Welcome to Tarves Parish Church

    We are an inclusive Christian congregation with a history dating back many hundreds of years. We are at the core of the community of Tarves and we shall do all we can to help during the coronavirus pandemic.




    Tarves Kirk has re-opened. A short service of worship takes place on Sunday mornings at 9.30 am followed by coffee and a time of fellowship.  The Church is laid out cafe-style and certain protections are in place, including the wearing of face-masks, hand-sanitising and the taking of contact details.  Friendly office-bearers are there to greet you and guide you through the new system.  

    All are welcome.


    Live Worship Gathering on Zoom

    If you are unable to come to the Church, you will still be able to hear the service through Zoom as we have been doing over the past year but with the minister leading worship from the Church and not the manse.  Just log in between 9:15 and 9:30 in the usual way using the link provided.   All Welcome

    The link for each service is available from the minister, Alison Swindells
