St Ninian’s was opened in 1936 when it was known as St Ninian’s Episcopal Mission, Seaton. As the name suggests St Ninian’s has always been a mission oriented church, especially under their first priest the Reverend Ian Forbes Begg who stayed at St Ninian’s until he was made Bishop of Aberdeen and Orkney in 1972. In the mid-1980s the church was refurbished and the land around it sold to a developer who built Livingstone Court, a complex for the elderly.
