Our people

Clergy

Our interim Priest-in-charge is the Rev Sheila Cameron. Sheila was brought up in Newburgh, and studied English at St Andrews University and Theology at London University. Her work as a qualified librarian took her eventually to Cambridge, where she served as a Lay Reader in Great St Mary’s before being ordained as a part-time curate in a north Cambridge parish. After retirement from her day job, Sheila moved back north and served for a short while as Priest-in-Charge at St Anne’s Dunbar. A second retirement found Sheila as team priest in a vast rural benefice in Northumberland and completing training as a spiritual director in the Ignatian tradition. Sheila is now delighted to have “found her way home” to our diocese, and we are equally delighted that she has agreed to serve as our interim Priest-in-charge.

Vestry

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, Sue Masson, and Alan Taylor

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.

Administration

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