Alloa St Mungo’s Parish Church

Door open days

Clackmannanshire

Designed by James Gillespie Graham to replace the old parish church in Kirkgate, this Late Georgian building is a large, ornate, battlemented rectangle with a five-bay north elevation. It has an impressive 207ft high spire, its corners clasped by flying buttresses with crocketed pinnacles. External additions were made in 1966-7 by Leslie Grahame Thomson.

The interior was also much altered by the same architect, who removed the galleries and added the panelled wood ceiling in 1936-7, as well as designing the pulpit, lectern, font and oak pews. In 1966-7 he created a new west chancel.

The interesting stained glass is of late 19th and 20th century date, and includes work by William Meikle & Sons (1901), A L Moore & Co. (1901), William Wilson (1951-2) and John Blyth (1991).

The congregation is preparing to commemorate  the bicentenary of the church in 2019; repairs and restoration of the fabric have begun. The statue of St Mungo, which once stood in a niche in the west wall of the Old Kirk, can now be seen in its new home in the nave of this church.
