The Church is now re-opened – WITH RESTRICTIONS. We are still on Zoom and YouTube.
Following confirmation from the Scottish Government and approval from Fife Presbytery, we have now re-opened for Sunday services (with restrictions) in St Columba’s. There is a limit of 80 people allowed in the church and there are strict rules about 2m distancing, not singing and wearing face coverings at all times. We have also implemented the use of our Large Hall to accommodate any further Sunday morning congregational worship over this new limit.
Our services currently last about 40 minutes. Access to the toilets will be available, if required. Please come in to the main church door and follow instructions from the welcome team. Services are also streamed live to Zoom and YouTube. .
If anyone has any questions, please contact Alan on (01592) 742233 or e-mail email@example.com. Whether you are able to join on Sunday or not, our prayers are still with everyone at what continues to be a very difficult time.

The Church is not a building, the Church is not a steeple.
The Church is not a resting-place, the Church is a people!
I am the Church! You are the Church!
We are the Church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world,
yes, we’re the Church together.

St Columba’s building is still closed except for NHS Baby Immunisation Clinics, which are regarded as essential and will be taking place on Thursdays. These will be run by the NHS nurses, who will take responsibility for the Coronavirus precautions. The only other access will be by Carol or one of the other folk who has the alarm code very occasionally to keep an eye on a possible ant infection in the kitchen. No other key holders should attempt to access the building because the alarm will be set.
However, St Columba’s Church is still very active. There will be regular updates through the Facebook page, website and Sunday services through our Zoom and YouTube platforms.
St Columba’s Parish Church is situated beside St Columba’s roundabout, near the Kingdom Shopping Centre in Glenrothes. We seek to share God’s love with the people of the parish and beyond.
Our main worship service starts at 11am and all are invited to stay for Tea and Coffee after the service at about 12 noon. We start the service together and, except when we have family services, children leave for the crèche or Junior Church after about 20 minutes.
We welcome visitors to our services. Please don’t worry about what to do when, what to wear or feeling you have to be on your best behaviour! We are just delighted to welcome you.
Messy Church is held on the second Sunday of each month between 4pm and 6pm. This is for anyone, but especially families. It includes crafts, games, singing, stories and we end by sharing a hot meal together.
We hold special services, especially around Christmas and Easter. We also sometimes share worship with the other churches in Glenrothes and Leslie.
