The aim of the Abernethy Parish Church is to be a lively Christ-centered Church, worshipping and serving, growing in faith and open to all.
As the only congregation in Nethy Bridge, we frequently welcome visitors from a wide variety of traditions and backgrounds.
We hope you will be able to join us for worship and that you will feel at home among us.
Should there happen to be a Communion Service on the day you are with us, you are invited to share the bread and wine – because Jesus’ call is for everyone.
We strive to be a “parish” church in reality as well as in name, being here for all the people, and not only for members.
