Ministry Team

We believe every member is a minister.
1 Corinthians 12:27  Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

 Parish Minister - Tony Stephen 

Hi there,

I believe my job is to work each day to be more the person God has made me to be, and to encourage you as you do the same.  

Depending on God’s grace, my aim is to be a good dad, a good husband, and to serve the community of Banchory with my gifts and talents.  I have been called to the ministry of Word and Sacrament, as a servant and a teacher, and those will be my priorities - to teach the scriptures, to lead worship, and to serve and guide our community to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this place.

Grace and peace

Music Director - Kathy Davy

Kathy Davy is our Music Director for worship in the West Church.  This is a development from the traditional role of organist.  Kathy’s ministry is the overall co-ordination and leading of music in Sunday worship.  We aim to include a blend of traditional and more recent music that reflects our inter-generational church family, and to encourage the gifts of a range of musicians and singers each week, alongside our choir.  Kathy and the team would value your prayers.  If you play an instrument, sing, or would like to help the technical team please contact the Church office.
