Welcome to Birse and Feughside Church

World Church and our links with the wider Church

In 2008, we set up a twinning partnership with Icariri Presbyterian Church in Kenya. Since then, three successful visits have taken place- two when we hosted our Kenyan friends, and one where 3 members of our congregation visited Icariri and were warmly embraced by their very active church. We are in regular contact and are looking to strengthen the bond between the two congregations.

Throughout the year, we support a wide number of charities.

There is always a collection during Christian Aid Week and our Harvest Thanksgiving service supports Tearfund.

We Have a food bank collection in the church which is delivered to ‘Instant Neighbour’, a charity working with people in Aberdeen.

Recent Lent Box collections have supported the leprosy Mission Scotland (2015) The World Mission build a House in Nepal (2016) and Charlie House and Shelter (2017)

We have also supported Mary’s Meals and the Shoe Box appeal distributed by Blytheswood Care.

We have very close links with a local charity ‘The Forget Me Not Club’ which supports people with dementia and their carers throughout Deeside. A weekly musical afternoon with teas is held in the church. There is also an annual Christmas party for ‘Forget Me Not’ in the church.

The church is used for concerts given by the Deeside Orchestra and by visiting chamber musicians.

We have also hosted a wonderful Russian Choir on several occasions, members of the congregation offering hospitality for the night after their concert.
