Fàilte do Eaglais Easbaigeach na h-Alba Naoimh Ninian, Gleann Urchardainn!

Welcome to Saint Ninian’s Scottish Episcopal Church, Glen Urquhart!


Due to the continuing corona virus pandemic:

there will be no more services in the church till further notice.

In accordance with guidance from the Scottish Government, the College of Bishops of the Scottish Episcopal Church has decided that all gatherings for worship should be discontinued till further notice. Sadly we have also had to close the church building, in order to comply with the current regulations.

There will be a live streamed service online every Sunday. The service on Sunday 29th. March was conducted by Rt Rev Dr John Ames, Bishop of Edinburgh You can watch it on YouTube: (https://www.youtube.com/user/scottishepiscopal), or Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/scottishepiscopalchurch/.  It is also be available during the week on the SEC website page: https://www.scotland.anglican.org/stay-at-home-with-online-worship/?fbclid=IwAR0keXnsIuMyPUGRmBQ2iYKDPH2Z95PGeKdU2mBCtXX5p8KGfprv4sgbqmQ

A reflection by the Primus, Bishop Mark, is broadcast in a video on the SEC Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/scottishepiscopalchurch/) and is also on St. Ninian’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/stniniansglenurquhart/).  You can see it below.



Anyone in need of pastoral care should contact the Vestry Secretary (see below for details); priests may not be able to attend in person but may make contact by phone or email.

We ask all our members and friends to pray for each other and for the world.

We usually have coffee after the Sunday service, to give us a chance to have a friendly chat, and all visitors are most welcome too.

Following the retirement of our priest, Rev Martin Roff, services will be taken by visiting clergy or occasionally by our Eucharistic ministers until a new priest is appointed.

The Church is situated in a scenic location on the shore of Loch Meiklie in Glen Urquhart, one of the loveliest glens in the Highlands. It is on the A831, about five DP00139160miles west of Drumnadrochit and seven miles east of Cannich.

Our beautiful little church was built in the 19th. century, but it has ramp access and a loop system, and there is an off-road car park. The door is always open for you to come in and view the Church, or spend a little time in quiet prayer and contemplation.

An extensive programme of building restoration work has just been completed.

You can also enjoy a stroll in the Church grounds; there are benches and a picnicLoch Meiklie frozen table on the paths by the loch.

We welcome visitors from all Christian denominations to share with us in all our services and in Holy Communion. If browsing these pages encourages you to visit us, we shall be delighted to meet you. Coffee is served in our coffee room following the 11.00am Sung Eucharist each Sunday.

We are glad that you are visiting our website. The following pages give a flavour of how we go about our declared purpose of Knowing God and Growing Faith.
