Doug and Fiona live in the west side of Edinburgh within easy reach of the city centre and countryside. Doug works as a freelance design engineer and Fiona divides her work life between Edinburgh City Mission and oil painting. They enjoy friendships, travel, skiing, cycling, good food, art, photography, and music. They have been Christians since their teenage years and their faith shapes their lives.
Doug has been involved in worship at church for many years and they have also led homegroups and assisted on Christianity Explored and Alpha courses. They attend St Paul’s and St George’s church in Edinburgh where Fiona heads up the hospitality team inspired by her love of cooking.
Doug has been involved with Christian holidays for several years and values the privilege of teaching God’s word and leading worship.
Before moving to Edinburgh, Fiona worked for many years in full-time Christian ministry, including radio broadcasting, preparing young people for short-term overseas missions with Oasis Trust, and co-ordinating relief aid to Serbia and Bosnia during the 1990’s. She has also led a number of summer and winter Christian holidays to Europe.
