Rev. Gillian Weighton
Pastor & Head of Staff
In both Ayr and Bridge of Allan, Pastor Gillian also served as a University and Hospital Chaplain, served on General Assembly Committees and served as spiritual adviser and chaplain at conference for newly ordained pastors. In 2013 Pastor Gillian heard the call to serve at First Presbyterian Church, Racine, WI. Gillian had served this congregation on a pulpit exchange in 2004 and returned in 2013. Over the course of her ministry Gillian has engaged in 18 pulpit exchanges across the United States and Canada. When asked to describe the ministry setting to which she believes God is calling her, Gillian replied, “My sense of call is toward a ministry setting where I can serve a church that understands itself as a family of faith. A place where all are welcome, where community is important, and where everyone is included and involved.”
Her training and background was in Christian education, having served three churches in an educational capacity. She has also done library work in public and special libraries, and she spent a few years working for the Presbytery, mainly in the office at Makemie Woods.
In addition to library and church work, she’s been a bookkeeper, desk clerk, and has worked in several capacities in her parents’ music store. She even worked as a professional puppeteer one year. She has two grown sons and a house full of projects, craft supplies, and puppets.
