Tullibody St Serf’s recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of Jimmy Martin’s ordination as an Elder.

Jimmy was born in what was then Lwów in eastern Poland (now called Lviv and part of Ukraine), moving to Scotland when he was 17 and working in the coal mining industry. He was ordained in Cowie Parish Church on June 14 1965 and also served in Dunfermline before moving to Tullibody in the 1980s.

He was married to Agnes, who passed away in 2013; and has four grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.

Jimmy is pictured with locum minister the Rev Bill Izett.
