Our Christian Community here dates back to 1878 and our Christian presence here is still strong and currently growing I hope that you enjoy finding out more about us, in these pages as you explore the life of our two Churches here in the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway. 







The Scottish Episcopal Church is a member of the world-wide Anglican Communion, with 70 million members in 163 countries. We are a community of christians bound together by: our belief that Holy Scripture contains the very core of all Christian faith and thought, the very many ancient and modern stories that connect us to Jesus and his teachings, discovering daily God's hope and call to us through our life together.


We live out these core beliefs through: Worship, prayer and study. We try to reach out into our community. We seek God's love and share our stories together. We give of our means and talents to the greater purpose of God's work. We are a listening Church, not just to our own membership but to all who find need of us, whether through baptisms, marriages, illness or other problems and bereavement. We are here to serve God in all people.


Our congregations are enthusiastic, caring and warm, and we hope that you may be able to share in that warmth as we celebrate our Christian life together.


May the Lord be with you, and may his peace be yours today.
