Elders and Deacons

The leadership team include the pastor, 11 elders and 9 deacons. Click HERE for a photograph and list of their names. Our elders have a shepherding role and lead the spiritual care of the congregation. The deacons carry out a ministry of practical care and service. They also oversee the use of the resources, funds and buildings that God has entrusted to the local church for the work of the gospel.

Angus Mackay is our Session Clerk.


Jonathan Warde is Clerk to our Deacons’ Court:


Music and song are led sensitively by a small team of precentors, vocalists, and musicians. We sing a blend of Psalms and hymns with some accompanied and some unaccompanied praise. If you have a singing our musical gift we would be glad to involve you in this ministry.
