Thinking about joining us on a Sunday? Wondering what to expect? We really hope the information below will help make you feel at home. If you have any other questions please e-mail office@kingsinverness.com:

When does the service start & how long do they last?

Our services start at 11:00am and finish around 12:30pm. Lots of people beginning to gather from 10:30am and we have complimentary tea & coffee available before the service.

What should I wear?

The dress code is very informal! We have put a couple of pictures on this page so you can get a flavor of what it’s like.

What do I do when I arrive?

When you arrive you will be greeted by one of our connections team. They will give you one of our welcome packs, a copy of our weekly bulletin and answer any questions you have. If you would like, they can show you around the building including where the children’s rooms and toilets are.

Can I take my Children? Will they be catered for?

Children are at the very heart of who we are as a church. We allow our children to have a lot of freedom during the service especially during the initial time of singing (worship). Around 20 minutes into the service a notice will go up on the big screen informing the children it’s time for them to go their age specific teaching which happens in rooms just off the main hall. Please see the links below for more information. The Children come back through to the main hall as the sermon (teaching) is finishing.

Do I need to be a Christian?

Absolutely not! Our services are open to anyone regardless of where you are on your journey.

Do I need to give?

As a church we believe in giving and being generous. We take up a collection during our service however we would never want anyone to feel under pressure to give, especially if you are there for the first time.

Do I need a Bible?

No you don’t need a bible as we normally have printed notes in our weekly bulletin. We also have wifi throughout the building for those who use on-line bibles.

What about the sermon (teaching)?

A typical time of teaching will last about 30 minutes. The content and style is dependent on who the speaker is but we always try and build in a lot of practical application into our teaching. We want people to leave knowing what they should do as a result of what they have just heard. We also like to try and tackle real issues which people face. Please see our talk’s page to get a flavor of what they are like - click here.

What is the music (worship) like?

We would describe our style of worship as contemporary. Our band is made up of a variety of musicians including guitarists, key

board players, drummer’s to even a cellist! Some of the worship songs we sing are written by Bethel, Hillsong, Rend Collective, Tim Hughes, Chris Tomlin and Elevation Church.

If they have questions, who to ask

Our connections team are always available but any of the people you see speaking fro the front or apart of the band are more than happy to help any questions you might have

What is King’s Strathnairn?

We began meeting together as 2 families (6 adults and 6 children) in our homes once a fortnight back in 2006.

As part of the King's Fellowship our aim is simple: To open our lives, shaped by God and each other - DISCIPLESHIP - and to know Jesus and make Him known - MISSION.

By becoming thoroughly involved in the life of our local community (Strathnairn) through activities such as Feis, Farr Gala planning Committee, Community Hall Committee, standing for election as local Councillors, school parenting body etc, we have made many friends and served the community. Christmas Open House, hospitality, parties in the Community Hall etc, have further deepened these friendships.

So by 2008 we ran our first Lifegroup Alpha with the same result and one Life Group became two, as well as a youth cell and children's cell. Further Alpha courses in 2010 and 2011 saw more people choose to follow Jesus, and other Christians not connected to a local church expression have also joined us.

By 2010 we saw the need to meet more publicly, and so began to meet on the last Sunday of each month is our own Community Hall - as an expression of the King's Fellowship. So from 10.30am-12noon, you can find 35-45 of us gathered with lots of family, fun, friendships, fellowship and food! We worship, learn and apply what we learn together. It's community, it's participatory and it's informal yet Christ centered.

2011 saw us host the local school carolers for the second time, and also running a well-attended Christingle for the first time in the community.

Now in 2012 we have launched NRG, an open kids club for the King's Strathnairn Community - high in energy and fun, faith centered, and missional. There's coffee, croissants, and papers for parents who bring their kids.

This is our story so far. An exciting adventure!

King's Strathnairn Community Church meets as:

  • 2 adult Life Groups, alternate Wednesdays in Holm and in Farr, 7.30-9.45pm
  • NRG Kids Club, 10.30-12noon the FIRST Sunday of each month.
  • All together 10.30-12noon (followed by lunch together) on the LAST Sunday of each month.
