September 21, 2020

The Free Church of Scotland is delighted to announce the appointment of Andrew Giffen as its new Chief Executive Officer. Mr Giffen will take up his new post at the beginning of November.

Andrew has a background in both finance and church leadership. Having trained as an accountant he then studied theology in Vancouver before working in an executive minister role in a large church in Newcastle, then as associate minister of a church in Glasgow. 

Board of Trustees Chairman Donald Forsyth said, "I'm delighted to welcome Andrew to the role of CEO of the Free Church of Scotland. Andrew joins us at an exciting time as we work towards our vision - a healthy gospel church for every community in Scotland.

I'm immensely grateful to Scott Matheson our out-going CEO. During his five years in the role, Scott has made a very significant contribution to the efficient running of the central office and the life of the wider church. I will miss his counsel and wish him every success in his new role."

Please pray for Mr Giffen as he prepares to take up his new role and give thanks for the service of his predecessor Mr Matheson.
