The man who will succeed Ballymoney’s Dr Ian McNie as Moderator of the Presbyterian Church has been chosen.
Rev Frank Sellar, of Bloomfield Presbyterian Church, was chosen as Rev Ian McNie’s successor on Tuesday night.
He was nominated by all but one of the church’s 19 presbyteries, made up of senior church figures.
Rev Sellar, who is originally from Coleraine, will be officially installed as moderator at the start of the church’s general assembly in June.
He said he was “humbled that the wider church has trusted me with this responsibility”.
Rev Sellar has been in ministry for more than 30 years and will become the church’s 177th moderator.
