Welcome to The Parish of Newbattle
We're in the middle of redeveloping our site, so we only have this holding site available at the moment.
Introducing Rev Gayle Taylor
Gayle is currently Associate Minister at Colinton Parish with responsibility for building community engagement with a focus on children and youth. She started with them in 2009. From 2017 Gayle was part-time at Colinton and alongside that was involved three days a week in developing a new bereavement service based at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow for parents who have lost a child or a baby.
From 1999 to 2009 Minister she was parish minister at Bishopton Parish Church in Glasgow, so has a wide range of experience to bring to the parish at Newbattle.
