In this paper, a phase field system of Penrose--Fife type with non-conserved order parameter is considered. A class of time-discrete schemes for an initial-boundary value problem for this phase-field system is presented. In three space dimensions, convergence is proved and an error estimate is derived. For one scheme, this error estimate is linear with respect to the time-step size.
