Times of Services

Our main weekly services are held in Thornton Church at 9.45am and Markinch Church at 11.15am each Sunday morning.

Holy Communion is celebrated four times a year, in February, May, August and November.

Induction Loop

The Church has fitted an induction loop for the hard of hearing. Anyone with a hearing aid can switch it to the ‘T’ position and they will be able to hear the Minister more clearly.

Sunday School

Our Sunday School meets at 11.00am in the Church Hall, Kirk Brae, Markinch. Parents are encouraged to bring their children into church for the first part of the 11.15am service then the children leave after the Children’s Address and the second hymn.

Your Wedding Ceremony

Markinch Parish Church is a beautiful setting for your Wedding, but before dates are finalised you should speak to the Minister to ascertain his own, and the Church’s availability.

A pamphlet entitled ‘Preparing for Your Wedding in Markinch Parish Church’ is available from the Minister or Session Clerk. Its contents are contained on the Weddings page.

Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism normally takes place on the first Sunday of each month. Parents wishing a baptism for their children should contact the Minister giving as much notice as possible.
