The Rev Jimmy King
I was born and brought up in Leith, Edinburgh. My first contact with the church and the gospel came at the age of 17, through an invitation to an evangelistic service at Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh. I was confronted with the gospel during the service; there was an immediate conviction both of my own sinful condition and my need of Christ as my personal Saviour, which finally led me to repentance and trust in Christ. Prior to becoming a Baptist minister, I spent five years in Social work; and three years working in Christian mission with young people.
I have served in several churches during my ministry, including churches in Scotland and England. I became the pastor of Alloa Baptist Church in 2008.
My wife and I have three growing boys; the eldest has almost finished university, the second is about to go to university and the third is entering the final two years of school.
I look forward to welcoming you to Alloa Baptist Church.
