Gordon Palmer

I’ve been minister at Claremont Parish Church since September 2003. I’m from Glasgow and have been a minister for over twenty years – I was at a church in Glasgow and then in Edinburgh before coming to Claremont.

I see a psychiatrist every day (my wife) and have two daughters, both at Calderglen. I enjoy playing badminton and hillwalking, listening to music & going to gigs, reading & films, following sport especially Aberdeen FC (no sheep jokes, please, we have heard them all.

Anne Paton

I was brought up in Balloch (Loch Lomond). On leaving school, I studied at Jordanhill College and then worked for ten years as a Primary School Teacher. During this time I studied for a degree in psychology with the Open University. In 1996, I went back to study divinity at Glasgow University, and was ordained a Church of Scotland minister in 2001, when I became the minister of East Kilbride Old Parish.

In my spare time I enjoy relaxing with family and friends, and when I can find the time, I am a keen gym member.

Christine Bush

I’ve been a Humanist Celebrant since 2009. Prior to that my work brought me in contact with people of all ages and backgrounds, in social work settings, teaching in a further education college and more latterly with a project raising awareness of domestic abuse.

From my early twenties I’ve enjoyed living abroad and in a number of places across the UK, always working my way further north, finally arriving in Glasgow 29 years ago where I put down roots and made my home with my husband and daughter.

In my spare time I try to keep fit, meeting up with a friend each week for a four mile run, although the knees are beginning to complain these days. Yoga and swimming offer a more gentle work out!

I find pottering in my garden to be a great form of relaxation, although there are times when it can turn into a battle with nature.
