We are a welcoming, open and inclusive church, meeting in the centre of the community. Whether you are looking to join the church family on a regular basis, or are enquiring about becoming part of the church for a special event, such as a wedding or a baptism, these pages should give you all that you need to know.


Barthol Chapel Church, Tarves Parish Church and Udny and Pitmedden Church are now united as Formartine Parish Church of Scotland. The Union officially took place on 1 January 2024. Services will continue to take place in both Tarves Kirk and Pitmedden Kirk. Our minister, Rev Dr Alison Swindells, is now minister for Formartine Parish.



A new website for the new parish is under construction but in the meantime you can continue to find information about services and events etc on this website www.tarveschurch.org, on www.uppc.org.uk and on bartholchapel.com/kirk.



Tarves Kirk is open to all. A service of worship 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

All are welcome.

REFUGEES and ASYLUM SEEKERS in Aberdeenshire

The September 2023 Conference Meeting of Presbytery was addressed by Katie McLean who is the Refuge and Asylum Manager for Aberdeenshire Council. Katie has worked over a number of years with the resettlement of refugees in Aberdeenshire, including with Syrian New Scots and Ukrainian families. She is currently working to provide support around asylum seekers. She shared her insights on how communities can help with integration as part of an extremely informative address.

Youth Hall Project

The Youth Hall is being upgraded. COVID diverted the original plans so although the redevelopment has had to be scaled back, it is still an exciting project and any additional funds are most welcome.
