THE Presbytery of Glasgow has welcomed the new Archbishop of Glasgow with an informal lunch which also marked the publication of the Declaration of Friendship which deepens the relationship between the two churches.

The Rt Rev Bill Nolan was warmly welcomed by the presbytery on the day the Declaration between the Church of Scotland and the Catholic Church in Scotland was published.

The Rev Dr Grant Barclay, Interim Clerk of the Presbytery of Glasgow said: "We were privileged to be present at the Archbishop's installation and are delighted to welcome him among us in Glasgow.

“Our churches share much in common and we look forward to developing many existing partnerships in coming years as well as creating new opportunities to witness to Christ together."
