Worship at Dunfermline Abbey follows a traditional Church of Scotland pattern with the Word of God taking central place.
The main service is at 10.30am each Sunday, and the sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the second Sundays of March, June, September and December.
During school term-time, the congregation has been trialling an all-age, interactive service at 9.30am, called Prime Time.
Prime Time at 9:30
Prime Time, our short all-age service with something to do, is currently on holiday.
The services are held in the Memorial Chapel, with short prayers, hymns, a story and time for a craft.
During the summer months, and at all times through the year, all ages are welcome at the 10.30am service. There are activity stations around the church during the service for those who like to wriggle, or do, while listening.
Morning Worship at 10:30
Join us for Morning Worship every Sunday at 10.30am. Worship in church is led by the Revd MaryAnn Rennie. Matthew Beetschen, the Master of Music, leads the Abbey Choristers as well as playing the organ. He is supported by the Assistant Organist, William Campbell.
Although many of the restrictions required during the Covid 19 pandemic have no been lifted, there is still seating marked for those who wish to socially distance. This can be found under the gallery. Members of the congregation and visitors are asked to be kind to one another, and recognise that there are differing views on mask wearing.

Messy Church is an opportunity for families to come together, have fun, be creative together, eat together and worship together. Our aim is to share the love of God in Jesus in a community based, Christ centred, fun filled celebration of family life within our church.
