Welcome

On Sunday 27 September you are invited to join the congregation at Holy Trinity at 11.00am – as in this post – for a streamed Service of the Word led by David Dean, the Rector’s warden.

At 9.30am on Sunday 4 October, the Very Rev Kenny Rathband will celebrate Eucharist at St Margaret’s, the first of a series of fortnightly services, alternating with Methodist Morning Worship. Note that these will be short services (about 35 minutes) with no congregational singing, and you will need to wear face coverings during the service – more details about what to expect in Kenny’s letter of 18 September and in this post, which also links to an explanatory video produced by the Province.

Please note that, for the time being, as we work through the practicalities of worshipping together in a COVID-secure way, we’re asking everyone who intends to attend worship in person at St Margaret’s to email Sandra Young by 5:00pm on the Saturday before.

For those unable to be with us in person, and for all on Sundays when there is no St Margaret’s service, the Holy Trinity 11.00am Eucharist will continue to be streamed – as in this post –and there are other resources for worship at home linked to our Resources page.

As always, don’t forget to light a candle at 7.00pm, and pray together with other Christians in Scotland, using the prayer specially written for each Sunday by Action of Churches Together in Scotland, which you can download at this link.


Welcome to St Margaret’s, Rosyth. We are part of the Scottish Episcopal Church, which shares a long history of Christian worship from the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland, and which is part of the world-wide family of churches that make up the Anglican Communion. Our present church was formed in January 1996 from the congregation of St Margaret’s Anglican Church, when the Royal Navy withdrew from Rosyth and we were invited to worship in Rosyth Methodist Church, with whom we are now in a Local Ecumenical Partnership (follow the link to “Our partners”).


At St Margaret’s we are a friendly and caring congregation, and the vigour of our hymn-singing belies our small numbers, as David Chillingworth (until 2017 our Primus) commented on in his blog. We are aware that ours is a living tradition continually moving forward, and we are looking for you to join us and play a part.

There is a place for everyone and we would like people of all ages to feel part of our Sunday worship. Our main form of worship is Holy Communion using the 1982 ‘Blue Book’ Scottish Liturgy, sung to a setting appropriate to the season. At other times there are meetings of groups to which our members belong. Our aim is to ensure you quickly feel at home but also find sufficient challenges to move forwards in your spiritual life.


For details of what’s on, click this link, or use the “What’s on” tab. You’ll find us in Queensferry Road at the junction with Woodside Avenue, and 5 minutes walk from Rosyth Station. More details at the “Where we are” tab. We welcome everyone: we have a loop system for your hearing aid, access for buggies and wheelchairs, disabled toilets, and large print versions of the liturgy books.


Issues of “Contact”, the newsletter of the partnership, can be viewed on-line or downloaded from links on the Our magazine page; our Archive page has links to separate pages with information on previous significant events.
