Rev Dráusio Gonçalves, latterly minister of St Columba Foxbar, Paisley, is the new minister of Bristo. He was formally inducted by Edinburgh Presbytery at a special service on 5 December 2013.
We are grateful to Rev John McPake, minister of nearby Liberton Northfield parish, who served as interim moderator, and to Rev Iain Penman, formerly minister at Kames Lockhart Memorial Church at Gracemount, who acted as locum minister, during the period of vacancy.
Bristo aims to operate on the principle of “all member ministry” and to involve actively as many members as possible.
We are pleased to work along with other neighbouring churches. We also engage in joint activities within the Big Idea grouping. Visit http://www.whatsthebigidea.org/ for details. Members from those churches recently joined us for a prayer walk around the Bristo area.
