Springfield Community Church in the parish of Ceres Kemback and Springfield, Fife, was dedicated at a special event on November 1 by the Moderator of the Presbytery of St Andrews, the Rev Allan McCafferty.

The pews have been removed and the totally refurbished building – previously largely unaltered since it was built in 1861 - now features audio-visual, kitchen and toilet facilities, and new heating, lighting and furnishings, with a centre manager. Community activities are already taking place in the building and it is hoped that the village will now join the congregation in taking full advantage of these facilities.


Kinross Parish Church near Perth has been named the most successful Traidcraft outlet in the whole of the UK.

The church has been the number one seller for the Fairtrade company in Scotland for a number of years, selling nearly £20,000 worth of goods annually. They are supported by other churches and retail outlets in the area, who take goods to sell.

Kinross-shire was the first Fairtrade County in Scotland, and the group has helped towards Perth and Kinross becoming the 25th Fairtrade Zone in Scotland, which was achieved during Fairtrade Fortnight in March 2017.

If any church is interested in becoming a Traidcraft outlet, the Kinross team would be happy to advise. Contact Karina Jarvie at office@kinrossparishchurch.org
