The work of the Church depends on many people, indeed on all the members of the congregation! In the following pages, we introduce our Rector, David Shepherd, as well as the members of the Vestry, the body that manages the Church.
Other Church leaders include the members of the pastoral team: Bob Hamilton, Judy Robinson and Steve Tattersall (from left to right, below).
The Young Church, an important aspect of our mission, is led by Vivien D'Arcy. St Mary Magdalene's is fortunate indeed to have two talented musicians, Bill Sinclair and Alastair Davidson, as Director of Music and Organist respectively.
Dr Nigel Peyton was elected the 54th Bishop of Brechin on 18 May 2011 by the Electoral Synod.

Bishop Peyton held a number of posts in the Diocese of Brechin, latterly as Priest-in-Charge at All Souls, Invergowrie, before moving to England in 1985.
