Aberdalgie and Forteviot is a close knit, caring congregation brought closer together by worship sharing our two historic churches. Primarily a rural parish our members gather for worship not only from the farms and houses within the parish bounds but also from many households in Perth and elsewhere. Many people who used to live and work on the land having retired to the town still choose to travel to worship at Aberdalgie and Forteviot in order to maintain their strong ties with the people and places important to them and their families.
The Electoral Roll for the parish of Aberdalgie and Forteviot in January 2021 shows 159 members and 26 adherents. A typical attendance at morning worship is 30 with a higher attendance at services of Holy Communion and other special worship opportunities. An up to date profile of our parish is available on our web site: www.aberdalgieandforteviot.co.uk. The Session currently comprises 11 Elders.
There is a wealth of talent and skills within the eldership with members coming from a wide variety of backgrounds. Recent events have forged a very cohesive sense of teamwork in the Session which is well supported by volunteers from the wider congregation.
A House Group meets weekly for Bible Study and reflection; members come from both our parish and Aberuthven and Dunning parish. The House Group is open to anyone. During Lent an open Study Group is advertised widely.
