I was born in 1966, and grew up in the Vale of Leven, and old industrial area of West Central Scotland. I did my first theology degree at Glasgow University, graduating Bachelor of Divinity with honours in Systematic and Practical Theology in 1991. In 1991-2 I was Peter Marshall Bursar at Princeton Theological Seminary, New Jersey for which I received a Fulbright travel fellowship; I graduated Master of Theology, with a major in Preaching and Worship, in 1992.
I did my Probationary Period at St John’s Oxgangs Parish Church in Edinburgh from 1995-6, before being ordained as Associate Minister at Currie, where I served until 1998. I was then Minister of High Carntyne, one of the biggest congregations in the East End of Glasgow.
In 2004 I was inducted as minister of Old High St Stephen’s, Inverness. The congregation has two places of worship: St Stephen’s, built to serve the then suburbs at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and the Old High, the original parish church of the city, which hosts the annual ‘Kirking of the Council’.
Im the Church of Scotland I have been a member of the Iona Community Board and the Parish Development Fund. I am currently the chair of HIV charity Waverley Care’s Highland Project.
