We are delighted to announce the induction of Dr Alistair Wilson to the position of lecturer in New Testament and Mission at Edinburgh Theological Seminary (ETS).

He was then appointed to Dumisani Theological Institute, King William’s Town, South Africa, becoming Principal in 2006. Alistair returned to Highland Theological College in January 2015, where he has taught until the present time.
ETS Principal Iver Martin, who was delighted by the new appointment, said, "Dr Wilson possesses the qualifications and experience which ETS currently needs in the development of our new Missions Centre. We are thrilled that he has accepted this appointment and look forward to the important contribution he will make to the Seminary as a member of our full time teaching staff."
