The team at Aberdeen Elim

Find out more about our Pastor and the Team at Aberdeen Elim

Tom Skelton

Tom is our Pastor at Aberdeen Elim. He has been married to Lauren since 2007, and they have three kids. Shanon is 13, Amy is 5 and Ben is 3. Together they moved to Aberdeen in May 2014 from Ledbury where they had been leading a church plant while working part time in various jobs. They originally come from the same place that God does… Northern Ireland, which is handy as they therefore have the same accent as God too. Tom is studying a Masters at St Andrews, while Lauren works for the University of Aberdeen part time.

Tayo Olusanya

Tayo came to Aberdeen from Nigeria in 2003, when he took up a position with a local oil company. He now runs his own business working in providing Technical HSE Consultancy for oil companies. He is married to Tope and has two beautiful children. His favourite thing about Aberdeen is the serenity it offers. He has been a leader in the church since 2010, and is the Finance Officer for the church.

Adeniyi Alade

 I am married and blessed with 3 children and I am a social worker and counselling therapist by profession. I work with a national children’s charity in Aberdeen.

Elim Aberdeen has been our home and family since arriving in Aberdeen 9 years ago and we have been blessed by God through the people we have been privileged to meet and serve there.

Carol Gollop

Has been a leader in the church for several years. She first came to Aberdeen in 1984. She did such a great job bringing up her three lovely children that she has been promoted to a grandparent. She has loads of fun with Kevin (12), Ben (10), Katie (9) and Matthew (7). She has been a teacher in Inverurie Academy for over twenty years, and has had the joy of seeing students flourish as they study religion, morality and philosophy. Carol heads up the mission team in the church who have just returned from an amazing trip to support the work of Comfort Congo and Rwanda.
