About Thomas
  • Education: Bachelor of Divinity (University of Glasgow) 1999 Certificate in Counselling Skills (Strathclyde University) 2009
  • Experience: Most of my experience has been in Coatdyke Congregational Church, however most of my preaching began in The (Presbyterian) Church of Scotland. I found myself in demand for freelance preaching, being invited to churches all over the West and Central Scotland to lead worship. This locum cover, provided me with great insight into differences in culture and traditions, which can be found only 5 miles from a sister church, affirming my belief that all are different.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I struggle because I am dyslexic and wish I could be clearer with my writing skills but I'm learning to articulate this better nowadays - perhaps my final ever sermon will make sense!
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: The story of the Shepherd in the field, based on the 23rd Psalm.
  • Family: Married to Tracy, two beautiful young daughters.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preaching should be like a woman’s mini skirt - short enough to keep an interest, long enough to cover the essentials! From a Roman Catholic Priest!
  • Books that have had an impact: "No better than I should be, the making of a minister." by the Rev’d Jimmy Dow and "God’s Conman" a biographical account of the late Rev’d Jimmie Currie
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Whilst leading worship, I used the old hymn, When the roll is called up yonder... I’ll be there." I got so enthusiastic, that I pointed straight to the floor of the church when I got to the "I’ll be there part." Perhaps it was a sign of things to come for me!
  • What I want on my tombstone: He wanted cremated!

    Challenge we face as Christians - 9/11 and forgiveness and judgement....are we comfortable being Christians?

    Soon as I get in from work, I like to get comfortable. I kick of my shoes, strip off my clothes, head for a shower and then put on my normal clothes – denims, t-shirt and trainers – l love to be comfortable and hate wearing shirts of any kind or suits for that matter! When I sit more

  • Rule Breakers?

    Contributed on Aug 17, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    A general sermon - not too deep on the relationship of rule breakers and our Biblical heroes and Jesus Christ.

    And so from last week, the essence of the message that I delivered is quite simple, there are times you can be between the rock and the hard place, not through your choice, not through your own actions but you’re there because of a course of actions that others have taken. Our lives are more

    The real reason for the season. Is it really to be with the family and if so, which one?

    We will return to our homes tonight after this service where we welcome the Immanuel into our lives. The majority of us will return satisfied in the knowledge that our homes are warm and for some there will be the last minute items that require our attention, but all in all, everything is done and more

  • Temptation Is Just Another Way Of Life

    Contributed on Aug 26, 2008
    based on 2 ratings

    Many trials and temptations, but all too often we are not even aware of them.

    We’ve been with Matthew’s passage many times in our Christian worship, we’ve heard the Word of God and we know all about temptation. In fact over the course of preaching, the trials of temptation come up in many forms, many ways. After all, we all know about temptation – we’re experts at more
