Aberuthven and Dunning is a Church of Scotland Parish in South West Perthshire with two worship centres at Aberuthven and Dunning

The parish was formed in January 2014 from part of the former Parish known as the Stewartry of Strathearn, with the remaining part becoming Aberdalgie and Forteviot Parish. In January 2024 the linkage was broken. Despite the comparatively recent formation, Aberuthven and Dunning is the modern continuation of a church tradition in the area which traces its roots back to medieval times.

Aberuthven and Dunning is part of the Church of Scotland and is governed by Church laws and procedures. This means the governing body is the Kirk Session, made up of Elders and the minister who chairs meetings. The members of the Kirk Session are the charitable trustees of Aberuthven and Dunning. The Kirk Session are responsible to Perth Presbytery and ultimately to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

Although the Kirk Session has overall responsibility for the Church locally, in practise it has appointed convenors to take primary responsibility for many of the key functions, in some cases with teams to support them in their work. All convenors and teams are accountable to the Kirk Session and will normally provide regular reports to the Kirk Session as required.


Aberuthven and Dunning Church of Scotland welcomes all individuals seeking God’s love, and keep our doors open to every soul seeking to welcome Jesus into their hearts. We invite you to open your heart and allow His grace to penetrate into your soul.
