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.

The Auld Kirk

A document has recently come to light written by Ian MacDonald some time around the middle of the 20th Century detailing some of the history of the old Arngask Church (over the other side of the motorway). For those interested in the history of the area, this document can be accessed from here.
