  • IAIN MACLEOD

    ELDER, SESSION CLERK, Treasurer

    Many years ago I was taught from the shorter catechism, "The only Redeemer of God's elect is the Lord Jesus Christ, who, being the eternal Son of God, became man, and so was and continues to be God and man in two distinct natures, and one person, for ever." These great truths sustain me yet.

  • Cameron MacIver

    Elder, CLERK to deacon's court

    Cameron was brought up in a Christian home and came to trust in Jesus as a young teenager. He believes being a Christian should shape every area of our lives, including how we do business and our care for the environment.  Like the others at the church, he often fails and needs forgiveness and a gentle reminder of how much he still has to learn.
