Appointment of new Co-Chair of Trustees

Friday 1st September 2023

The Boys’ Brigade is pleased to announce that Very Rev Dr Martin Fair has been co-opted as Co-Chair of our Trustee Board, the Brigade Executive.

Raised in Glasgow, Martin studied at both Strathclyde and Glasgow Universities and later at Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. His 31 years of parish ministry were spent in Arbroath during which time his primary focus was on transforming the congregation into an outward-looking family, committed to serving and addressing needs in the wider community and world.

Martin served as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland (2020-2021) and now works in a national Church role focusing on recruiting and training the leaders of tomorrow.

Martin commented: “I’m delighted and sensing the privilege that is mine to be joining the Brigade Executive as Co-Chair and hope that I’ll be able to contribute positively to the work of the Executive and, ultimately, to the life of the Brigade itself in the time ahead.”

“But first and foremost I’m looking forward to getting to know people and to listening and learning and to joining what is already a great team. Here’s to exciting days ahead!”

Jonathan Eales, Chief Executive of The Boys’ Brigade, added: “I am delighted that we are welcoming Martin to the Brigade Executive as Co-Chair. He brings so much experience and understanding of both the challenges and opportunities for the Church today, which is so important for us as a Christian youth organisation.”
