Saturday 31st August 2.30pm - Welcome Service for Rev Mark Slaney @ Perth Methodist Church

Rev Mark Slaney will be the new Chair of District from 1st September.

Message received from Pam Bostock:-

In Perth we are beginning to do some domestic planning for the above event.
We are thinking that it could be a good idea to spread the load somewhat and we are wondering if you could find a team of, say, 3 or 4 people from Blairgowrie who would be happy to help pour tea and coffee at the end of the service which begins at 2.30pm on Sat 31 August. The helpers would need to arrive 15 minutes before the service so that they could familiarise themselves with the lay-out of the hall, etc. Perth people would make the tea and coffee and keep the supply coming.
If this seems too much to ask, please do say so. We simply feel that it is worth asking.
Kind regards

Saturday 7th September.

Riverside Methodist Church, Rattray, Blairgowrie
Press Release

Church decides to move out of 127 year old building

The Methodist church have agreed that they will move out of their 127 year old building in Riverside Road, a landmark building in Blairgowrie. Members of the church council made the decision at a meeting on 1st May because they can no longer afford the upkeep and running costs of the historic 200 seat church. As well as the enormous heating costs there are also expensive issues to be dealt with in the fabric of the building.

This decision was not made lightly. The church has a proud history in Blairgowrie since opening in 1887. In 1885 Mr David Borrie, a local businessman, had left his fortune for the building of a Methodist church in the town.

The church contains several stained glass windows including a large war memorial window honouring those from The Labour Corps regiment who gave their lives in the first world war. The organ in the church is an historically significant instrument made in 1870 by Peter Conacher.

The church now meet at the Wellmeadow Café Gas Brae Blairgowrie at 11.00 am
