The Scottish Episcopal Church is a member of the Anglican Communion, and thus a sister church of the Church of England, the Church of Ireland and the Church in Wales, and of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. We are also in full communion with the Porvoo churches, which include the Lutheran churches in Scandanavia.
We are part of the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane. Our Bishop, who is also Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, is the Most Rev David Chillingworth and his Cathedral is in Perth.
Holy Trinity has had a presence in Dunfermline since about 1840 (click here for more on our history) and now has around 250 members with an average Sunday congregation of around 100 – most of whom come to the main Sung Eucharist at 11.00 am.
An inclusive church
We are an inclusive congregation. We welcome people of all ages, from many different backgrounds and life-situations, those who have been long in the Christian faith, and those who are seeking, exploring, questioning or sceptical. We try to be relaxed and to offer space to reflect and grow in faith rather than to impose our beliefs on people.
Our Church Community at Holy Trinity includes people of diverse ages and backgrounds. Our aim is to make everyone welcome no matter who they are or from which walk of life they come. That includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- believers and agnostics
- conventional Christians and questioning sceptics
- women and men
- those of all sexual orientations and gender identities
- those of all races and cultures
- those of all classes and abilities
- those who hope for a better world and
- those who have lost hope.
For younger members: We have a thriving Young Church group, made up of children from about the age of two, up to about the age of 12, a crèche for the very young and a strong Youth Fellowship, for those of secondary school age and beyond. For older people there are a variety of fellowship and study groups.
An outward-looking church
At Holy Trinity we are keen to be involved in our local community, and to work both with local churches, and with other agencies and organisations, and ways of increasing this involvement are always under review as part of our ongoing Casting the Net initiative.
We have connections with several counselling and other support agencies within the city: see the Our partners pages.
Our Church Hall
Being centrally located we are in a prime position near Dunfermline Town train station and Dunfermline Bus Station. Our hall, the size of a badminton court lends itself to meetings, parties, dances, music rehearsal space and much more. It comes with a generous kitchen, two toilets (one disabled) and access to our small sun trap garden. We are more than happy to consider any booking, please contact Linda via our http://holytrinitychurch.org.uk/how-to-contact-us/
