History – New Trinity Church

In 1993 a union took place between the congregations of Erskine Church and Landsborough & Trinity Church  to form what became the New Trinity Church, but still using the former Erskine Church buildings. A new minister was sought and the Rev Sandy McCallum was inducted in 1994 and proved to be a very popular minister.

When Rev McCallum retired in March 2005, the congregation was thrown into another vacancy which Presbytery decided should become a reviewable tenure, and after a short vacancy Rev Elaine McKinnon was inducted to the charge on 6 April 2006. Rev McKinnon held office until translating to Dumbarton West Kirk in 2010. The congregation were held in a continuing vacancy until Rev Brian Oxburgh of Saltcoats St Cuthbert’s Church translated to Tayport, Fife in 2011 thus starting readjustment proceedings under the then Presbytery Plan.
