Summer Church Opening  this year begins on Monday 11 June and ends on Friday 14 September,

from 10.00 am to 12 noon each day.  This could not take place without volunteers from the congregation, so if you can spare 2 hours to greet our visitors from all over the world, please sign up on the rota which will first be in the Church on Communion Sunday, 3rd June. 


We are very short of volunteers from the congregation to welcome our visitors.  Please see if you can spare a couple of hours mid week, from 10.00am – 12noon. Visitors may only be in Pitlochry for the day, and will be disappointed not to see inside the church.

Please sign up on the rota in the church porch. Thank you.
