Noticeboard


The Fife Pilgrim Way follows one of the ancient routes from Culross where the Abbey was founded, via Dunfermline Abbey and onwards through Fife to St Andrews. As a church on the route, Holy Trinity, Dunfermline is aiming to complete the first of the seven parts of the route on Sunday 26 June, starting at Culross at 2:00pm. Whilst some will walk the whole route, others will join along the way, with designated joining points at Torryburn, Cairneyhill and as we arrive into Dunfermline.

The day is open to anyone of any age, and dogs will be welcome too. The event is being organised by the young people, but you don’t have to be young, or even particularly fit – there are no hills! Once back at Holy Trinity (at around 7:30pm) there will be refreshments and a short service in the church. Sign up now to take on part or all of this challenge – details at this link.

Face coverings remain an important part of stopping the spread of coronavirus. Although regulatory requirements to wear face coverings in places of worship will be removed from 4 April, the Scottish Government’s guidance still strongly encourages the use of protective measures to reduce risk, including wearing of face coverings where appropriate to help keep each other safe. Importantly, the Scottish Government strongly recommends that for all other activities within a place of worship that fall outwith an act of worship, face coverings and protective measures are maintained unless an exemption applies.

That explains why you’ll see this poster when you come into our building …

If you thought “That image looks familiar”, it’s because we used the crown of thorns when our augmented choir last performed Stainer’s sacred oratorio The Crucifixion in 2012. And you saw it once more in 2020 when we launched our plan to perform the work again on Palm Sunday … a plan that came to nothing because the pandemic arrived half-way through rehearsals!

2021 didn’t happen for the same reason, but we’re delighted that we’re able to offer The Crucifixion at 6.00pm on Palm Sunday as an introduction to Holy Week. It’s not quite the same as last time – the choir will be more distanced than usual, the congregation will be masked, and we won’t be able to offer refreshments afterwards. However, the music will tell the same story, and our choir has been augmented by a number of keen singers from local churches and choirs. We’ll be accompanied on the organ by Willie Campbell from Dunfermline Abbey, and directed by Walter Thomson, the Choir Leader from Mayfield Salisbury Parish Church.

Do come, and be prepared to join in the hymns …
