Meet the Team


Gordon Kennedy

I became Minister at Craiglockhart in 2012, following service as Minister at New Cumnock and Portpatrick and Stranraer. The bible describes Christian ministry as “prayer and the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:4), which is encouraging others to grow in knowing Jesus through the bible and by means of prayer. I am married to Fiona and I enjoy reading, opera and jazz music, but not gardening.


Gordon McBirnie

My role at church is Mission Development and Youthwork. We have various groups in the church for young people which you can find out more about elsewhere in this website. I also help to run other groups which encourage us in our discipleship. I am married to Tamzin and have two sons. I enjoy reading and DIY though I don’t seem to be very good at it.
