A new dawn in Dunfermline
The Institution of the Very Revd. Kenny Rathband will take place on the 3rd Nov at 11am at Holy Trinity Dunfermline.
Kenny will be Instituted as Rector of Holy Trinity Dunfermline and St Margarets Rosyth on the 3rd November with his first service taking place on the 4th. You are all welcome to join us as this new dawn breaks over our part of Fife. A large crowd is expected so come along early to share this momentous day.
A huge thanks to everyone who took part in our sea Sunday services and those who contributed. We received a lovely letter of thanks to our young church especially who wrote cards to the sailors.
Another huge thanks was given to all those who knitted hats and scarfs that genuinely make a huge difference and keep those sailing in the worst of weathers, to feed and clothe us, just that little bit warmer. A great effort by all involved!
After long discussions with +Kevin the Vestry interviewed for the post of Rector for Holy Trinity Dunfermline and St Margaret’s Rosyth.
The vestries interviewed and selected a new incumbent, we are pleased to tell you that The Very Rev Kenny Rathband has accepted the charge of Rector. Please Pray for Kenny and his wife Ruth as they look forward to a new chapter with us.
Many of us may know Kenny from his role as Dean in our Diocese. A working agreement between the churches will be put in place later in the year once the new incumbent is in post.
We also would like to think and pray for our brothers and sisters in the congregations of ABC Saints. This joint incumbency represents the Scottish Episcopal Churches in Alyth (St Ninian’s), Blairgowrie (St Catharine’s), Coupar Angus (St Anne’s) and Ballintuim (St Michael’s). We pray for them all as they go into vacancy themselves and we hope they look forward to a new chapter in their spiritual life.
