Alasdair Paine is senior minister among a large team of colleagues in the church of Great St Andrew's, Cambridge- the university city in which he was first challenged as a student at trinity College by the message of Christ. After graduate studies in Colorado USA, he returned to England, and to the staff of Eton College, where he became Head of the Geography Department. With all the necessary qualifications for a strong academic future, Alasdair neverthless sensed a call to public Christian ministry, and trained for ordination at Oxford's Wycliffe Hall. From there he became assistant minister at St Leonard's Church Exeter, and later was to lead the vigorous work of Christ Church, Westbourne- until 2011, when Cambridge claimed him back to one of the most influential university cities in the world. He and his wife Rachel have a family of three. Alasdair enjoys family, friends, reading and travel- and climbing the Scottish mountains.
