• Hello! Welcome to the
      Auchterarder Parish Church website!

    • Our church family seeks to be led by the Holy Spirit to inspire people in and around Auchterarder, whether of faith or not, with the good news of Jesus Christ through worship, ministry, example and outreach. We aspire to be a caring, inclusive community within a spirit of Christian love.

    • Sundays at
      Auchterarder Parish Church

    • 9.30am in the Centre Hall for our informal Breakfast Plus.
      10.30am Worship in the Church Sanctuary with tea/coffee and fellowship to follow.
      Our gatherings are family friendly and open to God’s Spirit - nurturing love and community amongst a growing family who worship God as our Heavenly ‘Father.’

    • Children's Ministry at
      Auchterarder Parish Church

    • We have a great Sunday programme for kids and youth who meet in age appropriate groups - from the creche through to teenagers - during the service on a Sunday morning. Come along and have fun and and learn about the Good News of the Bible through games, music, story, drama, videos and crafty stuff!

Our values

  • 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.
