Life and Worship

Established in 1650, the Kirk of Abbotshall, the second Church of Scotland parish church in Kirkcaldy, continues to be a focus of Christian worship and social gatherings.
Being Church in the 21st Century is a mix between traditional understandings and forging new paths. At Abbotshall we are committed to using our traditional services creatively whilst finding new ways to engage our local community.

Sunday services are held throughout the year at 11:00am with united services with other churches in July. We have a Young Church and Crèche which meet during the church service in school term time and are staffed by talented people who have been PVG’d.

We believe that the celebration of the Lord’s Supper should be an open invitation where all are invited. No matter your age, your gender, your orientation, your faith background, or whatever you feel would make you not welcome, our table has a place for you. Currently we celebrate formal Communion in March, June and November. There is also a midweek communion which takes place on the second Wednesday of every month at 14:00 in the church halls.

Abbotshall is a busy congregation with many interest groups meeting regularly. We have a Coffee Morning on the second Saturday of the month and a variety of other social functions thought the year. Our Halls are used extensively by both church and community groups.

We also believe that we should be church in the community and so are trying to find ways to serve our local community.

Thought for the week

Prayer for January

Prayer
Father,
we pray for those
who know the suffering
of total despair
for the terminally ill
and the grief-stricken;
for the depressed
and for those consumed by guilt;
for those who have lost their faith
in life, in others, in you.
We bring before you
Those who feel totally alone
When faced with fears and pain
That threatens to overwhelm them.
Amen
Christine Odell
