Leaders

While the true leader of Centrepoint is Jesus, here are the folks you'll see up front on Sunday and who make stuff happen through the week.

 Lead Pastor - Gordon Wright

Gordon grew up on the edge of the Highlands and moved to Edinburgh for university in 2005, just as Centrepoint was launched.  Growing up in a Christian family, it was through Centrepoint that he experienced the life changing power of Jesus personally.

After working in property management for five years, Gordon responded to God's call to enter full-time ministry, and was ordained at the end of 2016.  

As Lead Pastor, Gordon serves Centrepoint through preaching, discerning God's direction for the church, and helping people find their purpose through relationship with Jesus.  Find him on Facebook.

Grace came to Scotland as part of the original church plant team, and studied at the University of Edinburgh.  Since then, she's been involved in just about every ministry in our church, and currently helps lead our kids' church team, as well as mentoring women.  She's also a full-time mum! Find her on Facebook and Instagram.

Gordon and Grace have one cute wee boy named Abraham, and a crazy puppy called Maisie.

Communications & Outreach - Rory Macdonald

A native of Haddington, East Lothian, Rory came to faith in Jesus through Centrepoint, having originally been hired as a drummer for our band!  He loves telling people about Jesus and helping others do the same.

With a background in journalism and a passion for evangelism, Rory works for Centrepoint on a part-time basis, overseeing our communications and outreach.  Find him on Facebook.

During a short-term mission trip to Edinburgh in 2006, God called Sarah to Scotland, and it was through Centrepoint that she and Rory met. She coaches Crossfit and serves the church in her spare time. Find her on Facebook.

Rory and Sarah have two amazing little boys, JD and Robbie.

Volunteer Leaders

At the heart of Centrepoint are our volunteer leaders, who give of their time and talents to serve Jesus and bless the church. Simply put, we couldn’t do what we do without these incredible people and their amazing teams!

Our ministry team leaders head up the different aspects of our Sunday morning service and make church happen on a weekly basis - from Kids Church to Production and everything in between, find out more about these fantastic teams and how you can be involved here.

Our community group leaders lead a host of different groups that meet across the city through the week.  In these groups, we grow and encourage each other in our relationships with God, each other, and those who don't yet know Jesus - find a community group that you can be part of here.
