A bit about the Church
The ChurchBuilt in 1877, the Church is of a Gothic style design and is situtated on High Street in Bonnybridge. The inner walls show off the beautiful Thornliedyke stone, and the striking leaded stained-glass memorial windows offer a wonderful splash of colour to the sanctuary. The Church is on two levels, with seating for approximately 400 in total. The gallery houses the pipe organ and choir seating. The church hall was added later, as was as a small Vestry and Session room. Attached is a large modern fitted kitchen. There is a disabled access ramp at the front of the church as well as a ramp to the sanctuary from a side street. There is an induction loop system in place in the sanctuary and large print hymn books available. Parking is available on the road outside. A modern manse was purchased in 2009 and is situated in High Bonnybridge, about five minute's drive from the Church.
The ParishBonnybridge St. Helen's Parish Church was formed in 1991 with the union of High Bonnybridge St. Helen's Church and Bonnybridge Parish Church. The Parish is made up of the village of Bonnybridge, the smaller villages of Greenhill and Seabegs, and some outlying farms and has a population of approximately 11500 people, with Bonnybridge St. Helen's being the only Church of Scotland. There are two non- denominational Primary Schools within the Parish, a Roman Catholic Church and school, as well as a Residential Home, and a Nursing Home. The nearest hospital serving the area is the Forth Valley Royal Infirmary. The Church enjoys pastoral links with both the schools and the nursing homes. The minister is also in a shared chaplaincy at Denny High School.
