David Williams on behalf of Church of Scotland said “The church is excited to celebrate 950 years of continuous worship on the site and the opportunity, over the year, to recognise the substantial contribution Margaret made to society and our nation’s heritage.”
Plans are also in hand to mark the 100th anniversary of the Alhambra.
The venue first opened its doors on August 22, 1922 for a screening of the silent film Over the Hill.
It then became a bingo hall before being brought back into use as Fife’s biggest live venue.
Claire Jones, on behalf of the Alhambra Theatre Trust, said "We are thrilled to reach such a momentous milestone, with the venue’s centenary year.
“ As we celebrate being Dunfermline’s oldest place of entertainment, and having entertained the public for 100 years, the Alhambra Theatre Trust look excitedly ahead to the future.’
