Leadership Team at St Silas

martinMartin Ayers

Rector | Senior Pastor |

Martin is married to Cathy, and they've got 3 daughters. He moved to Glasgow and joined St Silas to be our Rector in January 2016.

Martin used to be a Lawyer in London before training to be a church minister. He's originally from the North East of England, so is still getting used to being thought of as a "southerner" in Glasgow.

In his spare time he loves playing squash, eating curry, and following the fortunes of Middlesbrough Football Club.
