Pioneer Mission Course

The Rev Alan McWilliam is leading a six week course on Pioneer Mission, beginning on Tuesday 18th April (7 - 9pm), based at Cupar: St John's.  He will be assisted by Peter Neilson who has worked with Alan on these themes over the past 20 years.  The course is based on the experience of the Fresh Expressions movement which has re-energised the Church of England and the Methodist Churches during that time, as well as drawing on the significant work of Forge (Scotland) in training missional pioneers.

For more information on Pioneer Mission, see here.

Please can you let Jane know if you are interested in attending this course.


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. 



Step Out: In Faith 

The Christian Youth Fellowship Group for 12-18 year olds, at Cupar St John's and Dairsie United Parish Church Hall, meets on the last Sunday of every month. It's an opportunity for young people to explore their faith, make friends, and share food together. Open to all young people 12-18 years in Fife and neighbouring presbyteries. If you have any young people in your congregation or parish who'd enjoy this, please encourage them to come along.
