Christ Church is an Open Church - open daily -
Christ Church, Kincardine O’Neil is a small Scottish Episcopal Church in the middle of Royal Deeside. It is a Scottish Charity, Number SC001675.
Everyone says that small rural churches cannot survive without ripping out the pews, and singing happy-clappy hymns projected on a screen. Against the trend Christ Church thrives under our Priest in Charge, Rev. Dr. David Greenwood. Strong on the traditional services but enormously friendly and welcoming in atmosphere the services are anything but intimidating. We have funded a full-time priest's post, resident in the village and, guess what? The congregation is increasing.
Why don't you come along and be part of what's happening here?
Christ Church liaises with the other Scottish Episcopal Churches in middle and upper Deeside. Occasionally, as holidays and other circumstances demand, services are taken by outside clergy or by laymen from our congregation.
The service schedule (subject to the vagueries of the church kalendar) is generally as listed at the bottom of this page. On the 2nd Sunday of the month the main service is evensong and there is also a 10am spoken Communion. At this evensong it will be a pretty traditional services where the congregation are expected to sing everything - unless there's an anthem of course.
In contrast, on 5th Sundays, we celebrate Choral Evensong, which is a very popular service where the choir do much of the work, it is generally followed by a glass of wine. Again, there will be a 10am spoken Communion on these days.
