Christmas Day 2017

We had a wonderful celebration on Christmas morning.  Reverend Roy led our worship with a large congregation present.  The church looked very festive with the tree taking pride of place beside the high altar.

A new arrival

We were delighted to hear of the safe arrival of Otto Findlay, a new son for our German friends Christian and Kerstin Lontzek and a brother for Mathilde.  We wish them all the very best and hope to meet Otto in person in 2018.

Aberlour Orphanage Memorial Panel

On Sunday 12th November, the Lord Lieutenant of Banffshire, Mrs Clare Russell, unveiled a panel in the church depicting the life in the former Aberlour Orphanage. This was timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the closure of the Orphanage in 1967. It also conceded with Remembrance Day.
