Church

St. Andrew’s Parish Church is a vibrant and active congregation within the Church of Scotland. We are part of a community of Christians that have been worshipping here in Barrhead since 1793! We’ve had a good look around and we don’t think that any of the original members are still with us! In June 2013, the former Arthurlie and South & Levern Churches united together to form the new St Andrew’s Parish Church here on Ralston Road. As a congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland, we are part of the newly formed Presbytery of Clyde.
