Alistair was raised in Wales and lived there until he was 12. He then moved to Romania for 6 years then to Austria for 3. He met his wife Sabine in Austria and they got married in 2013 just before moving to Edinburgh. They moved to Edinburgh to study and for Alistair to be able to train for future ministry that he felt God was calling him to. Part of this training involves the two year Ministry Associate Program at Chalmers Church and studies at Edinburgh Theological Seminary which Alistair is currently undertaking.
