MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER


Rev.Louise J.E.McClements BD (Hons)

Firstly a big thank you for all who have supported and continue to support our website and also to Drew our webmaster for all his hard work. We know that viewers enjoy finding out what's happening in our churches, reading our quarterly magazine, looking at the baptismal records and enjoying the photographs. We are thrilled to discover that many people from overseas enjoy browsing through our website and we pass on our good wishes to you.'

If you are ever on holiday in Scotland, and find yourself in the Falkirk area then please join us for worship. I can assure you that you will be met by a very warm welcome indeed and if you are from this area, you may even meet some ‘well kent faces.'

Finally if anyone has any queries about our churches, or would like to enquire about membership, baptism or marriage within the Church of Scotland, then please feel free to phone me on: 01324 717757 or e-mail me on the address below:

"I stopped at the church on my way home from work. Even when it is closed, there is still a sense of peace and calm which surrounds it. I love it there. Took this photo and can see so much of the character held within this beautiful place." - Nicola x
