Local Church Review


The Local Church Review is a replacement to the previous Quinquennial Inspection undertaken by Presbytery of each congregation in Kincardineshire and Deeside - Other Presbyteries are looking at their congregations too. We will be reviewed by a small team comprising Rev. Linda Broadley, Mr Ian Mechie and Mr David Platt.


Here are some documents  that may be useful to look at as part of the process:


General Principles (link to document on Church of Scotland website)


LCR report Part 1 - Facts and Figures


LCR report Part 2 - "Our Story"


LCR report Part 3 - What the reviewers think - to follow in due course


Presbytery resolutions - to follow in due course
