The Rev. Stuart C. Steell B.D. Cert. Min.

Rev Stuart Steell BD Cert. Min.
The Rev Stuart Steell, was born in Glasgow in 1960. He was brought up in the Knightswood area of the city and he went to both primary and secondary school there as well as attending the Boy’s Brigade, Sunday School, Bible Class and Youth Fellowship at St. David’s Church.

His path after school led to his beginning an apprenticeship in plumbing in 1977 with a small plumbing and electrical contractor.

Having completed his apprenticeship and qualified through the appropriate City and Guilds, Stuart worked with Safeway in the Construction Department for five years. By this time he was married, had moved to Falkirk and was worshipping at St. Andrew’s Falkirk, where he was an Elder. Believing God was calling him, he tested the call and was accepted as a candidate for the Church of Scotland Ministry in 1986.

He went to Glasgow University graduating Bachelor of Divinity in 1990. After a further year as part of the prescribed course, he gained a certificate in Ministry. Stuart was licensed by Falkirk Presbytery in 1991. His probationary year was at Kilsyth Burns and Old and then, in the summer of 1992, he was open to a call from a congregation.

Trinity Church Renfrew called him to be their minister and, on 23 September 1992, he was ordained and inducted here.

On Sunday 29th September 2013, Stuart informed the congregation at the end of the service that he intended to follow God’s Call and preach as sole nominee at the vacancy of Kilsyth Burns and Old Parish Church.

Having been accepted by a unanimous vote of the congregation after preaching at Kilsyth on 27th October 2013, Stuart conducted his last service at Trinity at the Watchnight Service on 24th December 2013.

At his Induction Service at Kilsyth Burns and Old Parish Church on 15th January 2014, over fifty Trinity members made the journey to Kilsyth to wish him well at his new charge. In being translated to Kilsyth Burns and Old Church, Stuart became the longest serving Minister in the history of Trinity Church.
