St Peter's is part of the Scottish Episcopal Church and is a member church of the Anglican Communion.
There has been an Episcopal presence here since 1812, although the present modern building dates from only 1976.
We are a Eucharistic community which means that each Sunday we gather at the Lord’s table to share in God’s abundance in the form of bread and wine. This visible symbol (sacrament) of God’s presence sustains us throughout the week and allows us to share in the new life that is God’s promise to us.
As a Christian community, we strive to work as co-partners with God in establishing a
church of faith, hope, justice and peace.
Our main service of worship takes place at 10:30 every Sunday morning. It is a service of Holy Communion with readings, hymns, a sermon and bread and wine. We are a family and child-friendly church and children are encouraged to attend. This service normally lasts for an hour. We serve refreshments after our service and we hope you will stay to join us.
The Scottish Episcopal Church is a product of the Scottish reformation which retained the ancient orders of the Catholic Church but in a reformed manner. It comprises seven dioceses, each led by a bishop. We are part of the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane, which has now elected the Rev Canon Ian Paton of Old St Paul’s, Edinburgh to be our new bishop. He was consecrated and installed in St Ninian’s Cathedral, Perth on Saturday 20th October 2018.
The cathedral church is St Ninian's in Perth.
Our rector, Rev Canon Christine Fraser, gave up a successful business career to take up this post. She was ordained in 2002, having had close associations with the Episcopal church of Scotland all her life. Until her installation as rector on 7 May, 2013, she had considerable experience of parish work in the diocese.
Welcome to St Peter's Episcopal Church in Kirkcaldy.
