A Welcome From the Congregation

Life is a journey and we at East Neuk Trinity Church  would be very pleased to walk part or all of it with you.

A group of ordinary people with a variety of backgrounds, we do not claim to have all the answers, but we are willing to explore life’s questions with you and to join with you as you celebrate life’s rites of passage: births, wedding, funerals and all that happens in between.

We are committed to make God known in this place through our worship, in the way that we respond, connect and reflect the love of God within our communities.

We acknowledge the physical and spiritual aspects of life, and firmly believe both have to be held together to find fulfilment in this life, and to ensure eternal life.

Living in the present and looking to the future, we aim to be creative and compassionate in our interactions with others, non- judgemental and welcoming to all who come through the doors of our churches and into our wider community.

The congregation of East Neuk Trinity Church welcomes you! We invite you to come and visit our places of Worship , East Neuk Trinity Church and Colinsburgh Town Hall.

Please note dates and times of services, details of which are given on this website and in noticeboards. Each Sunday, forthcoming services are noted on the Order of Service.

You will find us a friendly group of people who are anxious that our church and our community should be open and outgoing. Enjoy your visit with us!

Thought for the Week

To War Without Arms

Week Beginning: 16th Jun 2019

Earlier this month, celebrations were held to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. In the early hours of June 6th, 1944, the greatest invasion force in history began the process of freeing Europe from the tyranny of Nazi occupation. In 7,700 ships and 12000 aircraft, a mammoth army invaded the beaches of Normandy – eventually 2 million men would be involved (with casualties in the region of 10%). By any standard, the courage and sacrifice of these men was stupendous.

But not all were combatants.

Forces Chaplains carried no weapons except an unshakeable belief in the Glory of God. Chaplains are professionally qualified officers who have been ordained and have been selected to hold a commission in the forces. They wear uniforms and accompany their soldiers, sailors and airmen wherever they go. They are non-combatants, and while they show leadership, they do not command. Chaplains have ministered to military personnel and their families for centuries, during times of both war and peace. They provide spiritual support, pastoral care and moral guidance to all.

During the landings, many Chaplains were in the first wave of attacks. They courageously put themselves in or close to the front lines and suffered the same dangers as the men they brought solace to. Amongst the carnage they gave comfort to wounded and dying men, gave the last rites and buried the dead - of both sides.

Twenty British Chaplains died in Normandy and many suffered the psychological effects of their trauma. But they faithfully followed their calling and the men they served through the coming months until the final defeat of the Nazis.

The great work of the Forces Chaplaincy continues. Please remember them In your prayers.
