Christian Aid boss elected as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland

by Marcus Jones

Rt Rev Sally Foster-Fulton, head of Christian Aid in Scotland since 2016, has been elected as the next Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

The 59-year-old expressed her gratitude and excitement for representing the Kirk as an ambassador for the next 12 months, both domestically and abroad.

Born in South Carolina, USA, 59-year-old Mrs Foster-Fulton was ordained as a Church of Scotland minister in 1999 and has held various roles within the church.

Her experiences span from parishes to hospital chaplaincy and serving as convener of the former Church and Society Council between 2012-16.

In her new role she will act as ambassador for the Kirk over the next 12 months.

Speaking about her appointment, Mrs Foster-Fulton said: “I am beyond humbled, inexpressibly honoured and more than a wee bit excited to be your Moderator.

“Thank you for your trust, your prayers and the commitment you share to be part of the body of Christ in this place.”

Married to a fellow Church of Scotland minister, Mrs Foster-Fulton lives in Glasgow with their two adult daughters.

She takes over from Very Rev Dr Iain Greenshields who completes his year in office.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
