A notable minister of the parish was Tom Allan, a key figure in the Scottish evangelical movement of the mid-20th century. Since then, a succession of ministers have built up the church by carefully explaining the life-changing word of God. So today the congregation is noted for being on the evangelical wing of the Church, and is looking to develop its mission and activities for the current generation. The current minister is the Rev Dr William J. U. Philip.
