A very brief history of the village is that from the early 1700s what is now know as the village of Invergowrie existed as four ancient farm hamlets, some evidence of which, still remains. The coming of the railway and many of the houses built from around 1880, together with the completion of the village school around that time, meant that the village started to take on the character it has today.

There are 4 church buildings in the area of the village of Invergowrie.

Invergowrie Parish Church, of which this is the web site, was opened in 1909, is one of only two churches in Invergowrie still in active use. It is a parish of the Church of Scotland (sometime referred to as "The Kirk") which follows the Presbyterian tradition of Christian worship.  

Invergowrie East Church was part of the Free Church of Scotland. It is no longer in use as a church but operates as the Bullionfield Recreation Hall for the village. This church has links with Longforgan - a village to the west of Invergowrie

All Souls' Church is the local church of the Scottish Episcopal Church and is in active use. 

Dargie Church, now in ruins, is a site of an ancient place of Christian worship and is associated with the old Celtic Church. One story is that it was founded by a priest named St Boniface around the year 715. 

 

Invergowrie Parish Church of Scotland is a Registered Charity, Registration Number SC009454.
