SERVICES in AUCHTERTOOL KIRK 9.30am Sundays

The Kirk’s yearly seasonal cycle:

Living through the seasons, finding deep meaning in life. Nature’s rhythm and God’s inspiration join hands. Gifts you perspective, firm hold, sense. Our lives within the Creators timescale. 

A significant blessing to celebrate through the seasons, quite different from the same-y 24/7!

(Baptisms, Blessings, Funerals, Weddings = any time.)
