About the Team

Ruth Vertigan – Co-ordinator

Alistair Melville – Associate
Alistair has a love of communicating the Gospel through building relationships in the community. Always conscious of his calling to the Diaconate, he is happiest working at the coalface of the changing church.

He has a background in community development, welfare, project management, training and theology. His experience in Urban Outreach Ministry and Remote Outback Ministry has equipped him to work with rural congregations in a way that is nurturing, enabling and empowering.
