St Ninian’s Cathedral

St Ninian’s cathedral was the first to be built in Britain after the Reformation, and was consecrated in 1850. It stands on ground that originally formed part of the Blackfriars Monastery and is dedicated to St. Ninian, the first name we know in the Christian history of Scotland.

The Cathedral was designed by the London architect, William Butterfield and is an A listed building. It is home to a lively, caring congregation of people from many different backgrounds.  As well as being a place of worship, St Ninian’s also endeavours to provide a rich musical experience for the community.  Under the direction of the Organist and Master of the Choristers, the Cathedral Choir and Choral Scholars sing a wide repertoire of sacred choral works for the weekly services.
