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.



    SUNDAY WORSHIP There are 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 and each week we join with Barthol Chapel to worship over Zoom. Find details below.

    WEDNESDAY WORSHIP Because some people have been unable or preferred not to worship in this way we are holding a very short act of worship in the Church on Wednesday afternoons at 2.00pm. Alison looks forward to leading this act of worship and while singing is not permitted, we are 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.
