Our Nativity is retold by our children and young people, with a few big kids hoping to fit in unnoticed, and celebrates the sharing of the greatest gift ever given. With carols and music, laughter and ponient thoughtful moments, our Nativity service is always a delight to be a part of. Although things start at 11am, come early to be guaranteed a seat. Oh, and wear your favourite Christmas jumper if you have one!
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 with 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.
Got questions about life? Youth 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.
Starting on Wednesday 6th February, Pitlochry Baptist Church are running Alpha at the The Atholl Centre on Atholl Road.
It will begin with deserts 7:30pm, then a short video session, and then chat 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.
The Etape Road Race is a cycling event that has attracted more than 35,000 participants to Pitlochry since its inception in 2007. It is hoped that up to 5,000 cyclist will take part this year. This closed road race starts in Pitlochry, winds its way around Highland Perthshire, before finishing back in Pitlochry right outside our church building on Atholl Road. Therefore, with so many cyclists, friends and family members, organisers, curious onlookers, and cycling enthusiasts right outside our front door, we love to be a presence by practically demonstrating the love of God by serving good fresh coffee, hot pipping tea, cold refreshing drinks, and mountains of cakes, scones, and biscuits to all. This is our morning worship service. Drop by and say hello, and grab some free food and drinks while you cheer on the cyclists.
Please Note: During the Etape Road Race the road outside the church building is closed to vehicles. Pitlochry’s main car park on Atholl Road is also commandeered for this event.
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 organised a number of these get-togethers which we simply called, ‘The Guys’ Breakfast Club.’ Silly name for a silly time of day. All you guys are welcome. Bacon rolls, fresh coffee, hot tea will be served!
This coming April, a contingent from PBC will be teaming up once again with Steadfast Global and ministering to communities affected by war and persecution in Northern Iraq. So we want to be in on this fantastic work and so in from 10am to 2pm…ish on Saturday 23rd March, we will be offering a car washing service in our car park and opening up our church building to serve good coffee and cake, speciality tea and biscuits. We will also have information on the work being carried out in Northern Iraq. Every single penny raised on the day will go out with our team and Steadfast Global to Northern Iraq. That’s a promise.
A two part Alpha session this week for those involved.
The first part entitled “Who is the Holy Spirit” will take place at 4:00 pm in the Baptist Church
We will cross the road to for our usual meal session meal in the Escape Cafe around 5:30pm, so don’t have your dinner beforehand!
