Kirkcaldy High School is hosting Celebrate and Discover

Church of Scotland congregations from across Levenmouth will be joining Kirkcaldy Presbytery colleagues on Saturday for a special event.

They will be gathering in Kirkcaldy High School for ‘Celebrate and Discover’.

The spectacular aims to highlight what the local churches are doing, as well as discovering ideas which can develop the life of the churches.

Kirkcaldy Presbytery includes congregations from Burntisland to Leven, and at least 600 people are expected to attend.

The organising committee has put together an imaginative programme which includes workshops about worship, pastoral care, stewardship and out of school clubs, displays from the Church of Scotland Councils and committees, and exhibitions from each of the churches in the Presbytery.

They are each interpreting the theme ‘I am the vine and you are the branches’ and it promises to be an interesting and encouraging day, not only for church members, but people in the communities served by these churches.

The day begins with an opening time of worship at 10.00 a.m., and will close with ‘The Big Sing’.This will be led by an orchestra and choir drawn from all the churches.

Throughout the day, there is an opportunity for families to visit the ‘Messy Church’ area, while individuals can spend some peace and quiet in the prayer zone or view the DVD called ‘The Book that changed the world’, which is about the King James Bible.

For youngsters, there are going to be sports activities throughout the day, so there is definitely something for everyone. There is no entry charge – people are invited to come at any time between 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. for the exhibitions.

Presbytery Mission convener is the Rev Gillian Paterson, of Wellesley Parish Church in Methil, and further information is available from her on 01333 423147 or gillianpaterson10@hotmail.co.uk.
