Let’s take the next step together

My name is Rhona, and I have been the minister at Tron St Mary’s since 22nd of January 2015.  This is my first church that I am a minister in.   I started training for the Ministry in 2010, following a yearlong enquiry process which started in 2009.  Before this, I was a reader for the church of Scotland, attached to Falkirk Churches together youth project, working for the local council in Camelon (or Kamelin to the local kids).  I was set apart to be a reader in 2007 following three years of training.  A reader for the church of Scotland is someone who gives their time for free, participates in worship and other duties and would normally be part of a team, where I was based with a youth project.

My professional career before I became a minister started when I was 13 with an Egg and bacon round in the local area.  At 14 I delivered the local advertiser, and then at 15 I worked in Mathieson’s the bakery café in Falkirk town center.  When I was 16, I got a jog with Tesco on the checkouts to support me through college and university.  I graduated with a HND in Business Information management in 1998, then in 2000 with my BA in Information Management (not bad for someone who left school with two standard grades and has dyslexia).

I then took a break from Tesco to work for Thomas Cook then back to Tesco as a trainee department manager.  I worked in different roles and different stores; from Musselbrough to Cumberanuald, from checkouts to compliance manager.

All the training and working life has given me the skills that I know use in the life of a minister at Tron St Mary’s.  I enjoy working with the team at TSM, with the paid support team, the Elders and the congregation.  Each week something different happens here or something new happens and it has been a real blessing to be here with people of Balornorck and Barmulloch.

Welcome to Tron St. Mary’s

Tron St Mary’s Parish Church opened in its present building in 1965 and has been serving the surrounding communities ever since! In 2013 it was decided that community projects would be developed in the premises to encourage integration, socialising, support and inclusiveness.

Over the years that followed there have been huge developments and changes made to benefit the local community including building improvements, the development of the community garden, partnership programmes with the local schools and nurseries as well as a vast range of groups and activities held both in Tron St Mary’s and out with the project.

I love that the girls were so excited to go and learn about God and his love for us. This year each day we spent time during the day trying to figure out what bible story would be taught to go with theme of the day.

Greg Ross,

I enjoyed working with all of the kids. I loved watching how connected they were to the messages being presented to them and how much fun they were having while learning.

I was made to feel very welcome on my first visit and it convinced me to keep coming back. This church is a very special place.
