Airth Associate Burgher, later United Presbyterian Church[edit | edit source]

Several persons resident in the parish acceded to the Associate Presbytery in September 1738. In December 1741, an Elder and other parishioners also acceded, and the group was joined to the Associate congregation in Falkirk. In 1747, the congregation adhered to the Associate Burgher Synod. In 1806, those persons residing in Airth were finally disjoined from Falkirk and formed into a separate congregation. A church was built in 1809.

Airth Free Station
[edit | edit source]

Services were provided at Airth soon after the Disruption in 1843. In 1847, it was recognized as a mission station and a catechist was appointed. It continued, with many fluctuations, until the Union of 1900. The population decreased considerably, single large farms taking the place of several smaller ones.
