Bill Thompson : Edinburgh

Ben Thompson

Bill lives in East Calder (outside Edinburgh) and has been married to Marion for 35 years. They have a son and daughter, both of whom are married and have families of their own.

Bill became a Christian 40 years ago, as a result of Marion’s witness. He worked for 25 years in social work, half  of which were as a Senior Residential Manager. Bill worked for 13 years as a full time Pastoral Assistant with a large church on the south west side of Edinburgh. During this time his role included pastoral care within the church and community, establishing a vibrant men’s ministry, and enabling individuals to participate in oversees mission trips. Bill stepped down from this role in July 2015.   

Both Bill and Marion enjoy walking, and spending time with their grandchildren.

His passion for men to be all they can be in God has grown and developed over the years and this role with CVM is one he is very much looking forward to.
