Ministry Team

Our ministers, David (Parish Minister) and Rory (Team Minister) work together to deliver Christ-centred worship. They also serve the community through conducting weddings, baptisms, blessings, funerals as well as pastoral care and community services like school and care home services. Bill, who is a reader, is closely involved in delivering worship (including funerals) across the parish.

The team is supported by Morag Muirhead, a retired Ordained Local Minister. As well as leading our Thursday lunchtime service, Morag also delivers funerals and Sunday worship across our locations, as well as performing a number of other roles in the church. 

Session Clerks and Elders

Our church is governed by our elders, a group of women and men who serve the church as part of what is known as the Kirk Session. Their efforts are complemented by a large number of volunteers who support the work of the church. Thank you! 🙂 New faces are always welcome in the team. 

Our Session Clerks oversee the administration of the church – from keeping the minister right at Session meetings, to dealing with correspondence, to engaging with Presbytery, to developing relationships across the congregation and beyond. It’s a big and central role in the life of a church. 

Joint Session Clerks: Mary Elliot and Ian Fleming. Send a message

Safeguarding

We have a safeguarding officer who – as the role’s name suggests – ensures that we keep people safe from harm in the church, particularly children and adults ‘at risk.’ This includes overseeing relevant training and compliance and registration with the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG). If you have a concern about safeguarding, please get in touch with our safeguarding officer or the Parish Minister. 

Safeguarding Officer: Morag MacNeill. Send a safeguarding message in confidence.
