Our Past Ministers

Rev Bill Izett (Locum to 19th May 2016)
Hello. Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus, from St Serf's web site, and from me, Bill Izett - currently Locum in their vacancy.

Born and brought up in Blantyre, nurtured in the Christian faith at Livingstone Memorial Church, trained as a draughtsman, before receiving a call to the ministry of the Church of Scotland, leading to studies at Glasgow University and Trinity College.

I spent 33 years at Law Parish, serving during that time as chaplain at Law Hospital.  Retirement led to residence at Clackmannan and to worship in the church there.

Since retiring I have been richly blessed in offering 10 years as Locum to various churches in Stirling Presbytery.
My main role in these posts has been to encourage those congregations to be diligent and faithful in their witness.

At present it is a great privilege to work with the friendly, warm- hearted , bible loving congregation at St. Serf's Tullibody, who are responding so graciously to every challenge put to them in a vacancy situation.

Our prayer here is that one of you, a visitor to our site, may one day be the means of leading us on in our Christian journey

Verse of the day

Rev S. Raby (Interim Moderator to 19th May 2016)
The Revd Scott Raby, L.Th, was born in Dundee, but raised in Dunfermline where he attended Milesmark Primary and Queen Anne High Schools. He became a Christian at the age of 15 years as part of the Youth Fellowship of the North Parish Church in Dunfermline.

On leaving School, Scott joined the Royal Bank of Scotland, but left there a year later to go into the retail trade, with Fine Fare in St Leonards Street (now an Asda Superstore), and the Co-op where he was depute-manager in their Rosyth and Abbeyview Supermarkets.

In 1981 Scott went to New College, Edinburgh, followed by two years in Trinity College Glasgow. His probationery period took him to Angus, where he served in the former Ladyloan St. Columba's Church, Arbroath, and in Inchbrayock linked with Melville South Church, Montrose.

Scott is married to Cherie, Clinical Lead Nurse with Marie Curie Cancer Care in Forth Valley, Fife, and Tayside. They met at an evening service in Mains of Fintry Church, Dundee while Scott was in Arbroath. The minister of Mains of Fintry at the time had been involved with the Youth Fellowship in the North Parish. Scott and Cherie married in May 1990, and have two children, Rebekah and Stephen.
