Grace Baptist Church Alloa is planted by Grace Baptist Church Edinburgh.
At present, Ali McLachlan is the church-planting pastor of Grace Alloa. We are grateful for the support and encouragement of Grace Baptist Church Edinburgh, who are overseeing this church plant. We believe in an independent, elder led church under the rule of Christ. As such, we are seeking to train leaders who are able to serve God’s people here. We currently have two ministry trainees who assist in preaching and worship.
Ali McLachlan is a Scot raised near London, with a background in graphic design and print marketing. After seminary in Bedfordshire he served as a missionary in the Middle East. He pastored churches in Liverpool and East Ayrshire before becoming the church-planting pastor of Grace. He is married to Caroline with five children.
We believe that eldership is the biblical model for church leadership. Kev Wong is a fellow elder. Kev has served as an elder in Liverpool and works in Christian publishing. He is married to Lucy and has four children.
