Information

Markinch and Thornton Parish Church of Scotland

Covid-19 information. Suspension of all activities.

In line with advice from the Scottish and UK Governments, and from the Church of Scotland Covid-19 Task Group, all of our Church activities – including Sunday services, Easter services, Prayer Group, coffee mornings, and Youth Club – have been suspended with immediate effect. While regrettable, this action is necessary in order to protect the health of parishioners, visitors, and the wider public.
Both Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 4 broadcast services of worship. While these do not supply the communal aspect of our usual services, they do offer the opportunity to feel part of a congregation. Anyone requiring pastoral support should contact our Locum Minister, the Rev. Alistair McLeod on 01592 744558. Any other queries can be addressed to our Session Clerk, Bryan Gould, by email to:- sessionclerk@markinchandthorntonchurch.org.uk or by calling 07563 516656.
We will continue to issue updates whenever more information is available.In the meantime, we will keep those affected by Covid-19, and those involved in supporting them, in our prayers.
