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, Rev Gus Macaulay, has been with us since 2005. Gus oversees our pastoral care, leads our leadership team and preaches most weeks.
Gus has a couple of theology degrees. He teaches at the Scottish Baptist College on the subject of Christian ethics and is a relief chaplain for a Glasgow hospice.
Gus is married with three children. He used to enjoy competing in triathlons, and still swims, runs and climbs mountains as often as he can. You can also see him swap the altar for a drum kit on Sunday mornings.
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, is part of the local chaplaincy team and 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 she also leads a team of Street Pastors in Glasgow City Centre.
Ruth has two giant rabbits that love to nibble on straw, parsley and wires for mobile phone chargers.
Our deacons serve as the leaders and trustees of the church in various ways. Our deacons are Beatrice Anderson (treasurer), Alex Duncanson, Iain Campbell, Lynn Scott and Frank Wayman. They all serve the church faithfully, lovingly and in unity.
We encourage everyone to get involved and play a part in the life of the church. We all work together in many ways, ensuring the church community is active, fun and relevant for those around us. If you have a particular skill or dream – we would love to hear it.
