Ways to worship at the Howe....

We meet for traditional church worship every week at 10am. Everyone is welcome and we hope you’ll feel welcome if you join us. Most Sundays we meet in Kettle Church but on the first Sunday of the month we meet at Cults Church at 10am and Collessie Church at 11.30am. Occasionally we meet in the hall at our Parish Centre in Ladybank (see our Facebook page or the Fife Herald for details).

During term time Sunday School for children of all ages meets at 10am in church then in the hall, except for the fourth Sunday when we have an all-age service.

We follow the pattern of the Christian Year with both adults and children using the “Spill the Beans” programme.

After services at Kettle and Cults we have tea and coffee to which everyone is welcome

In months where there are five Sundays we celebrate communion, rotating round the different buildings. All are welcome to our communion services. Dates for communion in 2020 are:

29th March: Cults Church  31st May: Parish Centre, Ladybank  30th August: Collessie Church  29th November: Kettle Church

On Remembrance Sunday we have a short service at Kettle at 10am followed by Acts of Remembrance at each of the village war memorials at 10.50am.

There are special services at Easter, Pentecost, Harvest and Christmas. (See our Facebook page and weekly Fife Herald ad for details).

Traditional Sunday Worship

Messy Church

Messy Church is a new form of church for all ages together which appeals to children and adults alike and is great for families to worship together. Everyone gets involved in making and singing and doing and we learn together as we go. It’s also great if you don’t feel the traditional style of worship is for you or your family and you want something different.

There are crafts and fun followed by a short celebration focused on a bible story which the crafts appear in. At the end there is always something to eat!

The “messy” bit is partly about the crafts, partly that we don’t sit still and face the front and partly that it’s messy round the edges as people who don’t always fit at traditional worship can find a place at Messy Church.

We hold monthly Messy Church services in the Parish Centre, Ladybank on the 3rd Sunday at 3.00pm. Please feel free to come along to any of the Messy Church services.

Messy Church is part of a world-wide movement renewing and reinventing what it means to be church in the 21st Century.  Visit the Messy Church website here.

Forest Church seeks to connect with God by relating to God’s first book - the natural world. We follow the sun cycles through the year and the ancient Celtic quarter days, celebrating the rhythm of the year and seeking connection with God through nature and each other. We are open to anyone seeking to connect with God whether involved in conventional church or not. We meet outdoors and often take a short walk as part of our meeting. A short liturgy is sometimes used but always we find signs of God all around us and meditate on what that means in our lives.

Naturally, Forest Church meetings are dependent on the weather and you should always wear suitable outdoor clothes.

Prayer Group

On alternate Tuesday afternoons a group meets for prayers at 3.00pm in the home of one of our members, Eleanor Lennie. The meeting usually involves bible readings, poems, reflections and personal prayer, including prayers for people known to us who need our support and God’s love in any circumstance. Please contact us if you would like to join the group or request prayers for yourself or others using the form on this website.
