New Youth Camps Administrator Appointed

January 29, 2019

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Kirsten Macdonald as the new Free Church Youth Camps administrator.

Kirsten will be based in the denomination’s offices in Edinburgh and expects to start around the beginning of March. Kirsten replaces Laura MacAulay who has been in post since 2010.

Mission Board Chairman Rev. Bob Akroyd said, "The Mission Board is delighted with Kirsten's appointment. She brings to this post a wide range of life experience, relevant skills and a commitment to mission in the local church and in the global church. Kirsten is passionate to connect young people with the gospel and we pray that she will know God's blessing in her new post and that young people would continue to come to know, follow and serve the Lord Jesus Christ through the ongoing work of Free Church Camps."

Free Church of Scotland Chief Executive Officer Scott Matheson said, “We had a strong field of applicants for this role and we look forward to welcoming Kirsten to the team.”

"We'd also like to thank Laura for all her hard work and commitment to camps over the years and wish her well for the future."

Kirsten grew up in the Inverness area before heading to university in Edinburgh. After graduating in 2012 she moved to Lewis where she currently works for Community Energy Scotland, a small Scottish charity that helps community groups with renewable energy efficiency and energy innovation projects. Kirsten hopes to relocate to Edinburgh in the next few weeks.
