Jesus said: Love one another, just as I love you.


Welcome to Ness Bank Parish Church, a Church of Scotland congregation.

We are a Presbyterian church and part of the Reformed tradition.

Ness Bank Church’s vision is to be a church without walls reaching out in faith to our parish and beyond with the light, the love, the hope and the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ. 


We serve Christ in many different ways at Ness Bank Church, but at the heart of all that we do week by week is our faith in Jesus Christ and central to that is our Sunday morning worship – come and see for yourself, you are assured of a warm welcome and you may just find it transforms your life.

Team meeting for Messy Church

I’m happy to say that a date has been chosen for the next Messy Church! It’s pencilled in for Sunday 1st September, 12.30pm – 2.30pm with the theme of

‘New Beginnings’. Though we have a regular team, this is an invitation for you to take part in this venture. If you feel that you could contribute in an active or quiet way, please feel free to pop into the Sunday School room just after the service on 28th July for a preliminary meeting and don’t be afraid to bring a cup of tea with you!                                                                                                 Margaret Livingstone
