By 1890, the congregation had outgrown Trinity Chapel and it was felt that a new, larger church was desirable. Permission was sought and duly granted by Bishop Wordsworth in September 1889.

Plans for the new church were drawn up by Dr Rowand Anderson of Edinburgh and were later approved by the Building Committee, comprising the Reverend J. Nairne Imrie, Mr Erskine Beveridge and the Earl of Elgin.

The font and organ were brought from the old Chapel, which appears to have been vacated before the new Church was ready.

Holy Trinity Dunfermline, on the corner of Viewfield Terrace and the East Port, was consecrated in September 1891, again by the Bishop of Glasgow in the absence of the Bishop of St Andrews.
