Assistant Curate appointed as Rector of St John’s Forfar

Our assistant curate, Rev Elaine Garman, has announced that she is to be the Rector of St John the Evangelist, Forfar. She will remain with Holy Trinity until early summer in order to finish her curacy before re-locating to the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane to take up her new post.

She will be sorely missed both here at Dunoon and at Rothesay, but we wish her well as she moves forward on her own pilgrimage.

Our prayers and best wishes for both Elaine and Gordon.


[Quote from Rev Elaine Garman’s post in Facebook –

I am very happy to announce that I have been selected as the next Rector of St John the Evangelist, Forfar! I am returning to the East of Scotland after many a year….Lots of discussion still to be had with Gordon as to sailing grounds and the like. The move will be after the finish of my curacy in late June. Institution date to follow….We will be sad to leave Bute and Argyll and particularly the congregations of St Paul’s, Rothesay and Holy Trinity, Dunoon but travel is still possible (snow allowing!).]
