The ‘chair’ of Glasgow Churches Together, Major Steve Huyton, is to leave the city in July.

He and his wife, Major Margaret Huyton, will move from Rutherglen to be officers and ministers to the Salvation Army in Maldon, Essex.

Steve will also serve as County Ecumenical Officer for the Salvation Army in Churches Together in Essex and East London (CTEEL).

Major Bruce Smith, currently serving in Airdrie, has been named Divisional Ecumenical Officer for Glasgow and so will join the Glasgow Churches Together committee.
