St Paul's Church, Strathnairn

St Paul’s is a small, rural, Scottish Episcopal Church (part of the worldwide Anglican Communion) of the Diocese of Moray, Ross and Caithness in a beautiful glen in the highlands of Scotland, a little to the south of Loch Ness.

We offer

Faith and


For All

We are a friendly congregation, and welcome anyone of any age and background.

We aim to be a growing church where all ages can grow in faith and receive spiritual support.

We seek to be a loving, encouraging, supportive faith community sharing God’s love with those around us in the straths and glens, where all are welcome to explore faith (and doubt) and to come to a deeper understanding of God and God’s call in our own lives.

The Sunday service is at 11:00am - please join us if you live in the glen or are visiting the area.

2019 marked the 150th anniversary of the consecration of the present church building in 1869.
