We are a mixed bunch.
None of us are perfect. Most of us live locally. Some of us are shy, others outgoing. We have different strengths and gifts, together we make a happy mix, ready to give each other a hand, and to serve our community and the world.
We bear with each other because Christ first bears with us. Christ is our bond, our inspiration, Christ makes us one, a local & worldwide family of faith.
We are part of the community.
A small church in a small community – no sense in running “our own” organisations; instead we get involved in village activities (as church go-ers, elders, ministers, chaplains). “Salt to the world, yeast in the dough”. We don’t push it, but we are a real presence, hoping to add flavour and spirit. Auchtertool is a great place to live, find out more at our village facebook page , Auchtertool Community Council website and our village on wikipedia .
An imperfect church for imperfect people.
And so as church we are open, relaxed, informal, gracious, caring, genuine, inclusive. Many have found in the church family a new place of belonging, of friendship and caring.
Children are allowed to be children, are acknowledged and engaged with, also as part of worship services including communion. There’s a lot to learn from children. Young Church happens as required, led by two elders who love children. We have robust safeguarding procedures.
Hearing: the kirk has a loop system and good amplification.
Mobility: stepped access to the kirk is fully renovated outdoors, but 3 small irregular steps into the entry door. When required there is fully ramped access outdoors, and wooden ramps can be set in place at the entry door.
This life is a journey and we delight in the time and gifts we share; “all good gifts around us are sent from heaven above, then thank the Lord, for all God’s love”. We share this time of life’s journey, both sad and joyful times: join us.
