In Professor John Swinton's role as Master of Christ’s College he is responsible for candidates for the ministry in the church of Scotland. John states 'It has been my pleasure over the past few years to watch Amy grow into the role of a parish minister. She is a kind, warm and committed person who really does have a heart for God and for people. In the midst of the sometimes overwhelming bad news that surrounds us, Amy’s ordination and the ministry that will undoubtedly emerge from it provides a beacon of light that is an encouragement to us all. On behalf of the College, I wish her every blessing in her ministry now and into the future.'
