St John's Forfar

St John’s draws its congregation from the people of Forfar itself, nearby villages such as Letham and Padanaram, and the countryside of Angus and Perthshire. Some families have been associated with St John’s since the 18th Century.

St Margaret's LunanheadIn recent years, a number of new members have joined – mostly people who have come to live in this area of Scotland from other parts of the UK, and whose different backgrounds and experiences have greatly enriched our Church family. All will bear witness to a very friendly and welcoming congregation.

Come and meet us, come and share our worship and companionship. You, your friends and family will be made most welcome. The church is open every day from about 9am to 2pm for prayer or just to look around, and you can find out about services on the relevant page.

St John's worked together with Angus Creative Minds and Angus Health & Social Care Partnership to create a video remembering people who have died. Those contributing expressed their thoughts in word and voice and local artists interpreted those in artwork which was put together into a film. This can be viewed here . A group then met by video-conference to view the film and discuss their reactions. The event was a great success and one we intend to repeat in 2021.
