Burgh Chambers on High Street was for a few years (1882-6) used by the local Catholic congregation for services. They subsequently relocated to Lochies (see below). Another view. Link.

Burntisland Parish Church (CoS) on East Leven Street was built in 1594-6, and has variously been known as Kirk of the Bible, and St. Columba. Church Hall. Link1. Link2.

The former Coupar Kirk was built as a Free Church in 1843. It lasted as a church only until 1861 when the congregation moved to the newly built and larger St. Andrew (see below), and survived in secular use until 1977 when it was destroyed by fire. The original church doorway survived, as does the tower, although it has been moved from its original position. Link.

The site of the former Erskine Church (1743 - 1906), now occupied by the library on High Street. Link (which has photos of the church).

Erskine United Free Church (1902-3) on James Park. Link1. Link2.

The site of the former Lochies Catholic Church on Kinghorn Road. Now occupied by a house, the church was demolished in the 1970's. According to this source (which has a photo of the church), the low boundary wall remains from the time of the church.

The former St. Andrew (CoS) on St. Andrew's Court, built as a Free Church in 1861. Closed in 1977, the congregation joined with St. Columba, which church was re-named as Burntisland Parish Church (see above). St. Andrew was later converted for residential use. Another view. Link.

St. Joseph (R.C., 1970) on Cowdenbeath Road. Link1. Link2.

St. Serf (Scottish Episcopal, 1903-5) on Ferguson Place. Link1. Link2.

The remains of St. Serf Old Church in Kirkton Churchyard on Church Street. Another view. Link.
