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.

Services are held every Sunday in both places, Arngask at 9:30 am and Kirk of St Bride 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.

From the Manse

Dear friends, I wish to thank you for all the support, love, prayers and good wishes that have flowed to me from the moment the news about my illness broke. The support I have had has helped me enormously, lifting me up when low.

I have now finished my treatment. From the start I had no idea what the effect of the treatment would be; perhaps in hindsight it is just as well! All I have to do now is to recover from the effects of the treatment. This will be no small task I am told (and am now beginning to fully understand), and is likely to take many months. Remember that old word “convalescence”? I am beginning to realise exactly what it means.

The thought of coming back to work amongst you all is what keeps my spirits up. If you see me tottering about, do come up and have a chat.

I owe a great debt to the Locum Ministers David, Ken and Robert, and the Interim Moderator Allan, for allowing me the peace of mind to know our spiritual and pastoral needs are in safe hands.

God bless you all
Kindest regards
