A Congregation of The Church of Scotland
The vision of the Church of Scotland is to be a church which inspires the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic worshipping, witnessing, nurturing and serving communities.
Welcome to the website of St Ninians Old Parish Church, Stirling
I hope you find the website informative and interesting and that it will give you some insight into the life and worship of our congregation.
The present Church was built in 1751 but the history of the congregation goes back to 1241 when Bishop David de Bernham of St Andrews dedicated the medieval Church of St Ninians, the ruins of the eastern part of which still stand in the Churchyard.
Our congregation serves a large and diverse parish on the south side of Stirling and we believe that worship and outreach to the wider community is an integral part of our calling.
The Rev. Gary J McIntyre
