Join us for Sunday Worship as indicated below.


Due to the continuing Covid-19 crises, we will hold "in person" worship services when it is safe to do so.

I hope this finds you well, after another wintry week in which progress towards escaping the shadow of Covid 19 seems to have taken one step forwards, and then two steps back. We can all hope that the teething problems with supply of the vaccine will soon be resolved, as the manafacturers rapidly increase the volume of production.

Time does seem to fly past at the moment - the New Year seems like yesterday, and Christmas only the day before. The lengthening days, including lighter mornings and evenings, are a sure sign that the seasons turn and Spring will not be far away.

I hope in the meantime that you are all keeping safe, and that for many among you, you will have received your first vaccination. Please don't let us become careless, or over-confident, but remain on the alert for our own well-being and that of all those around us, by keeping to the regulations in force.

with all best wishes

Alan

We are a congregation of the Church of Scotland (a church in the Presbyterian tradition and part of the world-wide family of Reformed Churches), worshipping in our beautiful and historic building which dates from the 15th century.

The Church has been the historic Burgh Kirk, or Parish Church, of Stirling for 900 years and is the only church still in active use, apart from Westminster Abbey in London, to have hosted a coronation, when the infant King James VI of Scotland (later also James I of England) was crowned in the Holy Rude on the 29th July 1567.

We are a friendly and welcoming faith community, open to all who come to us as we seek to live out our Christian faith in offering hospitality to all who come, no matter what your age, background, culture or gender, and whether you come only once, or become a regular member of our congregation every Sunday.

Our worship style is traditional, and we have a reputation for good music and l
