Stenhousemuir Universalist Church records
Stenhousemuir Universalist Church
Jubilee pamphlet and manuscript history of congregation
The congregation's origins were in meetings held in the Corn Exchange, Falkirk, by Rev J U Mitchell and Rev R S Bowie to further Universalist ideas.
After the church was formed in Stenhousemuir, Mitchell went to Dunfermline to form another congregation and then to America to get support to build a church in Dunfermline. The Stenhousemuir congregation continued with lay preachers and established links with American Universalists. In 1910 the Rev E T Russell was the McQuaker Trust Missionary and thereafter the congregation joined the Scottish Unitarian Association.
