Leadership Team

The Living Rooms is overseen by a group of Trustees who are passionate that the love of God, and the Good News about Jesus is lived out and spread abroad in Inverbervie and beyond. They all have many years of experience but are very young at heart!

Ken and Vee Dickson


Ken and Veronica (Vee) Dickson

Ken and Vee Dickson both grew up in Kilmarnock and became Christians at that time although they came from very different backgrounds. After they married the Lord led them to Inverbervie and subsequently called them to birth The Living Rooms Christian Fellowship of which they are both trustees. They have four grown up children and three grandchildren.

Ken has overall responsibility for Bible Teaching and Pastoral Care. He also carries out general maintenance on the building and equipment. Vee has a passion for prayer and Bible reading and shares Ken’s longing to see people in the community coming to know Jesus as their Saviour and for those who are sick to experience healing in Jesus name.
