Rev Margaret Michie

Ordained Local Minister  

At an early age Margaret was involved in youth work in her home church in Motherwell and Summer Mission throughout Scotland.  A move then came to Markinch, then Kinross. A two-year course in Training for Learning and Service led to further studies for Readership and attachment with Kinross Parish Church. Margaret was ordained as a Local Minister in 2013. Margaret is married to Bill and she has four children, 14 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Interests include music, reading, children and making soup! 

Jaffrey Weir 

Session Clerk

Jaffrey came to Christ after attending seaside missions run by Scripture Union during family holidays. The seed of our Lord was planted but he endeavoured to ignore it. Jaffrey knew he was always going to marry a daughter of the manse and it was only when he met Kathleen, a daughter of the manse, that he came back to Christ. He joined Kinross Parish Church 30 years ago and then became an Elder, becoming Session Clerk in 2009. Kathleen and Jaffrey have three children and three grandchildren and feel blessed to be part of the Kinross-shire community.
