Airdrie High Kirk

The last Census data (2011) showed that our parish consists of around 1 800 households.

 

Our parish covers part of the north of Airdrie: Burnfoot, Golfhill, Broompark, The Common, some of Rochsoles, some of Whinhall, some of Chapelside and (adjacent to our Church) Gateside Street. 

 

Once the pandemic restrictions have been eased, the High Church will be extending an invitation to people from our parish to Sunday worship, special worship services, organisations, events and children’s activities. 

 

In the past couple of years, we have delivered leaflets around our parish with information on our Church as well as flyers to promote the two holiday clubs we have run. Many children and young people living in our parish enjoy being part of our Thursday Club, Mothers and Toddlers, 5th Airdrie Girls Brigade and 8th Airdrie Boys Brigade.       

 

Our minister conducts weddings and funerals for people who live in our parish.
