Welcome to the Website of Carnoustie Panbride Church (Scottish Charity No SC004594)

 Bringing you our Christmas Greetings 

I wonder what gifts you are expecting this Christmas? Do you wait with anticipation until Christmas morning and tear open the wrapping paper to find that it was just what you always wanted? You have received the perfect gift! Or perhaps you will find that the gift you were so excited about is the wrong size or colour or not what you were hoping for at all. And so, you hide your disappointment gracefully and that carefully chosen gift will be re-gifted at some later date. 

As we get closer to Christmas Day, there is one gift that each one of us is able to receive – a gift that doesn’t come wrapped in fancy paper with a luxurious bow but gift wrapped with love and mercy and grace. A gift that will never disappoint us if we care to unwrap it, a gift that is all we ever hoped for and more. 

A gift we find in the baby born in a manger, Jesus Christ our Saviour. 

Come and receive the Greatest Gift of all this Christmas. 

You will be made most welcome at any of our services whether it’s been a while since you have been to church or whether you have never been before, we will be glad to see you. 

“How silently, how silently, the wondrous gift is given!” 

With deepest blessings from all at

The Greatest Gift of all 

Come and celebrate Christmas with the Church of Scotland in Carnoustie 

 

 

 

‘Carnoustie Panbride’ is a single charge consisting of two churches – Newton Church and Panbride Church. Each of the churches has a long and interesting history which goes as far back as 1147. There have been many changes over the centuries and eventually in 1956 the two congregations agreed to unite.

Newton Church

Newton Church

Panbride Church was the only church in the parish until the Disruption of 1843. In that year 186 members of it ‘came out’ to form a Free Presbyterian Church and erected a wooden church at Westhaven Farm. By 1855 they had built a stone church and by 1858 a manse. In 1900 they became a United Free congregation and in 1929 returned to the fold of the Church of Scotland as Newton Panbride Church.

The two congregations of Panbride Church and Newton Church agreed to link in July 1956 when the Panbride Church minister left. The minister in charge of Newton Panbride was in charge of two congregations, each with it’s own office bearers. After five years the congregations united as the present Carnoustie Panbride Church.

Now in 2009 our heritage is two church buildings, the property of one congregation, one minister, and only slightly different parish boundaries to be served.

We hope that you will be able to visit both churches, for both have plenty of historical items of interest. The stained glass windows, memorials, valuable silver communion cups of long ago, all give a feeling for the past life of the kirk.

Times of Worship

Worship is held every Sunday at 11 a.m.. From June to August (inclusive) services are held in the Country Church at Panbride, and from September to May in Newton Church on Arbroath Road at the east end of the town.
