Pastor Andrew Rollinson and his wife Janet are originally from Yorkshire, Andrew from York, Janet from Hull, coming to Scotland in 1985. They have two grown up children.
Andrew spent a gap year in Uganda and, after studying zoology at Oxford, worked in rural evangelism and then trained for Baptist Ministry at Spurgeon’s College London.
After working in a large Southern Baptist Church in Dallas as ‘British Intern’ Andrew was called to Westgate Road Baptist Church, Newcastle-upon-Tyne where he served as Pastor for 13 years. Andrew was then called as Pastor of Morningside Baptist Church, Edinburgh (1995 -2003) and then served as the Ministry Advisor for the Baptist Union of Scotland based in Glasgow.
“We count it an enormous privilege to be called by God to St Andrews Baptist Church and very much look forward to travelling a journey of faith with the congregation.” said Andrew. He adds that he knows almost nothing about golf, has a better swing when it comes to fly fishing and is glad the walking terrain is a lot flatter than in the West.
