There is a warm welcome for all who visit St Ternan’s, Banchory, where “the creed and colour and the race don’t matter”. Our traditional church building, erected in 1851, is open during the day for anyone seeking a quiet place to be. Each Sunday we gather for a variety of services, with a chance to meet over coffee afterwards. During the week there are services on Tuesday and Thursday as well as other weekly meetings for study and prayer. The congregation supports the life of the church in so many ways, and we welcome you to come and join in our all-age family.

We hope that you will enjoy exploring our website, and we warmly invite you to come and worship with us.
