Strathmore Christian Fellowship aims to be a 21st century church that honours Jesus Christ and upholds biblical truth as relevant and life-transforming. The church meets each Sunday morning at 11am at Northmuir Hall in Kirriemuir and you would be most welcome to come along. We have people who connect with us from as far as Montrose in the east and Glen Isla in the west.
The service (around 90 minutes long) includes a time of praise that is contemporary in style with preaching that seeks to connect the Bible to everyday life. There is also a programme for primary age children and a crèche plus a fortnightly group for S1-2 youth. At the close of the meeting, tea and coffee are served plus once a month soup is served. There is no charge for this!
Various smaller gatherings on a regular basis embracing both the spiritual and social aspects of church life take place including fortnightly Care Groups that meet in people’s homes throughout the year.
Strathmore Christian Fellowship owns the Bridges building at 42-44 Bank Street, Kirriemuir. In March 2011 Bridges Coffee House was opened. The café is run by the charity Capstone Projects which gives 100% of profits to support various projects in Uganda. Several folks from the church have been out to Africa over the years.
In October 2012, we launched the Angus Foodbank under the umbrella of The Trussell Trust. With economic crisis a national issue, the Trussell Trust pioneered the idea of a UK network of foodbanks several years ago and now operates over 420 foodbanks across the UK. The central hub for this is in Forfar with distribution centres in Montrose and Arbroath.
Over the past decade the church has also run several community events in partnership with Angus Council including a Big Screen event for the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony at Martin Park plus Family Fun Days at Webster’s High School and Kirrie Hill.
