Killin is blessed with two centres of worship.
The present Church of Scotland building with its unusual hexagonal shape the was built in 1744 to replace an earlier church on the site. Formerly known as St Fillansone, its chief claims to fame is that its 1st Minister, Rev Dr James Stewart, is credited with the translating the New Testament into Scottish Gaelic from an Irish Bible he was given. At its heart is a font, excavated from the old churchyard, which is about 600 years old. Services are held every Sunday at 10 am and once a month there is a 6:30 pm service.
The corrugated iron building with the green roof is the Episcopalian Church and each Sunday it holds a service of Holy Communion at 10:30 am and a Catholic Mass at 2:30 pm. This has been recently re clad and refurbished with the help of Lottery funding
Further afield the Church at Balquidder with its interesting association with Rob Roy McGregor holds a Church of Scotland Sunday Service weekly at 11 am. In the summer months Morenish Chapel, along the north side of the loch, is opened once a month for an afternoon service.
Nearby Fortingall is reputed to be the birthplace of Pontius Pilate and has a very old tree (supposed to be 3000 years old although some sources say 5000 years). Visit the church at Fortingall and make your mind up!
If you are ever in Abingdon, Oxford then please say hello to our daughter,
Heather who is the Children's Minister at Christ Church in Abingdon.
