Torryburn Parish Records


Church History

Torryburn Kirk Session united in 1945 with Newmills; Torryburn and Newmills linked with Cairneyhill from 1968.
The congregation of Torryburn Free Church, which sat within the Presbytery of Dunfermline, was established in 1843 at the time of the Disruption when the minister of Torryburn Parish Church and the majority of his congregation adhered to the Free Church. Worship took place for a short time in a shed until the church was erected later in the same year. The church and manse were both renovated in 1869. In 1900, upon the union of the Free Church and the United Presbyterians, Torryburn Free Church was renamed Torryburn United Free Church and following the 1929 union of the United Free Church and the Church of Scotland, Torryburn U.F. was renamed Newmills Church of Scotland. In 1933 the congregation of Newmills was reduced in status, and was worked by a lay missionary until 1945 when a union was established with the Parish Church congregation of Torryburn, to create the session of Torryburn and Newmills.
