Sunday June 9 was a special day at Oban Parish Church.

The minister, Reverend Dugald Cameron had the pleasant duty of baptising eight young people – the family of Stephanie and Robert Wynd (pictured second and fourth from right) in the presence of family and friends, and the regular congregation.

Kian, McKenzie, London, Freya, Kendall, Skylar, Dakota and Piper were given God’s blessing and welcomed as members of the congregation.

During the service, dad Robert explained that prior to coming to Oban he had been in the Services and away from home for long periods, and as a consequence he and his wife Stephanie had never got round to having the children baptised.

Following a visit to Oban they both fell in love with the town and made the decision spend the rest of their lives here. They had become regular visitors to the parish church, with the older children enjoying the Sunday School, where their bright and friendly personalities quickly made them new friends.

Stephanie said: ‘It just seemed natural to have the children baptised.’
