ActivityBarnhill St Margaret's church began as a chapel of ease established on 8 June 1884. Initially the congregation met in an iron church formerly used by Craigiebuckler church in Aberdeen and by St Luke's Free Church, Broughty Ferry. This 'Tin Kirk' was used as a church hall following the opening of Barnhill St Margaret's church in 1895.The parish of St Margaret was disjoined from Monifieth on 8 March 1907. Enlargements were made in 1932, 1979, and the building is B-Listed. Barnhill St Margaret's church is in the Presbytery of Dundee, which was in the synod of Angus and Mearns until the abolition of synods in 1992.See 'The Kirks of Dundee Presbytery, 1558-1999', by Ian McCraw, (Friends of Dundee City Archives Publication 3, 2000).
