Cupar Cluster

We are part of the Cupar Cluster of Churches in the north east of the Presbytery of Fife which also includes Cupar Old Parish Church linked with Monimail and Cupar St John & Dairsie United Parish.

The formal grouping enables the parishes to work more closely together, sharing, connecting with a wider community and drawing strength and support from each other.
