Our values

Connections
  • Connections

  • We aim to be a friendly inclusive church and our deep desire is to make people welcome and to encourage them in all the seasons of life. We hope you enjoy this site, and get a good sense of who we are, what we’re about, and what God is doing in us and through us as we serve Him in the community of Auchterarder and further afield too.

To Know Christ
  • To Know Christ

  • Our belief is in the Lord Jesus Christ as risen Saviour and our desire is to know him more. In a contemporary world this is not a straightforward manner especially for each of the generations represented in our church, but with God's grace it remains our aim to share the good news of the gospel. "To know Christ and make Him known".

Lifelong Learning
  • Lifelong Learning

  • We recognise that exploring the Christian faith is a life long journey and so we offer a variety of education opportunities to meet the needs of each generation and the challenges faced;  from children's and youth groups to adult education in the form of groups such as enquirers, alpha, house groups just to name a few.

Strengthening Families
  • Strengthening Families

  • We aim to be a church family and to love one another as Jesus commanded. To that end we aim to be inclusive and strengthen relationships and ties in our church, our community and the wider world through the various activities of our church family and in our individual daily lives.  A church family who have a loving heavenly Father.

    Our first meeting of the new session will be on Thursday 19 September.  The speaker will be from the Free to Life Trust and will talk about Seema’s Project.

  • Art Exhibition

    The Stewardship team will be running this years Art Exhibition. In years gone by, the Art Exhibition has been run by a very small flock of people led by John Boyd. After many years John has decided that it is time to take a backseat. A big thanks to John and all of his team who have contributed to making this such a success over the years for the artists, those who come to view and purchase, and also for the Church who benefit in the sale of each painting. John will be an advisor to the Stewardship team this year and we would like it to be as successful as it has been in the past.

    So when is the exhibition? It is run over 3 days at the end of September. The preview night will be Thursday 26 September from 7.00pm until 10.00pm. There will be a light supper, with dessert and the wine will be flowing too. The cost for a ticket to the preview night will be £14.00. There is a strict limit on numbers, and capacity has been reached on all of the previous years, so if you would like a ticket please see any Stewardship team member, or myself, before they disappear!

    The event will also be run over the following two days.  Friday 27th will be from 10.00am until 7.00pm and Saturday 28th will run between 10.00am and 4.00pm.  The cost per ticket for Friday and Saturday will be £3.00 and this will include teas & coffees.  This is a popular event and it is an opportunity for you to pick up some real ‘works of art’ at great prices.  I hope that you can be encouraged to come along.
