With so many others across our beloved Church, I am giving thanks for the life and labours of Jim Cruickshank, who died in his 80th year on December 30, 2015.

Jim had an amazing life and an incredible ministry that has left a wonderful mark upon our Church.  He was known for his intellect and his kindness, his wisdom and his wit.  He had a keen mind and a big heart. He loved stories – he loved to hear them and he loved to tell them. Indeed that was a hallmark of his preaching and teaching.  He had a profound knowledge of the New Testament and had an incredible way of helping us see our lives as words within the Word.  Jim’s teaching, as much by example as by word, brought many people to faith in Christ.
