Charity Number: SCO1170

Welcome

Christmas Eve Service   8pm

Christmas Day Service      11am

St Mungo’s is a small parish, a stone’s throw from Loch Lomond and the gateway to some of the most natural beauty in the world.

There aren’t many of us, but you will always be warmly wecomed on your visit, and the Clergy Team are more than willing to discuss the possibility of Baptism or Marriage, or in the event of loss of a loved one, we are more than happy to provide pastoral support.”

St. Mungo’s is now a linked charge with St Augustine’s Dumbarton.

St Mungo’s is the most northerly parish in the Diocese of Glasgow & Galloway, one of the seven dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church, a member of the 70-million strong Anglican Communion.

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. However, we are proud to have  produced  the former Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Rt Rev’d Richard Holloway. He has recently published a book entitled “Leaving Alexandria”

St Mungo’s is twinned with All Saint’s-Sharon Chapel, Alexandria in the Diocese of Virginia, USA.
