Church of Scotland

We are a congregation of the Church of Scotland. The Church of Scotland is Trinitarian in doctrine, Reformed in tradition and Presbyterian in polity. It exists to glorify God and to work for the advancement of Christ's Kingdom throughout the world. As a national Church, it acknowledges a distinctive call and duty to bring the ordinances of the Christian religion to people in every parish of Scotland, through a territorial ministry.


A very warm welcome to the website for Orwell and Portmoak Parish Church.  We are a united parish in the Church of Scotland Presbytery of Perth, serving the population from Milnathort in the west to Scotlandwell in the east.  We trust you find all you are looking for here and that you enjoy exploring this website to find out more about us, our history and beliefs and to see some of the great work and activities going on right here in our parish.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can give you further assistance with the information you are looking for. 

As a church family we seek to build up one another in love, reach out with the Good News of Jesus Christ to the parish in which we live, and to contribute to God's work in Scotland and beyond. We desire to put Christian worship, fellowship and service at the heart of everyday life.

You are warmly invited to attend any of the worship and activities detailed here, where you will be made very welcome.  We do hope that you yourself are drawn to become part of this supportive and nurturing Christian community.



Worship and Fellowship at Orwell and Portmoak

There are a variety of different opportunities for worship and fellowship at Orwell and Portmoak.  We are keen to provide opportunity for increased fellowship within our own congregation and between our congregation and others. We hope we offer an attractive and meaningful form of worship for all, allowing the wider community to come together in fellowship and worship.  See below for details of some worship opportunities.

Our monthly all-age joint services take place on the first Sunday

morning of each month at 10.30am and are usually led by the praise band.  We are holding our next all age service in Orwell Church on Sunday 6th August 2017 at 10.30am.  See photos from these services on our news and notices page!



Messy Church is an all age way

of being church which is

especially suited to children

and families.  Messy Church

runs on Saturday afternoons

monthly. We are currently on a summer break and will be back in

September.  See our Messy Church page for more details! 

We hope to welcome you soon!
