Welcome to our new minister Rev Dawn Laing




Our pipe organ (1904) by Messrs Lewis and Co was donated by the Thomsons. It remains intact and in fine condition. In 2012 it was awarded a Grade 1 Historic Organ Certificate by the British Institute of Organ Studies. This means that  it is of outstanding historic and musical importance in essentially original condition.

Stained Glass Windows

The  three main stained glass windows are all the work of Charles Eamer Kempe of London, and bear his 'wheatsheaf' signature.

Main Chancel : Thomson memorial - The Crucifixion

East Chancel: Proctor Memorial - Christ in the Temple

West Chancel : Cowan Memorial - The Annunciation

The Gate is a local Charity set up to prevent or relieve poverty and improve the conditions of life of people who are marginalized, facing exclusion, vulnerable or homeless in the Clackmannanshire area. We do this by undertaking projects which offer practical help. Presently, our primary projects are a Soup Pot, Starter Packs for homeless people going into their first tenancy, and a Food bank, which runs on a referral system.

Our organizational aim is to establish a community centre and a range of activities primarily focused on those who are disadvantaged in our community. The centre will include a drop in café type venue, office, training kitchen, showers, laundry, medical room and project work space. It will also house the Food bank.

Our Vision is to serve the needs of the community by offering practical help and choices for positive change. We will provide a safe and welcoming environment that is open to all, particularly the vulnerable, marginalised and homeless. A place where everyone will be treated equally, with dignity and recognized for their individual unique worth. We will work to provide opportunities to build confidence, release potential and realise aspirations that all have an equal place in our community.

The Gate Centre is located in the heart of Alloa town centre in the former North Church building and will provide a range of services to meet the needs of our community.
