“We are a Word and Spirit Church, in Balerno and Livingston, with a vision to be an infectious centre of spiritual health.”
Malcolm Round, senior minister
St Mungo’s is not just a place to come to for a Sunday service but a community where you can belong.
There are lots of different ways of getting involved, getting to know other people and becoming a part of the community.
St Mungo’s is a member church of the Scottish Episcopal Church, which forms part of the Anglican Communion. Our church began with an evening service and Sunday school in 1863 and the Ladycroft building was built in 1869. It was built as a church and a school, with a cottage for the headteacher, in an age of revival of both worship and of education.
St Mungo was one of the three great figures in Scottish Christian history along with St Ninian and St Columba.
Mungo is a nick name meaning amiable or lovable, so he was obviously someone who was well liked! He was educated in Fife by St Serf and it is said that he made his way to Glasgow by way of the Pentland Hills, where he is thought to have preached. St Mungo was also known as Kentigern.
