Reverend Andrew McGurk of St John's Church in Largs had his final official church engagement on Hogmanay, before retiring.
Reader Janet Ross said on our facebook page: "Andrew will be sorely missed by so many both in Largs and further afield. I also thought the Rev.Morton Mauchline was wonderful but St Johns has blessed again with another inspirational minister. Wishing Andrew and his wife Shiela a long, happy and healthy retirement. We will miss you."
Minister Ross Mitchell, formerly of St Andrew's Church in West Kilbride, took over as locum minister on New Year's Day at 11am in a rededication service.
