• 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.
