd Malcolm Ferry was instituted to the Londonderry parish at a Service on the evening of 14 May.

Malcolm, his wife Carol and family will not have far to move. Before taking up his new post Revd Malcolm was Rector of the Waterside parish of All Saints Clooney. During his time in this parish he oversaw the major renovation project of the All Saints Parish Centre and the development of a significant range of outreach programmes into the local community.

A wide range of family, friends, parishioners and colleagues from across the community attended the Institution Service. It was also attended by Mayor Martin Reilly as well as two African bishops and Bishop John McDowell (Clogher diocese).

The preacher was Bishop John McDowell and the Service was conducted by Bishop Ken Good. After the Service a reception was held in the adjacent hall. This was an opportunity for a number of speeches to welcome Malcolm, his wife Carol and family to St Augustine’s.

Prior to ordination Malcolm spent a number of years in business. His first parish as Rector was in Castlerock.

St Augustine’s Church is situated on Londonderry’s city walls, on Palace Street in the city centre. It is in the diocese of Derry and Raphoe.
