Leadership & Staff

To lead the church towards our vision we have a team of elders, led by our minister Kenny Macleod and assisted by Iain our assistant minister, who serve the church and community in a number of different ways.

The different ministries throughout the church have specific elders appointed in an oversight capacity.  We have a team of Deacons who are responsible for leading the practical and merciful aspects of work in the church and community.

We also employ some workers to help assist with areas of work within the church.

Come and meet the team!
