Welcome to the website of St. Serf's Church of Scotland, Tullibody


We hold services in the church building every Sunday.

10.00am & 12.00noon

There are a number of restrictions on what we can do and for example for the time being we will not be able to sing hymns.  We ask you to wear a face mask and to follow government advice www.gov.scot   

The number of people we can have in the building is also limited so we will be holding two services.  The second service will be a repeat of the first one so please only come to one of them!

We appreciate that some people can't or don't want to come to church right now.  We have an online service (we use Zoom) every Sunday at 2pm.  For further information please email dbarrie@churchofscotland.org.uk   We also have an on line prayer meeting on Tuesdays at 7.30pm followed by a Bible Study at 8.00pm.  There is an online service every Thursday at 2pm.  You can listen to an abridged version of it below.  Back copies are available on the Services and Meetings page.

Service : 27th November 2020

Reading : Psalm 63

Please join Christians all around the country by lighting a candle, putting it in your window and praying every Sunday at 7pm

We have a Prayer Meeting on line on Tuesdays.  If you would like people to be asked to pray for you or for a situation or to join us in prayer please email dbarrie@churchofscotland.org.uk  Requests for prayer can be framed anonymously or by name (e.g.  “Someone has asked us to pray for their brother who has cancer and has had his treatment postponed” OR “Frank asks you to pray for him because he has lost his job”)  Please make clear in the email the information you would want shared publically.

This year in place of our normal Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services we will have a service on Zoom on Christmas Eve at 7pm.  Please do try to join us then.




Like all Church of Scotland congregations we are a parish church which means we are here for the community as well as for our own members. If you want to talk to someone about the Christian faith or for that matter anything else I’d be happy to speak to you. You can phone me on 01259 213326 or you can email me at DBarrie@churchofscotland.org.uk
