Our History-Kinkell Church

The first reference to a church on this site was recorded in the early 12th century, with the present (ruined bur preserved) building dating from the medieval period. It is thought that Kinkell Church served as the 'mither kirk' for the Parishes of Fintray, Kinellar and Keithhall. As churches were established in each of these communities the building gradually fell out of use and its stones were plundered for use in other buildings.

Whilst the present building contains a number of fascinating historical features, the site is no longer used for regular Christian worship apart from our annual outdoor service and picnic, to which everyone is most welcome.
