She is an experienced trainer and has worked with many churches over a number of years, helping them to rediscover their missional focus. Kay was a senior leader at Central church, Edinburgh for ten years, catalysing a missional community network across the city and running internship & other faith development opportunities.

She worked in student ministry for a number of years, following on from her original starting point in teaching.
Her Kay and her husband Stuart live in Edinburgh and are parents to two teenagers and one super-friendly border terrier. She loves to eat good food with great friends, hates winter when she can’t use her scooter to nip around the city and is always looking for a recommendation of a good book.
