In 1835 the young Robert Murray McCheyne arrived in Larbert, where he trained under Rev John Bonar before being appointed minister at St Peter's, Dundee. His time here was a formative one, and he grew to love the people he served.
Grace Church Larbert was formed in 2013, when a congregation of local Christians left the Church of Scotland because of its rejection of Biblical authority. In doing so we left behind the building in which McCheyne preached, but we seek to build on his legacy by proclaiming the good news of Christ to the people of Larbert through a ministry founded on the trustworthiness of God's Word.
We want to be a church family which builds on the gospel inheritance we have received, while presenting the good news of Jesus in a way that is meaningful to our culture. Since we began meeting together, our temporary home at Carrongrange School has served us well. But in the interests of increasing our gospel opportunities, and building for the long-term future of gospel work in the area, we believe the time has come to seek our own premises.
