A warm welcome to the website of Leuchars St Athernase Church of Scotland
We are the parish church for the villages of Guardbridge, Balmullo and Leuchars, plus the hamlet of St Michaels and the housing development at Drumoig. Some of our folk were brought up in other denominations and we benefit from the broad mix of traditions in our midst.
Following the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review, it was announced that the RAF would transition to a single Main Operating Base in Scotland - RAF Lossiemouth - which would continue the growth of the Typhoon Force and provide Quick Reaction Alert for the Northern United Kingdom.
On 1st April 2015, RAF Leuchars transferred to Army control and 'Leuchars Station' became the home of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, 2 Close Support Battalion of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, and 110 Provost Company of the Royal Military Police.
Leuchars will remain home to No 612 Squadron, 71 Engineer Regiment, the East of Scotland Universities Air Squadron and Number 12 Air Experience Flight.
People are always coming and going in our parish and we always do our best to be friendly to visitors and newcomers. We look forward to working with our new neighbours.
What's On and Regeneration 2014-17

In addition, the latest news about the Regeneration of Leuchars St Athernase is available by visiting the Regeneration Section.
Leuchars St Athernase Church has embarked on an ambitious Regeneration Project which will attend to significant structural repairs and see our precious church fit for the 21st Century and beyond. Our church is the best preserved Romanesque Parish Church in Scotland and the Regeneration Project will result in our church being accessible 7 days a week and will offer our local community and visitors alike, well-resourced flexible spaces to utilise.
Given the historic significance of Leuchars St Athernase there will be an opportunity to perhaps develop a high quality visitor destination center. We need to raise £560,000 and would be very grateful for any donation towards our very worthwhile Regeneration Project. Thank you.
Everyone receives a very warm welcome at Leuchars St Athernase and we look forward to meeting you.
Should you wish to consider our beautiful and historic church for a Wedding or perhaps a Baptism. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
