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.

We will be going back into Tier 4 conditions as of midnight on Christmas Day.

Services will continue online for the time being, and until the situation improves, with the roll-out of the vaccine, and a hoped-for drop in the number of infections.

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 liturgy, and thought-provoking preaching. There is a Young Church for children from 3 to 12 years old, and during the service there are baby changing facilities and a creche for very young children in the vestry.
