Two years ago the Free Church returned to Stirling after an absence of well over half-a-century from the city, and a core group has been holding regular services there.

Rev Iain Macaskill said: “My prayer all along in this process has been ‘Not my will, but your will be done’.

“We look forward with a great sense of expectancy, believing that The Lord is going to do great things in this strategic city of Stirling.

“The mission is massive – but so is the vision! We would appreciate the prayers of the church community as we prepare to respond to God’s call on our lives.”
