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 all are welcome to worship.




    Tarves Kirk is open to all. A service of worship, jointly with Barthol Chapel, takes place on Sunday mornings at 10.00 am followed by coffee and a time of fellowship.  Find the Order of Service and Worship Materials on the Worship page

    The Church is laid out cafe-style. The wearing of masks is no longer required but please respect in so far as possible the wishes of anyone who wants to maintain physical distancing.

    All are welcome.
