Who We Are


Rev Dr Peter McEnhill

Peter studied for the ministry at St Mary's College in the University of St Andrews – Scotland.

As well as winning many prizes in theology, the prize he is most proud was winning was the Frank Muir Prize for Humour.

His first charge was Anderston Kelvingrove in Glasgow city centre. He left there to become Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster College, Cambridge. Whilst there, Peter also lectured at the University of Cambridge.

Peter has had a number of books and articles published during his career.

From Westminster College, in 2007, Peter became Minister of Kilmacolm Old Kirk in 2007 and in 2011 he became Clerk to the Presbytery of Greenock and Paisley.

Peter is committed to working with and alongside all faiths and denominations. He represented the Church of Scotland in the World Communion of Reformed Churches dialogue with the Oriental Orthodox Churches - and the Council of European Churches dialogue with the Easter Orthodox Churches.  He also represented the World Communion of Churches at the WCC Faith and Order Conference at Kuala Lumpur in 2002.

Peter has served the Church of Scotland on national bodies such as the Board of Social Responsibility, the Panel on Doctrine, the Ecumenical Relations Committee and the Mission and Disciple Council.

From 2008 - 2010 he was a member of the Church of Scotland Special Commission tasked with reviewing the article which commits the Church of Scotland to a territorial parish ministry.
