Welcome to Abernethy and Dron and Arngask Parish
Welcome to our Web site. We are a parish in beautiful south Perthshire. Two buildings serve to accomodate the people of the parish: St Brides Kirk in Abernethy and Arngask Church in Glenfarg.
Services are held every Sunday in both places, Kirk of St Bride at 9:30 am and Arngask at 11:00 am except for the last Sunday in the month when a joint Service will be held at 10:30 am, alternating between thew two churches. You will be welcome to join us in praise at either place for worship.
Sunday 31st August is a monthly joint service. This one will be held at 10.30 am in Kirk of St Bride, Abernethy. There will NOT be a service at Arngask on this day.
From the Manse
There are some interesting developments happening in Abernethy and Dron and Arngask.
The Stewardship Group chose the theme of TIME for their campaign this year: how we spend time, use time, waste time, gain time, mark time etc., all in relation to the amount of time we give…or don’t give…to the church. Including of course, time for worship and time to enjoy one another’s company.
Over one weekend in May there was a very successful Friday evening supper arranged by the Stewardship Group, and then on Saturday the really busy regular summer Coffee Morning. It was obvious that a lot of time and effort could lead to enjoyment and fun for the congregation and many folk from the wider community. The Weekend finished with a very well attended joint Service on the Sunday. The singing was great!!
Time well spent, and as a result, another event is being arranged for later in the summer, namely a Harvest Supper preceded by a concert from a visiting choir (more details to come). There has also been a suggestion, that came from a member of Session, that coming together for worship could be enhanced by having regular joint services rather than just now and then for special events. Consequently the Kirk Session want to experiment with this idea and try having joint services once a month, alternating of course the place of worship. Beginning, therefore, on the last Sunday in June in Abernethy church and continuing on the last Sunday of each month until December 2014, there will be a joint service at 10:30am.
Come and spend time with us, as we worship and work for the future of our church.
