Our Minister is Rev Andrew Kerr. Andrew trained as a surgeon before his call to Gospel ministry. Having served as a pastor of three congregations of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland from 2002, he has been the teaching elder of Knockbracken Reformed Presbyterian Church in Belfast since 2007. He is the Professor of Old Testament Languages and Literature at the Reformed Theological College. His is married to Hazel, a part-time family doctor, and has three children Rebekah, Paul and Andrew Jnr. His interests include languages, rugby, cricket, running and skiing.

Our Session, consisting of a number of ruling elders, jointly share the spiritual oversight of the congregation with the pastor. The Elders are elected from the membership of the congregation who fulfil the requirements of 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.

The Elders endeavour to visit each family at least once per year and more frequently as required. They lead prayer meetings and teach within the congregation at various levels. Meetings of Session are scheduled six times each year, more frequently as necessary, and in order to oversee the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
