Christmas day Fun Family Communion

LORD enable us to be a creative space of trust, a place to slow down our pace of life to hear you more clearly; a place where all people are encouraged to join our church family in a respectful way, and that the journey to know you better is maintained, and where our decisions are made democratically with you as our guide. In Jesus name.

Reaching out
Rev Lesley-Ann is usually out and about in Birnam and Dunkeld, she is the one with a smile and a clergy collar on. If you see her why not stop and chat, ask difficult questions that she will delight in finding the answers for. She is around on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Her favourite pastime is drinking tea in one of the cafes and buying too many things from the 3 churches charity shop in Dunkeld

‘Chat n learn’ Saturday afternoons 3:30-5pm

Including light refreshments, this is a small informal gathering in the rectory which is behind the church building, we enjoy discussing the bible! (well, what else), and having fun doing so. You are welcome to join us. Contact details below if you’d like more information.

High days and Holy days – we really enjoy it all.
