Christianity in the Endrick Valley.  




Fintry Kirk is in Stirlingshire, Scotland, part of the United Kingdom, although the county is confusingly now called Stirling like the city that governs it.

Fintry Kirk sits on a site of Christian worship that has existed for several hundred years. It is a small, simple, and quite beautiful wee Kirk. Its windows, which are currently being renovated are among the finest in Scotland. It also has one of only two cantilever staircases in the area. But, it is above all a wee alive house of God, just to come and sit in it, is to be at peace. Fintry Kirk is open at service times and during the afternoons of the occasional Guild teas held during the summer.

There two Covenanter sites in the vicinity, one on the hill to the west of the village, other is to the east along the Denny road. Here, adjacent to the Carron reservoir, a service organised by St Ninians parish, is held on the first Sunday in August every year.

Further down the Endrick is our sister Church at Balfron. Also in Balfron, Baptists, Catholics and Episcopalians, with all of whom we enjoy ecumenical occasions, also have places of worship.

No matter the season, always a beautiful wee Kirk, it is particularly so now as the stained glass windows have recently been renovated. This included our war memorial window, the details of the dedication service for which can be seen in 'Special Reports'.
