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
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".
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.
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.
Hello, I'm Rob Barlow,
- Minister at Auchterarder Parish Church
I am the minister at Auchterarder Parish Church. Married to Gwen, with four grown up children and five grandchildren. Gwen and I are both from a scientific background and have come into ministry after 30 years or so in research and industrial posts. We are blessed to be here in Auchterarder and the church is continuing to grow - we have a good number of young families and we try to mix both contemporary and traditional elements of worship to reflect the diversity. If you are new to Auchterarder or just visiting I hope that you will find a warm welcome. Whether on Sunday or at one of the activities during the week, it would be good to see you!

So please pray for us and if you would like to contribute, however small, to the cost of the weekend, or indeed generally to the children’s and youth work in our church, please contact Rob or Gwen Barlow or make a donation using the Paypal facility at the bottom of this page.
