Hello! I am Alexander Macdonald, an 18 year old from the Isle of Lewis in Scotland.
Having recently left the island I have chosen to carry out a Preacher Training Course with Cornhill Scotland, and will be volunteering as a ministry apprentice at Cumbernauld Free Church. The church is in South Carbrain where I will also be living, and I intend to engage and integrate with the local community as much as possible.
This is an exciting opportunity for me and I am looking forward to beginning my apprenticeship and studies in September. However, without student funding I will have to cover tuition fees, rent and living costs myself. Whilst a part time job is an option, it won't cover all expenses and would reduce the time I wish to give to my role as a volunteer ministry apprentice at the church, my studies and the local community. It is for this reason I am asking for any generous help you may be able to provide to allow me to make the most of this opportunity.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and feel free to share the page and help spread the word.
