Brief History:
The Methodist movement reached Kirkcaldy in 1883 and the society initially met in Speedie’s Hall in Sinclairtown. The Sinclairtown society moved into the present building In 1888 and at that time it formed part of the Edinburgh Nicolson Square Circuit. In 1978 the Nicolson Square Circuit merged with the second Edinburgh Circuit of Tollcross to become the Edinburgh and Forth Circuit.

During the latter part of the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth century the Methodist movement continued to develop and the church family expanded. However the early nineteen eighties proved to be a period of crisis and closure was seriously considered. Having reached a trough in our decline the church family celebrated a glorious centenary in 1988 and gentle growth has followed since.

In 2014, the church received a £10,000 National Churches Trust grant to help fund a project  including installing a new boiler to provide better heating, making the sanctuary space a multiple use area by removing the pews, providing new accessible toilet facilities and a new open plan kitchen area with serving counters in the church hall. The church is a Scottish Grade C (II) listed building.

The church has also benefited from a grant via the Joseph Rank Trust.
