Information

Markinch Parish Church

Feel free to explore our site to discover more about our church family. Under the leadership of our Minister and Kirk Session, Markinch Parish Church provides positive spiritual direction to a diverse and enthusiastic congregation.
We are an energetic Church of Scotland parish church at the centre of old Markinch. Founded in the 6th Century – today a lively worshipping community. Townspeople and visitors attend services and take part in a wide range of activities including, : Study courses. Christian Aid Events, Guild Meetings, Youth Club, Children’s work, fun days, and fund raising and social events.
The Sunday service is at 11:00am, with Holy Communion being celebrated quarterly.
During the morning service there is a Crèche and Children’s Church for those up to the age of 14 years. Everyone joins in the initial worship at 11:00am and then the children and young people leave for their various groups.

We would like to hear from you with any comments you may have about the new website. Please contact us at comments@markinchchurch.org.uk
In the meantime, if there is any information you require which has not been tranferred over from the old web site, it  can be found at www.markinchchurch.org.uk/originalsite
