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. During the summer months (July and August) the services are held at 10:00 am and alternate between the two churches. You will be welcome to join us in praise for worship. See here for information prior to any Sunday for any special Service time.

General Assembly 2019

Decisions taken at the 2019 General Assembly have the potential to reshape the Church of Scotland at every level. To help Church members and congregations engage with the reform process, Life and Work has released a four-page guide summarising the key decisions. It can be accessed from this link.

Parish Records

We have recently received from the National Records of Scotland a complete catalogue of the records they hold for the parish, the earliest dating back to 1689. This document can be accessed from here. Please note that this list will not be automatically updated therefore it is correct as of the compiled date noted.

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.
