Born in Belfast, I studied in Aberdeen and moved to Carlisle in 2013. I’m married to Claire and have a son called Zach and a daughter called Zoe. I love books, movies and cooking.

My great hope and prayer for Hebron is that the whole church would experience an increasingly deep relationship with God. I am convinced that God has given us tools to make space for our relationships with him to grow, and I’m passionate about teaching the church and giving the church the opportunity to develop their skill at using them all, so that we will live our lives more and more as acts of worship to the God that we love.

Brian Downie

Born in Glasgow, I moved to Carlisle in 2007 and started to work at Hebron in May 2013. I’m married to Julie and we have two daughters, Lily and Mia. I love running and karate and tolerate DIY!

I want to care for people and for people to be cared for. To be able to offer them the emotional, social and spiritual support they may need. It is one of the best ways we serve God and others – by providing people with the opportunities to care and be cared for, and skills to care effectively for one and another. My hope is that the Church will be known as a place of refuge. A safe place where the vulnerable and the certain, the fragile and the sure can come together.

Caroline Hetherington

I was born in Stockport and moved to Carlisle in 2008 with my husband Pete. We have two children, Isaac and Finley. I work for a charity called Safe Families for Children. I enjoy sewing, baking, getting out into the Lake District and walking in the fells.

I long to see more people from across our city and beyond come to know Jesus, for them to know his love and grace in their lives and the freedom He can bring. I want to help to create spaces for us to connect and build meaningful relationships, and my hope is that by doing this we will grow in a deeper understanding of each other and of those around us.

Donald Mackay

I am husband to Elspeth, and Dad to Seona and Heather. By day I’m responsible for the delivery and operation of Renewable Energy projects. Originally from the North of Scotland, I’ve lived in Carlisle for 32 years and have been involved at Hebron for 30 years. I relax by spending time with family, cycling, mountain biking, running, reading or dog walking.

In our vision, we state that we are open-hearted for our church family, and broken-hearted for our community and the world around us. Caring for and serving the community and city outside of our building and to touch them with Christ’s love is our privilege. I want to be able to help us reach into the needs of our city, as we are able to; to work with the opportunities we have, and the agencies that serve in the city; to reach out and use the gifts and resources we have; to practice love, care and hospitality; and to share and demonstrate practically the certain hope that the good news of Jesus’ love brings.

Gordon Younger

Born in Carlisle, I have lived and worked in the area all my life. I am a qualified accountant and run a computer consultancy business. I am married to Sheila and we have two children and five grandchildren. Spending time with our family is something I enjoy, and occasionally, DIY, reading, and wandering off for a day in the Lake District.

I feel keenly that good administration within Hebron Church is essential as it enables all our different ministries to function efficiently and effectively as we all seek to serve God. As well as chairing our Church Leader’s meetings, I work closely with our Charity Trustees and our Property Trustees to ensure good and clear communication between us, so that together we can enable Hebron to deliver our church vision.
