Auchtertool Kirk

Auchtertool Kirk is linked with Linktown Church, Kirkcaldy

The Church is Trinitarian in doctrine, Reformed in tradition and Presbyterian in policy. It exists to glorify God and to work for the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom throughout the world. As a national Church, it acknowledges a distinctive call and duty to bring the ordinances of religion to the people in every parish of Scotland through a territorial ministry. It co-operates with other churches in various ecumenical bodies in Scotland and beyond.

Services of Worship are held each Sunday at 09.30hrs with additional services held subject to need, e.g. Easter, Christmas, Auchtertool School end of term services, weddings and funerals. In addition, some services are also held in the Village Hall, the Camilla Nursing Home and the Village School.

The children of the Sunday school attend for the first part of the Sunday service, then leave to be taught in the small room within the church building by their teachers. They then return after approximately 30 minutes for the final part of the service.

Auchtertool Kirk (Church of Scotland) is linked with Linktown Church of Scotland Kirkcaldy and several of the members join with the Linktown Church Guild every second Monday evening.

Members of Auchtertool Kirk also assist with the Youth Club on a Friday evening at Linktown Church.

Social and fund raising events are held throughout the year. Since the refurbishment of the historic church organ, at least three musical concerts are held annually within the church. Other fund raising and social events are held in the village hall eg Daffodil tea/coffee mornings, ceilidhs, concerts. “After Kirk Coffee/Tea” also provides a regular weekly income and is much enjoyed by all as a news exchanging and sociable interlude.
