Our people


Our Priest-in-charge is the Very Rev Kenny Rathband. Kenny was formally instituted as Holy Trinity’s Rector and Priest-in-charge at St Margaret’s by Bishop Ian at a service on 3 November 2018.

Kenny’s ministry has a wider perspective than the local church as he is also Dean of the Diocese of St Andrew’s, Dunkeld and Dunblane.

Before moving to Dunfermline, Kenny was for 27 years Rector of St Catharine’s, Blairgowrie, St Anne’s, Coupar Angus and St Ninian’s, Alyth, and also had pastoral care of St Michael’s, Ballintuim. You can read more about Kenny in the interview with the Editor in Issue 100 of Contact!


The responsibility of running the church resides jointly with the Priest-in-charge and the Vestry, who work closely together.

The Vestry is a volunteer body elected by the church members at the annual general meeting, held in November. They are also the Trustees of the church.

The Vestry consists of:

Chairman – The Priest-in-charge

Secretary – Sandra Young

Treasurer – Gordon Pryde

Members – Sue Forman, Erica Lock, Myra Tarr, Alan Taylor and Lesley Yellowlees

Lay Representative – Valerie Leslie

[Alternate Lay Representative – Erica Lock]

Methodist representative – Dave Ward

Two Vestry members represent St Margaret’s on the Methodist Property Committee, and one on the Methodist Church Council.

Vestry and the Methodist Church Council meet jointly twice a year.

Lay Ministry

Members of both churches lead our Sunday@Six worship, four members are licenced to administer the chalice during communion, and two members are licenced to administer home communion.

Some members assist in administering communion during the joint service, while others are part of the communion stewards’ team.


Gordon Pryde administers the Gift Aid scheme; Jan Benvie is our Protection of Vulnerable Groups Co‑ordinator.
