History (2024)

The Bennochy Community Choir took part in the 42nd Fife Festival of Music during February.

After the success of the pre Christmas Advent Bible Study, we ran six weeks of Lent Bible Study on the theme of Food during February and March until the title of Bible Blethers.

Following a process where all members were invited to submit a suggested name for our new congregation after the union, the Strategy Team, then each Kirk Session, drew up a short list. This was then refined by the Strategy Team with two names emerging as the strongest and most favoured candidates: Kirkcaldy Central Kirk and Langtoun Central Kirk. All members were then invited to select their preference, resulting in a majority decision for: Langtoun Central Kirk.

The name expresses a fondness for the intimate friendliness of the Langtoun name while also indicating the geographical location for the new congregation’s ministry and mission.

The Café organised an invitational Easter Lunch which was enjoyed by all who attended.

The Women's Group had excellent support for their annual Bunny Drive in early April. The splendid sum of £384 was raised for Church funds.

Saturday 20th April was International Organ Day 2024, promoted by the Royal College of Organists, and Stuart Watson, our organist organised a special event in the sanctuary of Bennochy Church. Some of his piano students showcased their keyboard skills and there was the option for anyone to try the organ themselves.

This event was streamed live and a recording can be viewed below:

The Annual Stated Meeting for 2024 was held after the service on 21st April and included an update on the Town Centre Churches union process. A recording is available on our Recorded Meetings page.

A further series of three Bible Blethers discussion meetings focusing on an eco/environmental theme were held in May.
