CreatorName St Andrew's Episcopal Church, Brechin
AdminHistory St Andrew's Episcopal Church in Brechin, Angus is part of the Brechin Diocese. After being driven from Brechin Cathedral in 1695, the Episcopalians established a meeting-house in the High Street. A chapel was built in 1743. The seats and books of the chapel were burned at the Market Cross in 1746 by Cumberland's soldiers; the chapel was later taken over by the Qualified congregation. The charge was vacant from 1749 and was overseen from Lochlee (Tarfside) from 1770-1786. St Andrews Church was built in 1809 and consecrated on 23 June 1811; this was replaced by present day St Andrews Church in 1888. The project of building a new church in 1888 was spearheaded by Reverend James Crabb, according to the wishes of the late Bishop of Brechin, Alexander Penrose Forbes. The new church building was designed by the architect Alexander Ross of the firm Ross & MacBeth of Inverness. Lochlee (Tarfside) has been linked to Brechin since 1953.
