leadership and office bearers

  • ivor macdonald


    Ivor has been minister of Hope Church since July 2012. He trained for the ministry at Aberdeen University and Westminster Theological Seminary and served congregations in Lewis and Skye before coming to Coatbridge.



    Many years ago I was taught from the shorter catechism, "The only Redeemer of God's elect is the Lord Jesus Christ, who, being the eternal Son of God, became man, and so was and continues to be God and man in two distinct natures, and one person, for ever." These great truths sustain me yet.

  • Rowan robertson


    Rowan was born and bred in Coatbridge. He was born again in Coatbridge at the age of 19. 

  • Cameron MacIver

    Elder, CLERK to deacon's court

    Cameron was brought up in a Christian home and came to trust in Jesus as a young teenager. He believes being a Christian should shape every area of our lives, including how we do business and our care for the environment.  Like the others at the church, he often fails and needs forgiveness and a gentle reminder of how much he still has to learn.

    Growing up in a Christian family, David drifted away in late teenage years. Brought back to the Lord, he made a public profession of faith at 23 and has known the true blessings and promises of God in his life since.
