Fàilte do Eaglais Easbaigeach na h-Alba Ninian Naoimh, Gleann Urchardainn!    

Welcome to Saint Ninian’s Scottish Episcopal Church, Glen Urquhart!

Services this week

Thursday 11th. August 11am:      Holy Communion

Sunday 14th. August 11am:         Holy Communion

Whether you live in the area or are visiting here, you are welcome to all our services.

Our resident priest is Rt Revd Robert Hardwick.

There will normally be a service of Holy Communion at 11 am every Sunday, and at 11 am every Thursday. On the fourth Thursday of the month there will also be a service in the afternoon at the Care Centre in Drumnadrochit. On occasions when Bishop Rob, our resident priest, is not able to attend, the service will be taken either by visiting clergy, or else by our own Eucharistic ministers with the reserved Sacrament.  Ecumenical services also take place during the summer months at Corrimony and Invermoriston.

Please see the page Forthcoming Services for details of services in the month ahead.

For anyone who is unable to or prefers not to come to a physical church service, the SEC will continue to broadcast a live-streamed service every Sunday (see details below).

To get in touch with our priest or Vestry, please see our Contact page for details.


Rt Revd Rob has agreed to make his sermons available on this website  –  so we get a chance to reflect on them again, or to read them if we were unable to come to church and missed them. They will usually be published during the week following the Sunday on which they were preached. This is the link to our new Sermons page.


Online services

If you are ever unable to come to church, you can watch a service online. The Scottish Episcopal Church continues to live-stream a service every Sunday.  All streamed services may be viewed on the SEC Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/scottishepiscopalchurch/ and on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/scottishepiscopal. The Sunday service will also be available to view during the following week on the SEC website at https://www.scotland.anglican.org.


Welcome to visitors


The Church is situated in a scenic location on the shore of Loch Meiklie in Glen Urquhart, one of the loveliest glens in the Highlands. It is on the A831, about five miles west of Drumnadrochit and seven miles east of Cannich.

Our beautiful little church was built in the 19th. century, but it has ramp access and a loop system, and there is an off-road car park. During normal times the door is always open for you to come in and view the Church, or spend a little time in quiet prayer and contemplation. This is sadly not possible at the moment due to the current covid restrictions.

An extensive programme of building restoration work was recently completed.

You can also enjoy a stroll in the Church grounds; there are benches and a picnic table on the paths by the loch. The grounds are also a prayer garden, with prayers and extracts of scripture to read.

We welcome visitors from all Christian denominations to share with us in all our services and in Holy Communion. We meet for coffee and a friendly chat in our coffee room following the 11.00am service every Sunday.
