Scottish Episcopal Churches of Strathearn
Diocese of St Andrews, Dunblane and Dunkeld
We are members of the Scottish Episcopal Church. This is a Province of the Worldwide Anglican Communion, independent and interdependent – just as our sister Churches, the Church of England, the Church of Ireland and the Church of Wales. We are Scottish because we trace our history back to the earliest known Christian communities in Scotland , from about 400AD. We are Episcopal (from the word for ‘Bishops') because we have maintained that form of church order of bishops, priests and deacons which has been in use from those earliest years, until the late 1600s. We greatly value our heritage and maintain a fully sacramental and liturgical life. We also seek to play our full part in the life of Christian witness in Scotland in Mission and Service to the nation and to our local communities.

Our three congregations, St Columba's, Crieff, St Serf's, Comrie and St Angus', Lochearnhead, serve people in the beautiful area of Strathearn, which stretches from Crieff, through Comrie to Lochearnhead. This is an area in Perthshire of small towns and villages, linked by farmland and the mountains, glens, lochs, rivers and woodlands that have made it a popular tourist destination especially for nature lovers, walkers and people who enjoy country pursuits.
As you travel through Crieff, Comrie and Lochearnhead, look out for this sign (on the right), which identifies the location of each church.
We are communities gathered here, some of whom have lived and worshipped in this area all their lives, and some who have chosen to be here because they have found a warm welcome and food for their souls. We are open to all who are seeking God, the Father of Jesus Christ, who may be passing by or who wish to explore their faith in greater depth, and who wish to join us in worship on Sundays or during the week at our different activities.
We value children in our communities, and we encourage them to participate with their families in all parts of our worship. We enjoy a range of family-friendly events during the year as well as special monthly Saturday evening services for the young and young at heart.
