Church Flower Rota As there are only 52 Sundays in the calendar year, flower donators who wish to choose certain dates may find themselves sharing. It is inevitable, on occasions, that more than one person will want the same date. The more flowers in our church on a Sunday the better, as more people will enjoy the gift of church flowers.

Presbytery Songs of Praise Service The Presbytery Prayer Banner is reaching the end of its pilgrimage around the congregations in our Presbytery and the Mission and Worship Committee is organising a service to celebrate its journey. The Presbytery Songs of Praise Service will be held on Sunday 12th May at 7pm in St Columba’s Parish Church, Glenrothes. There will be lots of favourite hymns and readings, with an address by our Moderator, Rev Tony Fowler. Everyone is welcome.

The Markinch Community Trust Open Day was held in the Town Hall last Saturday and our church took part. Thanks to Ian Sankey and David Kerr for manning the stand on that day. The information that we had displayed can be seen on the freestanding noticeboard in the church hall after today’s service.
