But on SaturdayChurch of Scotland logo a similarly significant date, if altogether more recent as far as the history of Leslie is concerned, the congregation of Trinity Church in the town came together to celebrate 60 years since the amalgamation of three churches was concluded.

Townsfolk, invited guests and members of the congregation attended a special 60th anniversary garden party at the church to mark the historic event.

They gathered to commemorate the decision taken in 1956 to unite three Church of Scotland churches in Leslie – West Kirk, which can trace its roots dated back to 1739, Prinlaws Kirk as far back as 1839, and Logan Martin Kirk which began life in 1771.
