Burntisland Parish Church

The church building was one of the first to be built in Scotland after the reformation, and is one of the most historical churches in Scotland.  The Church is sometimes known as the Kirk of the bible. The General Assembly of the Church of Scotland met here in 1601 and proposed to King James VI that a new English translation of the Bible would make the Scriptures more accessible to the people and this was approved. In time this was published as of the King James or Authorised Version of the Bible.

As a church our purpose is to Bring people to Jesus, Grow disciples, Love one another, Serve the wider community, And to Glorify and Worship God together.
