Our core leadership is made up of the minister (also called ‘the pastor’), our community worker and the deacons. The word deacon means “servant”.
Our minister is Rev Gus Macaulay and has been with us since 2005. Gus oversees our pastoral care, leads our leadership team and preaches most weeks.
Gus is a qualified lawyer and has a couple of theology degrees too. Gus is a bivocational pastor and has written and taught on the subject of bivocational ministry and collaborative leadership. Gus used to enjoy competing in triathlons, and still swims as often as he can.
Ruth Kelso is our community worker and is employed to work with young people and the local community. Ruth runs our kids and youth club on a Friday night. Ruth is a school chaplain and is part of the local chaplaincy team. Ruth also helps lead Scripture Union clubs in the local primary and secondary schools.
Ruth is a qualified teacher and also has a theology degree. She has served in places like Albania, Lebanon and Mozambique, and also leads a team of Street Pastors in Glasgow City Centre.
Our deacons lead the life of the church in various ways. Our deacons are Beatrice Anderson, Alex Duncanson, Iain Campbell, Lisa Mohapatra, Lynn Scott and Frank Wayman. They all serve the church faithfully, lovingly and in unity.
Just as our deacons lead in many ways, other folks in our church lead or serve in various ways and everyone is encouraged to play a part in the life of the church. We all try to work together as one team and in a collaborative way.
