Jean Grey of Cupar, a faithful member who contributed to the life of Ceres church over many years died peacefully in St Andrews Community Hospital on 14th January.   A funeral service subject to covid restrictions,  is set for Wednesday 10th February at 11.00 am in Kirkcaldy Crematorium. Katy writes that funeral procession will go through Ceres, past the church, so that friends can pay respects. It will be leaving Cupar about 10am on the 10th of February.


The Scottish Government's Communities Secretary, Aileen Campbell MSP has sent a message of reassurance to faith groups, saying that places of worship will be among the first to reopen when Covid restrictions are eased.

On the next three Tuesdays at 6.30p.m. on Zoom come along and share our Talk the Week spot.
