David Buchan

David joined the Board of Trustees in July 2021, following the merger with Fegans; he had been Treasurer of Fegans since 2019. David is married with three grown up children. He serves as one of the children’s team at his local church in Redhill and he took up a new position as Financial Controller for Wycliffe Bible Translators in March 2022.

David trained as an accountant with the National Audit Office and his subsequent career was in central Government. He was Group Financial Controller of the Department for Transport before taking early retirement from the Civil Service.

Since then, he has developed an interest in finance and management within the charity sector through a number of trustee roles, and in 2020 he studied for the Diploma in Charity Accounting and Financial Management at the City Business School. He went on to complete a Masters degree in 2021.

David is looking forward to seeing through the impact of the merger with Fegans, as Spurgeons develops its strategy, and builds on the Christian basis which has underpinned both organisations.
