Kingsview Christian Centre | Inverness

Kingsview Christian Centre

Our congregation gathers from many parts of Inverness, and beyond, for worship on Sundays. There is a Bible study and prayer meeting on Wednesday evenings at church and throughout the week several house groups meet for fellowship. Provisions are made at Kingsview for families, including a crèche, Sunday school and youth fellowship. There is a regular parent and toddlers group and the church frequently hosts youth camps. The church also provides ministry to several nursing homes in the city and local care homes make use of the building throughout the week.

Kingsview is located in the Kinmylies area of Inverness, at the base of Craig Phadrig, one of the city’s historic sites. This location means the church enjoys a marvellous view overlooking the city. Previously the church building was a bar/diner and an Indian restaurant. It was purchased after much prayer and officially opened in 2002. An extension incorporating a church hall was completed in 2006.

At Kingsview we worship God and by his grace seek to build his people up in the faith and extend the good news of Christ to those who do not yet know him as their Lord and saviour.

Minister

Revd Dr John Ferguson

John Ferguson grew up in Glasgow where he attended Hyndland Secondary School. After studying philosophy at the University of Aberdeen he spent 4 years in the United States and graduated with the MDiv degree from Westminster Theological Seminary. During that time he gained invaluable experience as an intern at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.

After graduating John continued his studies and returned to the University of Aberdeen to study for a PhD. His dissertation was on the atonement, a subject that is central to gospel ministry. During his second spell in Aberdeen he met his wife Louise. He enjoys playing and watching sports including football and golf and spending time with friends and family.

During his studies at Aberdeen John was contacted about the possibility of becoming the minister at Kingsview and after receiving a call from the congregation he was ordained and inducted in May 2011.

Evangelist

Rev. Donald Macaskill

Donald Macaskill was born in Glasgow, but from the age of nine moved to Inverness and was there for thirty-five years. After schooling, he served his apprenticeship as a printing compositor in the local newspaper, the Inverness Courier. In 1964 he went into the printing business with his twin brother (the former and now retired Stornoway minister), in Inverness until 1981. He began studying for the ministry with the Open University in the late ‘70s and graduated with a BA degree in 1981.

Don prefers the city to the country and was delighted when he was asked to become the pastor of the newly formulated APC outreach congregation in Dundee. He was ordained as pastor there in December 1985. He is married to Margo and they have two children, Ross who is married in Glasgow with three children, and Marlene who is married in Bonar Bridge with two children.

Having retired from his charge in Dundee in 2016, he is now employed as a part-time evangelist in his Inverness congregation in Kingsview Inverness and is engaged each week in preaching the gospel throughout the highlands. Don relaxes by visiting his family and reading biographies and theology, and watching football on TV.
