As a Presbyterian church, we are committed and accountable to a wider family of congregations across Scotland called the Didasko Fellowship.

In common with believers across the world and down the ages, we joyfully affirm the ancient creeds and confessions of the Christian Church. We hold the Bible to be our supreme authority in all matters of life and faith. And we hold to the Westminster Confession of Faith as a subordinate standard.

John Ellis

Chair Elder

We are currently in a period of vacancy, so John has kindly agreed to be our chair elder. His role involves overseeing the search process and, alongside the other elders, the leadership of the church.

John’s day job is helping the blind to see as an ophthalmologist at Ninewells. He is married to Betty and they have two grown-up children.

Susie Ford

Ministry Associate

Without Susie, we would all eat much less cake. However, her main role is to work with women within the church family, trying to help them live and speak for Jesus in all of life. She also helps coordinate the deacons group and many of the practical aspects of church life. She hates writing blurbs about herself.

Susie is married to Mark and they have two children. She is also studying theology part-time with Highland Theological College and has recently become the SU regional worker for Dundee and Angus.

Emily Brown

Ministry Apprentice

Although originally from Somewhere North of Aberdeen, Emily studied English Literature at Glasgow University. She moved to Dundee and was surprised to re-discover the sun. She spent a year working with students on UCCF’s Relay Programme, seeking to help them share the gospel on their campus.

Having now joined the Grace Church team, Emily still works with students and now teens. Her desire is to see them built up in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Emily studies part-time at Cornhill Scotland, where she is learning to understand and teach the Bible. She is on the right in this photo.

Peter McEleny

Ministry Apprentice

Pete came to Dundee as a student and never left. After studying Politics and learning how not to answer questions, he worked with students for a year on UCCF’s Relay programme. Pete is married to Natalie and they spend most of their time living like an 80-year old couple drinking tea and eating cake.

As part of the Grace church team, Pete will work with students and teenagers in the church, seeking to see them grow in knowing and loving Jesus.

Like Emily, Pete is studying part-time at Cornhill Scotland in Glasgow, where for two years he will learn to handle and teach the Bible.

Elders & Deacons

John, Will, Hugh, Mark T and David serve Grace Church as elders. As elders they lead the church and have responsibility for the oversight of everything we do as a church family.

Selu, Kathryn, Peter K, Margaret, Andrew and Paul serve Grace Church as deacons. As deacons they have particular responsibilities for specific areas of church leadership including catering, liaising with mission partners, Sunday Club etc.
