All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17


Alistair has been our minister since 2002. He grew up in the area, and studied law before taking his BD, and then his PhD in the New Testament. He's married to Elaine, and they have two daughters, Rebecca and Hannah.

Alistair is also chaplain to Stonelaw High School, with whom we've enjoyed a long association. Their services are held in our Sanctuary each year, and over the last few years we've arranged an annual joint Christmas concert with them.



Therese joined us in 2008 as our Outreach Development Worker to develop the congregation and equip them to be God's people here at Stonelaw and in the community. Despite her youthful appearance, Therese is a mother of three, and a grandmother of two. Before she came to us, she worked as a Chaplaincy Support Worker at Faslane naval base.

You can contact Therese directly at: therese.reid@stonelawchurch.org



Heading up our musical talent is Alan Jenkins. Alan leads the praise group here at Stonelaw Church which plays a vital role in our Sunday morning worship. Alan is also a secondary school teacher; he's married to Joanne and is father of three daughters. 



Jackie cares for the building on a daily basis, to make sure Stonelaw always looks its best.

Elders | stonelaw

"The office of elder is one of the spiritual offices of the Church of Scotland and is concerned with the oversight and pastoral work of a congregation." 

That simple, neat and accurate formula is a good way to begin the story of a complex, occasionally controversial, history and theology underpinning the ministry of eldership in the Church of Scotland. Elders are peacemakers, pastoral carers, teachers, leaders by example, and decision makers who are tasked with preaching and teaching those who belong to the church. At present we have 40 serving elders who meet on the first Tuesday of every month.


Although church membership is never required to become a Christian, or be part of the church family here at Stonelaw, it is a simple way of identifying with a local group of believers who attend the same church and are willing to be identified as a representative of it.

At Stonelaw Church, we currently have more than 300 members. If you are interested in finding out more about membership, please get in touch we are happy to provide more information.
