The most frequent comment made by people who are new to the church, is that they have found the people who are in the church already, to be warm and welcoming. We hope that when you come, you will find that too!
Although the church has a 'history' of over 100 years - which is something we very much cherish, we are a forward -looking fellowship combining the strengths of our past, with the best of the present day and looking forward to an exciting future of sharing our faith and our deeds with those in Buckie and the wider Moray and Banff coast areas. Although a majority of our members and others who are regular attenders, live in the immediate Buckie area, we do have folks who come from the neighbouring coastal villages and from villages and towns a number of miles inland. As well as our worship services on Sundays, we meet at a variety of times and in various groups to enrich and deepen our faith and for fun and enjoyment. We have a wide range of ages represented in the church and there are activities to suit. For example, during our morning worship services, children have a range of age-related activities to take part in, including Rainbow Kids (under 5s) Splash (ages 5-8), Xtreme (ages 8-11) and The Grid (ages 11-14) Details of those things and other church organisations can be found on another page along with details of people with whom you can get in touch to find out more.
For the last seven years we were involved in a project known as 'The Well' - a former shop in central Buckie. We are no longer in the building but most of the activities are now based in the church. The current programme includes, 'Club Night @ The Well for primary-age young folk which takes place one evening each week from 7.00pm to 8.00pm.(It is run by folk from the church and combines games, crafts and bible-based teaching in a fun programme using a variety of materials). We are looking to see if a new space close to the area is available for this group to continue. There is a very active knitting and crochet and crafts group, a computing group for those who want to get more from a laptop or a tablet and a local collection point for the North-east of Scotland Credit Union.
Once a month on a Wednesday at lunch-time, everyone is invited to 'Bring Your Bible to Lunch' (BYB2L) an informal Bible-study / discussion. More details can be found on 'The Well' page of the web-site. All of these activities are now based in the church.
The church itself was established in Buckie in 1906 with the main church building following in 1910. A hall was added (across the road) in the early 1970's.The main church building has been extensively refurbished (no pews or pulpit for a start) and was opened formally on 12th March 2011.
