Abernethy and Dron and Arngask

Welcome to Abernethy and Dron and Arngask Parish

Welcome to our Web site. We are a parish in beautiful south Perthshire. Two buildings serve to accommodate the people of the parish: Kirk of St Bride in Abernethy and Arngask Church in Glenfarg.

Does the Church keep pace with our changing society?

An interesting question, particularly as we search for a new Minister. The Church of Scotland has instigated an initiative to discuss topics of challenge for today's Church in a series of 'Taking a Pew'. A pew (or two) is placed in the open and a Church leader discusses current topics with individuals. These discussions can be both enlightening and thought provoking. To watch the current video go to here


Services are held every Sunday in both places, Kirk of St Bride at 9:30 am and Arngask at 11:00 am except for (usually) the last Sunday in the month when a joint Service will be held at 11:00 am, alternating between the two churches. You will be welcome to join us in praise at either place for worship. See here for information prior to any Sunday for any special Service time.
