Alan joined the Soul Marks trustees in 2006. Having encountered Carol’s work at the Carberry Festival. He was then a humble IT man, but has since retrained and ascended or descended (depending on your point of view) to the dizzy heights of a Church of Scotland parish minister in Glenrothes, Fife.
Angie has been a very faithful trustee having been with us from our beginnings in 2003 (though the meetings began in 2002 and Angie was at the first). She took a break when she retired from her job as a pastoral counselor, but we love her so much we convinced her to rejoin us in 2013 and are very grateful for her quiet, wise and reflective presence.
Geoffrey joined the board in 2012. He worked for 18 years as an actor, specialising in physical theatre and mime. He then became director of the Centre for Christian Communication at St. Johns College, University of Durham, before coming to study for his PhD at the School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh, where he is is now an Honorary Fellow. He lectures there part-time, and still does the occasional mime… he has been known to combine the two!
