Who are we

Darnley Mill Church are a community of people who are following Jesus – we aim to be disciples who make disciples. As Christians we believe we have good news to share with the world: that begins right where we are now and wherever we may go – even to the ends of the earth!

Each of our core team have had a personal experience of knowing Jesus Christ as a living Saviour and Friend however we submit to him as the Son of God and Master of our lives. We believe he always has our best interests at heart. 

David and Kerry Holmes

David and Kerry have four children: Seth, Noah, Phoebe and Libby. They live close to the Darnley Mill area. David works in local government and when Kerry is not running after the children she finds time to cut people’s hair… with their consent, of course! One of David’s skills is starting conversations with people – he sharpened those skills with an orgainsiation called ‘Tell a Tourist’. When you meet him, ask him about that! David and Kerry enjoy getting to know new people.


James and Linda McKerlie

James and Linda have a history in the Darnley and Priesthill area. James was brought up in the area. He remembers many of the haunts of these parts although his career as a secondary teacher took him away from the area. James and Linda worked together in church ministry in the Govanhill area for many years. Linda is a GP and they have got three older children: Andrew, Sarah and Stuart. James serves as the chaplain to Queen’s Park Football Club, so is a frequent visitor to Hampden Park. James and Linda are always busy caring for people.

Allan and Jacqui McKinnon

Allan and Jacqui have had a home in the Parkhouse estate which neighbours Darnley Mill for almost 30 years. They have three grown children and six grandchildren. For many years they worked in Tanzania, East Africa, serving God and his people in orphan and childcare, community care, church leadership training and discipleship. Jacqui has been working in recent years with Christians Against Poverty and Allan lectures in local Bible College. Allan and Jacqui love having people in their home at every opportunity.
