Unless otherwise noted, all the events shown will be held at Rosyth Methodist Church. You can get directions at this link.
This calendar is mostly for our regular worship and church-focused meetings, plus special meetings of other groups. However, as explained at this link, our building is in use throughout the week by other groups, and their regular meetings have not been listed here, to make the calendar less cluttered.
For Holy Week 2018, we’ve produced a downloadable poster listing what’s on at our church and the Parish Church in addition to the normal services.
If you enjoyed last year’s “Come and Sing” in Dunfermline Abbey, St John’s Kirk, Perth is the place to be on Saturday 1 June, when Kevin Duggan will direct RSCM Scotland’s 2019 “Come and Sing”. The music will be taken from the 2019 RSCM Festival Service Book “Where shall wisdom be found?”
This event is suitable for all singers (though under-18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult and have a signed parental consent form) and the final service is open to everyone.
“Come and Sing” starts with registration from 1.30pm, with singing sessions 1.45pm–3.00pm and 3.30–4.15pm, separated by tea/coffee and a short AGM/plenary meeting, and concluding at 4.30pm with a service led by Rev John Murdoch, Minister of St John’s.
For more details or to order your own copy of the service book (£5), contact Lorraine Fraser (gro.dnaltocsmcsrnull@eniarrol).

“A Scottish Celebration”
Join the Scottish Chamber Choir, directed by Iain McLarty, as they celebrate their 50th birthday at 7.30pm on Saturday 15 June at Old St Paul’s, Jeffrey Street, Edinburgh.
The choir’s celebratory journey through Scottish choral music reveals a robust vernacular tradition running from early psalm settings to freshly-minted takes on traditional folksongs.
As Scotland’s composers take the stage, Carver’s effervescent Renaissance praise rubs elbows with Tom Cunningham’s lyrical vision of Scotland at Night, James MacMillan’s plangent Cantos Sagrados and the world première of Andrew Carvel’s Summer Sun.
Tickets £12 (students £6) and information from Martin Tarr, or you can pay at the door – plenty of room in Old St Paul’s!
