We had a great service at Niddrie last week with the induction of four elders, including Andy Constable, as our Assistant Pastor. Our elders each have different responsibilities.
- Derek Laidlaw is the elder responsible for members care.
- Craig Beattie is the elder responsible for member care.
- Marc Surtees is the chair of the elders and responsible for administration. He also has oversight of our teaching material and oversees, with Mez, our 20Schemes project.
- Andy Constable is responsible for the leadership of our Ministry team.
- I am responsible for the overall preaching/teaching ministry of the church, the pastoral oversight of the elders, the training and development of young leaders and the missionary support and development of our 20Schemes project (as a church we are/will be supporting church planters in England, India & Brasil).
Here is a clip from Andy’s induction in which he shares how he arrived at Niddrie.
