My family and I became part of Bishopbriggs Community Church in 2016, when I was called to be the Church Leader.
I was ordained as a pastor in 2011, before which I was the Team Leader of The Ark in Ayr, a pioneering initiative of twelve local churches for young people.
I studied Theology at the International Christian College, Post-Grad Alcohol and Drug Studies at Paisley Uni, before becoming a community drugs worker, and I then undertook additional ministry studies at the Scottish Baptist College (UWS) before becoming a Baptist minister.
I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, motorcycles, music, fishing, and a wee bit of politics. I have a special concern for prisoners, addicts, and others on the margins of society. I believe that the local church is God's way of bringing His Kingdom on the earth.
My passion is to mobilise missionary disciples to see the nation of Scotland transformed by the love and power of Jesus, and to go to the ends of the earth with the Good News – the great commandment and the great commission!
As well as being a Core Leader, I oversee the kids’ work at BCC, alongside my husband, Fraser. I head up a talented team who run an annual summer club called Park Week for primary school children within our local community.
Since BCC established links with community groups in Rwanda, I have organised church trips to continue the good links already made. I am a primary school teacher in a local primary school one day a week and enjoy looking after my three boys the rest of the week.
I have been around the church since the beginning and became part of the Christian Community of Praise and Family Life when the Avenue was built in 1980.
I retired from being a Heath Visitor in the East end of Glasgow ten years ago. Over the years I have had a number of roles and I am currently a Core Leader and a housegroup leader.
I joined the church in 1995 after moving to Glasgow from Oxford with my wife Halcyon. We have three children, now part of the youth work at the church. I am part of the children’s work and family service teams and co-ordinate the finance team. I work as a physicist at Strathclyde University and enjoy playing squash and cycling
