Our Minister



I’m Grant Barclay, a Church of Scotland Minister serving Orchardhill Church in Giffnock, south Glasgow. I’ve posted some material, sermons and thoughts here in the hope they might be useful or thought provoking.

This site also hosts material for the documentary Between The Lines which I filmed  in Israel, the Occupied Palestinian West Bank and the United Kingdom in 2017, a century after the Balfour Declaration. I edited and produced this piece which is intended to stimulate conversation on some issues surrounding life there today.

I’m involved in church life locally and regionally through the Presbytery of Glasgow, as I convene the Legal Questions Committee of the Church of Scotland. I have a longstanding interest in using advanced digital multimedia technologies well to support and enhance our communal growth in faith, the subject both of my doctoral research and part of my present ministerial practice.

I enjoy family, faith, food and discovering more about life. I continue to explore how we might use technologies well to help us to be a pilgrim people together.
