“It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of the Revd Gerry Dillon as Priest Evangelist for the Central Fife Centre of Mission. He will serve as Priest-in-Charge of St Luke’s, Glenrothes and St Finnian’s, Lochgelly, and as Lead Evangelist of the Centre of Mission. The date for Gerry to commence his new ministry, and for the service of Institution, will be announced shortly.”
The Rev’d Gerry Dillon, ordained Priest in St Luke’s on 26th April 2015.
We are a small and welcoming community.
Our congregation comprises a hopeful, caring and committed group of about 30, drawn from the town of Glenrothes, and further afield; and our Church is a place of worship, fellowship, shared faith, mission and growth.
St. Luke’s is established for exclusively charitable purposes, primarily for the advancement of religion and to provide benefit to the community through faith shared in words and actions.
St. Luke’s opens its doors for worship each Sunday and Tuesday morning.
The Church also makes use of its hall and meeting rooms within 58 Ninian Quadrant, Glenrothes (opposite the church and known as ‘Number 58’) for different activities, for Church members and the local community.
Following much discussion and deliberation we have now committed ourselves as a congregation to renovations to our building. At first, we talked of replacing worn pews and out-dated lighting as well as taking care of the property and fabric of church buildings as outlined in our quinquennial report.
Over the Summer of 2015, members of the congregation along with the Rev’d Gerry Dillon, rolled up their sleeves and got to work:
- We removed the pews and replaced them with comfortable chairs.
- We demolished the raised platform and cupola.
- We disconnected and removed old heaters.
Next, in the Autumn of 2016, with complete funding from Our Place Auchmuty, the parish rooms at No.58 were redecorated and the chairs have been reupholstered.
However, it quickly became evident that this might be a larger project than first thought.
The master plan
This project will involve our worship place; with a shared vision of creating a flexible space that can be re-arranged to reflect the cycle of the liturgical seasons as well as other worship and prayer.
We will also be renovating our non-worship spaces such as the kitchen and toilet facilities, as well as creating meeting room(s) to establish a community cafe and local hub in a three year long activity known as Peace ‘n’ Jam.
We are excited about the prospect of providing new facilities accessible to the whole community.
We pray that this is a time of renewal and a coming together of the parish.
We warmly invite you to join us as we travel a journey of spirituality.
