• Welcome to the East and Old Parish Church web site. We are a friendly group, one of three Church of Scotland congregations in Forfar operating within the Angus Presbytery Come along and join us, we meet for worship every Sunday at 11:00am. Because of the demands on people's time in the busy world that we live in, we also offer a mid-week reflective service on a Wednesday from 12:10pm-12:30pm and also an early morning service with informal communion on the 1st Sunday of every month at 9:30am.

    We are in the centre of town and have been for more than 750 years. When they closed the priory at Restenneth we opened for business: you can't possibly be unaware of us. We are passionate and exuberant in praise of Jesus, whose love compels us to support our community whoever and wherever they are. Browse around our website to find out what is going on in the Church.


    East and Old Church are holding an evening of prayer and meditations on Saturday 25th November at 7pm in the church to celebrate the Church of Scotland's National Day of Prayer. Please come along and join us as all people will be made very welcome.
