Church History

The parish of Kingsbarns was disjoined from that of Crail and erected as a separate parish by the Commissioners of Teinds on the 9th Feb 1631, the erection was confirmed by Act of Parliament on the 28th June 1633. Kingsbarns parish church, which was erected in 1631, was partly rebuilt many years later in 1811 and in 1976 Kingsbarns established a link with Crail. The Kirk Session of Kingsbarns has sat within the Presbytery of St Andrews throughout its existence.
