Sometimes referred to as the Cathedral on the Carse, this church building is situated in the middle of a fertile and extensive agricultural area, which grows some of the best Tmothy Hay in Scotland alongside wheat and barley, and rears sheep, dairy cows and beef cattle that feed Scotland.
We are 200 years old as a building.
Our worship of God by the rural congregation made up of those who work these farms, and live in the area, and takes place every Sunday morning at 9.30am., and numbers are growing
Sometimes we are joined by members of the Camphill Community whose home is Blair Drummond Castle, less than a mile away. Here young adults with learning difficulties live in the Castle or purpose built houses, with staff workers from around the world, and learn and use skills in a series of new workshops, enabling them to make the most of life.
Other visitors who join us come from the caravan site close by whilst they are on holiday. Occasionally other travellers come in too, seeing as how we are on the main A84 road north from Stirling to Oban and Fort William ; and its a popular area for cyclists too.
Two of the most popular venues in the parish are the Blairdrummond Safari Park with their exotic animals from around the world and Briarlands Farm, where visitors of all ages can see its more domestic farm animals, and enjoy the play area, cafe and pick-your-own strawberry farm.
Our church's nearest neighbour is Kincardine in Menteith Primary School with forty pupils, so it is appropriate that Rev Andy is their school chaplain, and can often be seen there.
Whilst this is a community that has no shops and no hotel, the scattered residents make full use of the Blair Drummond Community Hall which shares a car park with church and school, for social events.

Kincardine in Menteith Parish Church
A Church building with style.
Kincardine in Menteith Church building whilst built in the 19th Century, in the perpendicular style, and was radically alterred at the beginning of the 20th C. It replaced a much older building across the road, which, surrounded by a graveyard, can still be visited. Many of the memorials
from the older church were moved to the new, and join a host of coats of arms from benefactor families, stained glass windows, ancient artefacts and a stained glass war-memorial window. These include a painted sign proclaiming " This is the place of publick repentence."
NADFAS love this building and carried out a complete survey of it which is available to view.
