AN historic church at the heart of Scotland’s newest city is to feature in an episode next month of one of the BBC’s longest-running religious programmes.

The Abbey Church of Dunfermline in Fife will form part of the Songs of Praise broadcast on November 6.

Presenter Katherine Jenkins was filming in the Church with Abbey minister, the Rev MaryAnn Rennie. Schoolchildren from Dunfermline High School and former Prime Minister Gordon Brown were also filmed for the programme.

Mrs Rennie said: “This is a good opportunity to recognise the work of the churches in Dunfermline and across Fife and the local community and casts a welcome spotlight on our city.”

The Abbey, which celebrates its 950th anniversary this year, also hosted a visit earlier this month by King Charles III and the Queen Consort in their first official engagement after a period of mourning following the death of Queen Elizabeth. The royal visit was made to confer city status on Dunfermline – made as part of the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June – and to mark the milestone anniversary of Dunfermline Abbey.  

Dunfermline Abbey’s own celebrations continue with a special service to mark the anniversary on November 16.


The Abbey will feature in a broadcast on Sunday November 6 on BBC1.
