Latest News 2/1/21
The In Hunc Effectum Meeting of Kirkcaldy Presbytery on 23rd December approved the Union of Kirkcaldy Torbain and Kirkcaldy Templehall Churches. A date for a service of Union will be fixed soon probably by the new Presbytery of Fife which has now come into being.
Due to Tier Four retrictions which reduces the numbers allowed at worship to 20
It has been decided by the Interim Moderator that there will not be any church services in Templehall Church during January.
It had been hoped to have a Joint Service this Sunday 3rd January instead Rev Brian Porteous is going to prepare a video service
which will be put up on both this Templehall website and the Torbain and Templehall facebook pages once it is ready to do so.
Copies of this will be made available on DVD and distributed to those who do not have internet access who previously received such copies when we were in lockdown.

For your interest these links were passed on to me from the fife Presbytery Transition Group for your interest:
Fife Presbytery is now a reality. It is here, and all of us who have been working so hard to make the transition from the three legacy presbyteries to this new, exciting, mission-focussed presbytery are looking forward to the first meeting on the 6th of February. This will be online of course, and while that is far from ideal it does reflect the way we have all had to work to bring this change to pass.
John Duncan our interim Presbytery Clerk is hard at work already in his much-expanded duties and Neil Campbell joins us as Mission Director at the beginning of February. David Coulter, the full time Presbytery Clerk joins us immediately after Easter. There is an opportunity to see these two men talking about their new roles on these You Tube links
We hope you will share these links with your congregation and encourage them to look in on the new Presbytery Website at https://www.fifepresbytery.org.uk/
