Welcome to our Parish Church

The villages of Fowlis Wester, Madderty, Monzie and Gask are a grouping of rural communities who make up the Mid-Strathearn Parish.

We worship in four different buildings, each set in or near the key communities of this area.

As a family of Christian people we offer opportunities for regular worship and aim to serve our community through caring and involvement. Our congregational life is marked by a sense of ‘Christian family’, regular prayer, occasional social events, and meetings of various groups for all ages.

Our overarching Vision is to know, experience, and demonstrate to others God’s love as revealed in Jesus Christ, and so worship that God, serve in God’s name and reach out in God’s love to any and all.

We seek to be welcoming, open, warm and friendly, and we look forward to welcoming you to any of our worship services, events or buildings.

  • Try Praying

    We now have Trypraying booklets in our communities.

    Trypraying is the work of a traffic planner, a shop manager, a writer, a designer, an entrepreneur, a civil engineer and others.The desire to reach out to God is basic to many, many people. Trypraying is a resource for people like that: no church connection or interest, but open to find out about God. The trypraying booklet is a 7-day prayer guide and is now being used by many to pass on to friends and family with a few words of encouragement, ‘Why don’t you try praying for a week and see what happens in your life?’If you want information about the project that has grown around this go to www.thereishope.co.uk. The idea, resources and project around this are run by a small charity registered in Scotland called There Is Hope (SC048037).
