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.

  • CTFFollowing on from the outstanding success last year, a Christmas Tree Festival is again being organised by Auchterarder Bloom Association in the Parish Church. We hope to have even more trees this year around the inside of the church. Each tree is sponsored and decorated by a business or organisation. The tree decorations are themed to the business or organisation or to convey a message, so we are looking forward to imaginative decorations. The aim of this initiative is to bring the Community and the Churches together at Christmas time and to return the support given by the various businesses and organisations sponsoring the trees.
    The event will run for two weeks prior to Christmas from 8th to 24th December. There will be a programme of events which will be announced later. Of particular interest to the young children is the telling of “The First Christmas Story” using soft toys and puppets which were made by the Banner Group of the Parish Church. The story is for nursery and P1 children, but parents are permitted to watch. A number of musical events are planned. Other items on the programme will include a seasonal visual display and some readings of Christmas stories. The opening of the Festival will be at 2pm on Monday 8th December. We look forward to a large attendance. Admission to the Festival is £2 including tea and coffee. A programme is available on entry to the Festival and you can return to the Festival as many times as you wish. We hope you will return with friends and family to enjoy this novel community celebration of Advent and Christmas. This is a Community event for everyone to enjoy.
