Who’s Who

Rev Alan D Reid MA BD 

Minister

Alan was called to the ministry when he was 15. After studying French and Music at St Andrews, he undertook training at New College, Edinburgh, and served as probationer in the Howe of Fife before being called to Newcastleton in 1989. In 2003 the parish of Canonbie was added to his charge there. Alan was called to Kinross in 2009. Married to Christine since 1991 they have two sons and a collie dog. 

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! 

Rev Kathleen (Kathy) Dain

Assistant Minister  

Kathy is an ordained minister within the Presbyterian Church USA. She arrived in Kinross in March 2020 and is enjoying her one-year familiarisation for admission into the Church of Scotland. Kathy holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism from Central Michigan University and a Master of Divinity from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. She is a former private pilot and avid photographer. Kathy can frequently be spotted out walking with her little dog, Riley. 

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 a grandchild and feel blessed to be part of the Kinross-shire community.
