Meet the Team
I have lived and worked in Glasgow all my life and am passionate about the wellbeing of the people of our city. I became a SP when we first formed and have retained my belief that we can and do make a difference. We are part of a team with one another strengthened by God's love and sharing that love with each person we meet.
I am an enthusiastic evangelist for good causes and have found Street Pastors to be the perfect good cause. I have spent my life fixing things and have learned (the hard way) that it's God's job to fix people so I now just try to set the scene for Him to do just that with as little interference as possible from the world - including myself.
I worked as a schoolteacher for 23 years teaching religious education before sensing God was calling me to do something new with my life. Working as co-ordinator for Street Pastors has allowed me to employ skills developed over the years in different contexts and to express my compassion for people by demonstrating in very practical ways the love of Jesus as we ‘listen, care and help’. I worship at East Mains Baptist Church in East Kilbride. My other passions in life are reading, music, walking and keeping fit.

He belongs to Newton Mearns Baptist Church where he is a house group leader and is also a member of the Scottish Baptist Lay Preachers Association.

Although originally from Edinburgh, Glasgow has very much got ‘under my skin’ - you CAN take the boy out of Edinburgh, it seems! In my ‘day job’ I serve as minister at St George’s Tron Church of Scotland in Nelson Mandela Place, and my involvement as a Street Pastor gives me the chance to engage with the life of the city centre by night as well! In my spare time, I enjoy family, films and good food!
I am a member of Croftfoot Parish Church where I also work and serve as an elder. I enjoy spending time with family especially my Granddaughter Beth and I am an avid Dads Army fan. A favourite passage of scripture is in Matthew 9, where Jesus speaks of the Harvest being plentiful and the workers being few. This for me is the essence of Street Pastors in our City of Glasgow, serving alongside other believers, who long to see our city transformed by the presence of Jesus.
My parents are Glaswegian and I came to live here in 1998 with my husband, Mark and sons; Alick, Andy and Dougie. I joined SP in 2014, just in time for the Commonwealth Games and found a perfect way for me to practically demonstrate God’s love to the people of this amazing city. I work as a Chartered Surveyor, am a Director of our family businesses and of the Community Development Trust in my home parish of Baldernock, near Milngavie.
