MEET OUR TEAM

Meet the core team of people who lead and develop the ministries at HCC

David and Eleanor Seel

Lead Pastor

In October 2021, after a period of working alongside Allan, David Seel was recognised as Lead Pastor of the church as it transitioned into a new season of leadership. David is passionate about sharing his faith with others so that they can encounter the life changing power of the Gospel and enter into a life saving relationship with God through Jesus.

As well as studying Youthwork and Theology in Glasgow he has experience of leading street ministries and preaching the Gospel in many different settings. His heart is to see a generation of young people rise up in faith and become a positive influence in the communities they find themselves in, whilst learning from others.

David's preaching style is conversational, seeking to encourage and challenge people to find their purpose in Christ and bring about life change. David currently works as a Principal Teacher of Pastoral Care in High School. He has been married to Eleanor, a college lecturer, since 2003 and they have 4 children - all girls!

Having been involved in leading several churches in Edinburgh, in 2008 Allan and Anne moved to Livingston and in the following year they came to HCC to be part of the leadership team.  In 2019, Allan took on the role of Lead Pastor of the church and since the Summer 2020, he has worked alongside David in preparation for a change of leadership roles in October 2021.
