Retro - Church Life
On our Retro page we've bundled together a whole bunch of events which have taken place in the life of Pitlochry Baptist Church. Hopefully they will give more of a feel for who we are and what we're all about?
Soap and Caffeine
In September 2017, we had a car wash and coffee morning to raise funds for Steadfast Global in support of their work with persecuted Christians across the world. We were able to raise nearly £1,000!
See you later Jack!
He's been with us at PBC for 5 or so months (in fact, to us it seems like no time at all). But now, Jack is heading back home to his beloved Australia... and Naomi.
Jack Lochry, you will always have a place in our heart!
Eliza Hope Constance Swain
It was wonderful for PBC to be introduced to beautiful little Eliza on Sunday 10th September. This was Eliza's first time with us alongside mum Amanda and dad David, and big sister Martha. Congratulations Granma Ruth and Grandad Stevie!
Baptism on Ben Vrackie
On Saturday 26th August, Jason McPhee walked with his pastor to the loch up on Ben Vrackie and was baptised in the cold waters there in obedience to his Lord and Saviour Jesus. Never has there been such a glorious view for those who stood on the top of the Ben that day!
Baptism Service at Lady's Dell
On Sunday 20th August, Katy-Ann Robson, June Bell, and June Bennett were baptised in Loch Faskally at Lady's Dell. It was a great day witnessing to the saving power and love of Jesus to our community, friends, and family members.
Polar Explorers Holiday Club
This August, between adults and kids, we had over 70 people involved with the re-launch of Holiday Club at PBC! Already looking forward to next year!
In July a few of us went for an afternoon of laser tag in Dundee with a stop at the science museum.
We also had a nice day at the putting course. It was definitely more fun than competition with a nice day in the sun.
25th June: Having fun at the end of the Sunday service. Youth club members and their leaders show what they get up to.
Annual Prize Giving
(for the young and their leaders).
Pitlochry Baptist Church ran a programme of meetings and events to join with the global movement praying for our friends, families and neighbours.
With a baby dedication and a celebration of Jesus' resurrection - we had a wonderful morning service. The afternoon was also great with a community Easter Egg hunt and games.
Spring Break Sports Camp 2017
During the April holiday a group from Lakewood Baptist Church were with us as we facilitated a Sports Camp at Pitlochry High School. It was a fantastic time of building community both locally and with the group from the USA!
Younity Youth Event
On 17 April, some from the youth group headed over to Perth for the first Younity event!
Flexi Group Get Together
Flexi group having Iraqi style lunch with focus and prayer for the persecuted church. Material from Steadfast Global and Open doors was used.
Church in the School
It is coffee time inside but the children seem reluctant to go in.
Christmas Day 2016!
Fantastic time of fellowship with the church family.
Several youth gathered to bake Christmas cookies. Great time and great memories.
Christingle means 'Christ Light' and is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the "Light of the World." During this service we created Christingles made from oranges decorated with red ribbon, sweets and a candle. Each item has symbolic meaning which is described during the service.
Youth Christmas Party
This year we enjoyed a Progressive dinner around Pitlochry. The party ended with a White Elephant Gift exchange.
We had a fun nativity service. Click the children's image for a short video.
Church Family Weekend!
Over 80 people from the church family enjoyed a weekend together at Abernethy Nethybridge. We lived life together doing meals, worship, archery, climbing wall, swimming, fireworks, and a sparkle party, etc.
Serve the School
Many of our youth group joined others from the community to do some weeding up at the school.
Church in the School
Recently we met at Pitlochry High School while our building was being repaired. We had a great time!
Our old building from time to time needs a little bit of TLC. So a little bit of plastering, some mopping, dusting, replacing lights, and before you know it the same old building. :)
BAPTISMS AT LADY'S DELL
On Sunday 11th September 2016, PBC gathered at Lady's Dell on the River Tummel for the baptisms of Eden Barrie and Erin Dawson.
Josh Barrie's - Philippines Mission Trip - summer 2016
Josh set out with Wildfire YWAM to Cayagon De Oro in the southern islands of the Philippines. For 3 weeks the Wildfire team partnered with the local church and the YWAM team permanently based in what is a very urbanised area with a high level of poverty still struggling from recent natural disasters.
