St. Stephen Presbyterian Church’s celebrated Kirkin’ of the Tartan Service takes place on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 11 a.m. The Kirkin’ of the Tartan recognizes the Presbyterian Church’s Scottish heritage. The ceremony will include a procession and blessing of the tartans, the patterned wool commonly associated with the traditional Scottish kilt, as well as local bagpipe legend Bob Richardson and his band. The sound of Bob Richardson’s bagpipes with our Dan Garland organ fills the building with the music of our Scottish tradition. The ceremony represents the coming together of warring Scottish clans under the auspices of the church, or “kirk.” Following the service will be the annual Kirkin’ Luncheon. For those with a strong stomach, the traditional Scottish dish, known as Haggis will be served, and for those less adventurous, there will be other options as well.

St. Stephen Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) that has served Fort Worth since 1884. It is known for it’s “high church” style worship and it’s service to the local community. St. Stephen is an intentionally inclusive community; we welcome all who seek to know God through Jesus Christ.
