Welcome to St. Michael’s and South Parish Church, Dumfries. Thank you for your interest in our website.
We are proud of our town, our church, the people in it, and our history. The aim of this website is to communicate all the things we do to those in our Parish, and to those who have an interest in all that is good in the work we do. We hope to provide online access to St. Michael’s, letting you know about our various activities and future events, and also to give you the opportunity to email us directly with your comments and ideas. You can also view Church and community news, as well as reports on recent events and the work of our various organisations.
Throughout this site, we also include the most interesting events in the history of St. Michael’s and South.
It is hoped the information provided will be of interest to the congregation and to visitors. We refer mainly to the past, but also pass comment on the future of this historic church. There are over one thousand members listed on our communion role, so the potential for pastoral care in this large parish presents a noble task for both myself and the Kirk Session in the years ahead.
We have recently celebrated the 250th anniversary of the rebuilding of our church, and restoration of the church roof, tower and steeple.
Rev. Maurice S. Bond
