    Walking with God is uncomfortable and messy at times.

    It puts us in places we would rather not be, with people we struggle with. It shines a light on parts of our lives we would rather keep hidden, it challenges who we think we are and sometimes rips us apart so that we can be reformed.

  • Image for God

    God

    … is powerful, yet personal. He created the universe, and made human beings in his image to have a special relationship with him, to support and care for one another, and to have a particular responsibility over his creation.

  • Image for People

    People

    Human beings are made both in the image of God and to love God. God’s intention is that people will live together as caring companions who support each other.

  • Image for Creation

    Creation

    Much of the universe in which we live is both beautiful and wonderful – and it is all precious to God. But, the earth has suffered over centuries of human exploitation and neglect. We believe that God’s heart aches for the restoration of his damaged creation.

Welcome to gariochchurch on the Web

We are a group of Christians who live in the Garioch area of Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Our homes are in Inverurie, Oldmeldrum, Insch, Newmachar, Blackburn, Kemnay and Kintore. gariochchurch was officially launched on 1st September 2007 and accepted into membership of the Baptist Union of Scotland on 11th September. Our desire is to see a flourishing rural church in the Garioch which is slightly different in flavour to other churches in the area. We want to express what it means to be a Christian in the 21st century in a variety of ways, but focusing on the use of homes and the building of relationships as priorities.

Community
The vision of gariochchurch is to see a number of groups, which are home-based and focussed on local outreach, meeting in this area as a key means by which God can reach out to our neighbours. These groups seek to be a faithful expression of the body of Christ within our local communities.

Our values represent where gariochchurch finds itself at this moment … we are called to love other people, worship and obey God, and to care for God’s creation.

All of our home-based groups join together as a larger congregation once or twice a month. These @central meetings are usually on the first and fifth Sunday of the month at 3.15pm in the Harlaw Centre, Inverurie.
