Kirk of the golden cockerel
Daviot Church is a famous landmark on the A9 on an ancient site of worship. With the help of a grant from Historic Scotland and the General Trustees it was completely renovated in 1991. The roof was repaired, the gallery restored, the buttresses holding up the walls no longer necessary therefore removed and even the cockerel on the Steeple was re gilded. It was a tremendous undertaking, but with God’s help and inspiration the work was done and paid for with no debts. It is a building with a long history, but since it’s renovation a wonderful feeling of light and uplifting spirit makes worship here an awesome experience.
SUNDAY WORSHIP TAKES PLACE EACH WEEK AT DAVIOT CHURCH 12 NOON
Our services at Daviot Church are at 12 noon each Sunday. We enjoy those who come so faithfully to lead us in worship during our vacancy. We mainly use CH4, though we also use Mission Praise occasionally – depending on who is leading the service and their wishes.
The last few years of Daviot & Dunlichity Parish have seen many changes. Since Daviot Church was restored in 1990, there have been weekly services held at Daviot at 12 Noon. Before then the services alternated between Daviot & Dunlichty Churches. Unfortunately Dunlichity Church has now been closed.
We have had a variety of very interesting speakers over the last year and enjoyed concerts and special evening services following the themes of our beautiful wall hangings at Daviot Church created by textile artist the late Jannette Sutherland. They are very special and so often admired. We have already had our service of Hope, Peace and Love and look forward now to our service of Faith which will be held in the Spring of 2020. We enjoy a time of fellowship after these services with refreshments being served.
For the World Day of Prayer, and on Good Friday, and sometimes around New Year, we have Joint Services with our sister parish of Moy, Tomatin and Dalarossie, with the venue alternating between the two parishes. Times vary.
We hold a joint Remembrance Sunday Service with St Paul’s, Croachy. This is held at 10.15am at the War memorial at Daviot where a wreath is laid. This is followed by the Service at Daviot Church.
Refreshments are served after the service. We have a Christmas Midnight service on Christmas Eve starting at 11.15pm. This is always a lovely service where we often see visitors.
Pulpit supply is provided by various Ministers and Readers, including Vivian Roden from Moy, Dalarossie & Tomatin and Deaconess Joyce Mitchell. All are warmly welcome at any, or all of our services or activities.
