Rev. Jonathan C. Fleming MA BD
Jonathan has been Minister of Cumbrae linked with Largs: St John’s Church since October 2017. This is his second charge, having been the Minister of Erskine Parish Church as well as the Padre to ERSKINE.
Originally from Bearsden and Milngavie, Jonathan attended The Glasgow Academy, before studying French Language and Literature, followed by Information Management and Preservation at The University of Glasgow.
Due to family circumstances, Jonathan joined his family-run food wholesale business in 2005. Having studied for five years for his MA, it came as a shock when he obtained a forklift licence in 80 minutes and used it a lot more than his first degree!
Feeling God’s call to Ministry, Jonathan returned to The University of Glasgow in 2008 to study Divinity, graduating in 2011.
Ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in November 2012, Jonathan lives in Largs with his wife Karyn and his two daughters, Rachel and Hollie.
In 2015, Jonathan was awarded the title of ‘Citizen of the Year’ by Erskine Community Council for his leadership of the community work undertaken by Erskine Parish Church. He is a contributor to Spill the Beans and regularly contributes to the Weekly Worship resources for the Church of Scotland.
When he is not spending time with the family, Jonathan loves writing, playing and listening to music as well as photography, cooking and tinkering with computers.
