About Us

1Our Mission

St Andrew’s Erskine Parish Church of Scotland, where we welcome everyone in the name of Jesus Christ, as we celebrate and share the love of God within the community which we serve.

Church and Parish

The St Andrew’s Erskine congregation was formed firstly by a pre-war union of Chalmers Street and Queen Anne Street churches to form Erskine Church.  A further union with St Andrew’s Parish Church in Chapel Street took place in 1974, when we became St Andrew’s Erskine Church.

In 1996 the members took the decision to relocate to a new site in Robertson Road, and the Queen Anne Street building was sold.

The construction of the present building was commenced in 2003 and completed in 2004.

Outreach

The parish contains a number of care facilities for the elderly, the young, those with learning difficulties and a day centre providing respite care.

Monthly services are held at Leys Park Nursing Home and at Canmore Lodge.
