Macdonald Ali   Alex MacQueen
Ali Macdonald - Pastoral Worker   Alex MacQueen - Children and Schools Worker
Ali is our pastoral worker, meaning that she spends most of her time with folk in the church and the community. She works at 100mph and gets through more in a day than most would in a week.   Alex work involves a lot of time with children ages 0-12. Be it infants at Fun Time Toddlers, school assemblies in the local primary schools, Sunday Club, large scale children’s events in the church or youth club kids at JaM - if it’s children’s ministries - Alex will be there with bells on!

Support Team

Anderson Charlie   Halkett Eric
Charlie Anderson - Church Manager   Eric Halkett - Gift Aid Co-ordinator
Charlie has been working with the church since 2009 when he took early retirement from the Tax Office.

He is the equivalent of a swiss army knife in that he can turn his hands (and his mind) to most tasks.
  Eric works in the church office two days a week helping with our finances and database needs.

When he's not in the office, Eric can be found working on a lot of other interests, including his Boys Brigade work.
