Care of the Church

Care of the Church

Care Working Group

This group is made up of Elders from the Kirk Session along with others interested or involved in the care work of the Church. They work to a Budget given by the Kirk Session and they report to the Kirk Session.



The Minister and Elders make a weekly visit to the Aberdeen and Inverurie Hospitals and will visit anyone from the Parish (members and non members).  For more information please click here

Elderly and Housebound

There is a regular programme of elderly and housebound visitation by the Minister (and also through Care Visitors) to members of the congregation who are over 80 years of age or housebound for some reason. Names are usually passed on by the Elder but the Minister would be happy to hear about people who should be visited.

Elder’s care areas

The Parish is divided into CARE AREAS each with two or three Elders who have the responsibility of Pastoral care.  An Elder will visit from time to time and provide support for the family.


‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’
Philippians 4:6-7

Occasional Services of healing are held with the opportunity for prayers to be said for healing and for the ministry of laying on of hands and the anointing of oil. A leaflet is available explaining what we understand about healing from the Biblical Teaching and our approach to this ministry in Kemnay.  Click here to Contact the Minister
