Our Team


Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” – 

Isaiah 6:8

Rev. Betsi Thane originates from Poland. 

She studied at the University of Nikolaus Copernicus in Torun where she obtained her Masters in Education.

Later Betsi moved to Germany to learn the language. There she met Markus, got married and after a few years gave birth to their daughter Sara Michelle.

The next station was Waco, Texas in the USA where they moved to in 2007. Two years later the family lived in Scotland. There Betsi was working as childcare practitioner but also as teacher for Polish and German to adults.

When Betsi discerned her call she started her Theology studies at the University of Glasgow and began her training as a Minister of Word and Sacrament. 

She graduated in June 2018 and finished her probation at West Kilbride Parish Church in November 2019.

Betsi had been ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in January 2020 and moved to Malta end of February 2020.

Please note that our Friday 

is the day off for our Minister.

Kirk Session

We have our own constitution embracing both parent churches. We have a leadership team of elders called the Kirk Session.  Elders – men and women – are ordained for life, but they serve on our Kirk Session for periods of five to ten years.  

Each one has a particular area of responsibility – such as finance,  mission,  communications and so on. 

The current team consists of 6 people plus the Minister as Moderator.
