Who's who

Rev. Dr Nikki Macdonald
Tel: 01864 502139
Email: minister.upperclyde(at)gmail.com

Nikki was ordained and inducted on 29 October, 2014.
Born in Australia, with Scottish grandparents who used the word 'home' and meant 'Scotland', she moved to the UK in 1992.
Over the years she has lived and worked on the Isle of Iona, living in community and working for the Iona Community; managed a small, independent Christian bookshop with ecumenical and social justice leanings; found herself doing a Divinity degree for 'fun' and ended up doing an accidental Masters by research, and a subsequent PhD focusing on the drama of discipline in early modern Scotland (she spent a lot of time with John Knox whilst doing so).  In the midst of post-graduate studies, she finally addressed a long-held call to ministry and began her training.  In her spare time she does the occasional stint on radio, plays guitar, enjoys baking bread, spending time with friends new and old, quite likes hearing and telling shaggy dog tales, loves the sea, is currently avoiding writing a book, and continues in the quest to find the perfect cup of coffee.  She is not quite sure how she ended up in such a brilliant parish, with such excellent folk, but is delighted to be here.
