St Bride’s, Church of Scotland is in Newtonmore, 3 miles North, in Kingussie you’ll find the Roman Catholic Church, Our Lady of the Rosary & St Columba and also the Badenoch Free Church of Scotland.
Laggan and Newtonmore Church of Scotland has two buildings, Laggan Church and St Bride’s Church in Newtonmore.
St Bride’s is in the centre of the village, 100 yards along Glen Road. Dedicated to St. Bride, the beautiful building is a physical union of two former churches, St. Andrew’s and St. Columba’s, constructed when their congregations united. In 2018 the linkage with Laggan Church was consolidated into a union and in 2019 the united church was linked with Kingussie Parish Church.
The form of service is familiar to most Reformed worshippers – Baptist, Methodist, United Free Church and so forth – but people of all creeds (and of none) are always made very welcome. This welcome is extended during the holiday season to worshippers from many lands. We welcome people, we like to think, not just because it is Kirk Session policy, but because that is the kind of folk we are!
Sunday worship begins at 11.30 am and Messy Church for all ages meets at 4 p.m. on the last Sunday of the month (except July) but look out for other occasional services or events which will be advertised locally from time to time.
The welcome to visitors extends to the Lord’s Supper. It is the proud claim of the Church of Scotland that the Lord’s Table in their churches is open to all who love Christ. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month, either as part of the worship service or in a more informal ceremony afterwards. Registered charity: SCO 005490
