Our Minister

My name is Rev  Maggie Hunt and I am the minister at St Margaret's.  

You will usually find me around the church buildings where I base myself.  I work from the vestry so if you see my lightt on, it means the kettle is already on and I would be happy to see you.

I moved to Forfar from South East Edinburgh with my husband Gareth and daughter Amy in December 2014.  We were made so very welcome by everyone and have settled in well – so well that it doesn't seem like 18months – and sometimes as though we've never been anywhere else.

At University – both as a teenager and again in my thirties, training for the ministry, I have been fascinated and have researched how the Scots language in its many modern dialects, is used to share stories and add a sense of 'locality' to storytelling and narrative writing.  I am particularly interested in how telling Bible stories and faith stories in Scots dialects can open up new understandings and new expressions for those who engage with them.

Before starting my training for the Ministry. I worked for charities for most of my career including Clubs for Young People Scotland, CrossReach (Church of Scotland Social Care council) and SACRO.

When I find time, I enjoy a wide and varied social life mainly revolving around spending quality time with my family and friends - normally round a dinner table sharing a meal and good conversation.  I enjoy country walks, cookery (although I am not very good!) and organising fun events for charity and church. I also enjoy singing, photo journaling and art.
