Birth, marriage and death certificates

Abbotshall Church does not hold any historical records. ScotlandsPeople at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk is the official online source of parish registers, civil registration, census records and wills and testaments for Scotland. The website is a partnership between the General Register Office for Scotland (GROS), the National Archives of Scotland (NAS), the Court of the Lord Lyon and Scotland On Line.

The burial records for our graveyard are no longer held at the church. The graveyard is currently managed by Fife Council (the successor authority of Kirkcaldy Burgh who took over responsibility for the graveyard in the 1950’s). For information about these record please contact Fife Council at the Burials office, The Lodge, Kirkcaldy Crematorium.

ScotlandsPeople is one of the world’s largest resources of genealogical information and one of the largest single information resources on the web. With almost 80 million records to access it provides an index of Scottish births, marriages and deaths from 1538, census data, and an index search of wills and testaments from 1513.

Prayer for January

Prayer
Incomparable God,
our minds cannot hold You,
our words cannot express You
and Your goodness and mercy
stretch beyond our capabilities.

And yet out of Your abundant grace
You call us to live our lives
in the brightness of Your presence;
that we might hold each thought and word
to the light of Your truth,
so that we may be truth;
and hold each word and deed
to the light of Your love,
so that we may be love.

Illumine our lives
with Your vivifying presence
that we in turn, may radiate
Your life-giving love to others.
Amen
