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.
There will be no Sunday services in Tarves Church while the current coronavirus restrictions are in place but you can continue with worship, prayer and reflection wherever you are. Each week we will add a new ‘service’ on the website. Click here to access.
* BREAKING NEWS * However because some people have been unable or preferred not to worship in this way we will be holding a very short act of worship in the Church on a Wednesday afternoon at 2.00pm. The first of these will be held on Wednesday 7 October. Alison looks forward to leading this act of worship and while singing is not permitted, we will be able to listen to some music, hear the Word of God, and share in a time of prayer. Click here to read Alison's letter advising details of what to expect if you would like to attend this act of worship.
Sunday broadcasts of a weekly service take place on Radio 4, and also on Radio Scotland; other radio stations are available. More locally, Kemnay Parish Church and Inverurie West Church will be live-streaming their services on their websites.
Sadly, the church building will no longer be open for personal prayer until restrictions are relaxed. Please be assured the Church through its minister and members is still active in the community. If you know of anyone who needs help or support at this time please contact Ruth Tel 851887. The minister is available to help with any pastoral emergencies Tel 851295.

What can we make of ‘H-A-R-V-E-S-T’ this year?
H-A-V-E a meal using local produce only
Open your H-E-A-R-T-S by making contact with someone on their own
S-H-A-R-E with others by making a donation of food or money
Instead of taking produce to church use the local collection points at Duthie’s and the Pharmacy. Or give to a charity like Mary’s Meals whose vision is “every child receives
one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.”
