New Marnoch Church

New Marnoch Church is situated close to the eastern edge of Aberchirder, lying together with the Manse, between Main Street and South Street.  It was built in 1842 and is famous for being the first Free Church in Scotland, preceding the Disruption which brought about the formation of the Free Church of Scotland.  A potted history of this church and others in Marnoch Parish can be found here.  A full history is detailed in the book Aul' Kirkers, Free Kirkers and U.P.'s in Marnoch 1792 - 1992, written by Bob Peden.


Sunday morning worship takes place at 10.30am in New Marnoch Parish Church,
followed by coffee and fellowship in the Session Room.

Marnoch Old Church dates back to 1792 when it replaced the ruinous and inadequate original church which is still evident within the confines of the graveyard on the banks of the River Deveron near Bridge of Marnoch.  The church has been closed for regular services since 1991 but is still available on request for weddings, funerals and special services.
