The Life (Living In Faith Everyday) Home Group meets at Stewart & Jill Barker's home in Pitlochry (Telephone 01796 473432). We meet for refreshments and cake from 7:30pm. Usually we chat over what was shared in the sermon on the previous Sunday, pray for and with one another, and share Life.
Come for a soup lunch (£3) and a chat. Some of those who regularly attend are part of our church family but many others are neighbours and friends from the local community. You are assured of a warm welcome.
The WA Soup Lunch takes place every Friday (October to April) in the Atholl Centre which is located at the back of our church building on Atholl Road. We have a DVD lending library, available each week, and a stall on the 1st Friday of the month.
We don't need any other excuse other than the fact that we really enjoy our curry and the Prince of India staff look after us very well. If you fancy joining us for a curry and a maybe a wee beer, let us know through the contact page and Martin Deeks who organise our Curry Nights will get back to you. We will be in the Old Mill at 7pm. Afterwards, we will be in the Prince of India at 8pm.
Doors Open at 10:30am to catch up with people and, if need be, to see your children into either Creche (babies and pre-school), Hiz Kidz (primary), or TYG (secondary). Our worship service begins at 11am with our young people going straight into their groups. They will rejoin us sometime after 12 noon for Family Time which will see us through to sometime near 12:30pm. Time to chat with tea and coffee follow.
There is ample parking spaces in front of the church building and the surrounding neighbourhood.

Our family-friendly Christingle Service brings together people of all ages. There will be lots of candles, carol singing, stories, and we all get to make our very own Christingle before every light is dimmed and we shing Silent Night together. This wonderful festive celebration retells the story of God’s love for us and is a favourite service of many.
Take time to join others in celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus. This 30-40 minute service is for all the family. Why not encourage your children to bring one of their presents they've been given to 'shown and tell' everyone about it. Come celebrate Christmas with us.

Services are held at the Balhousie Care Home on the first Sunday of each month.
For the majority of the residents of Balhousie this is the only time they are able to meet with other Christians to worship, and so we feel that the Balhousie service is a lifeline for many. The service starts at 3pm and is followed by refreshments
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, it’s coming to Pitlochry, and everyone is invited. It runs in cafes, churches, universities, homes - you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk (dvd) and good conversation.
Starting on Sunday 13th January, Pitlochry Baptist Church are running Alpha in the Escape Route Cafe on Atholl Road. It will begin with a meal at 5:30pm, so don’t have your dinner beforehand! We then watch a dvd for 25minutes or so, and then chat together about what we have watched. Simple! Alpha will last for 7 sessions. We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; whatever that is and wherever they are.
If you are interested and want to secure a space for yourself and maybe a friend, drop us line via the Get in Touch Page.

A number of men in our church family regularly meet during the week, and early in the morning, to encourage one another as followers of Jesus. To spread the love a little, and dispel the myth that to meet like this is too hard, especially on a work day, we’re organised a few of these get-togethers which we’ve simply called, ‘The Guys’ Breakfast Club.’ Silly name for a silly time of day. All you guys are welcome. Bacon rolls will be served!

We run STREET SPORTS in partnership with P&K council and St Johnstone Football Club's 'Saints in the Community' programme at Pitlochry High School. STREET SPORTS is highly popular and attracts many young people who play 4-a-side football games on the enclosed football pitch. The games typically last for 10 minutes but those who take part can play on and off for 2 hours as part of a league format. Oh, and STREET SPORTS is FREE!
