We are delighted to welcome the Rev Alex McAspurren as the minister of the linked charge of Craigmillar Park and Reid Memorial, following his induction on 11 June 2019.
Mr McAspurren was ordained in 2002 and has served in parishes in Edinburgh, Stevenston and Corby. He has a qualification in substance misuse management and a long-standing interest in homelessness and addiction issues. He has been involved with Street Pastors and with local foodbanks, is a member of the Church of Scotland’s Society, Religion and Technology Project, is a recognised mentor for people exploring their call to ministry and is an occasional radio and television broadcaster on faith issues. We are very much looking forward to working with Mr McAspurren and with our friends in Reid Memorial and Priestfield Churches on developing a mission project for this part of Edinburgh.
There is much to be done and we face the future with faith and gratitude that God has shown us a way forward.
Mr McAspurren will lead worship in both congregations every Sunday, at 9.45 in Craigmillar Park and at 11.15 in Reid Memorial. Visitors are always made most welcome.
