Worship at the Church of the Holly Rude is generally traditional with a liturgy that follows the seasons of the Christian Year.

In preaching we normally follow the Revised Common Lectionary, bringing our worship into line with churches of different traditions around the world.

Special services are held each year including a Festival of Lessons and Carols during Advent, the midnight Watchnight Service on Christmas Eve, the Kirking of the Council and Guildry of Stirling in June, and Remembrance Sunday in November.
