St. Mungo’s is now a linked charge (Official 21st Feb 2014)
St. Mungo’s has ramp access to both Church and Hall, Braille and large-print Liturgy booklets etc. available (ask the sidespeople) a wheelchair space among the pews, and wheelchair-friendly toilets in the Hall, very close to the church.
It is part of Glasgow North West Region and serves the cross-border area of Dunbartonshire and Stirlingshire. This includes, in Dunbartonshire, the village of Renton, the Vale of Leven, Balloch, the village of Gartocharn and, in Stirlingshire, the villages of Drymen, Milton of Buchanan and Balmaha. All of Loch Lomond, with its many islands, is in the parish.
Like many Scottish Episcopal churches, St Mungo’s is moderate catholic in its style of worship and ethos.
The parish involves as wide a cross-section of Scottish society as could ever be found. Everyone is welcome; many of the congregation are not “cradle” Episcopalians. Some are former Presbyterians or Baptists, others former Roman Catholics. It is a very down-to-earth parish, but has not in its 117 years produced many famous names. In fact the only one it has produced is the former Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Rt Rev’d Richard Holloway.
