In God's grace, opening our doors and reaching out to bring
God's love, peace and joy to all.
SHARING GOD'S LOVE
We warmly welcome you to Drumoak-Durris Church and invite you to explore further our website. As a Church we believe it's people who matter, how we relate to God and how we relate to one another, and so our hope and our prayer is that beyond looking at our website, you will be encouraged to come along and visit us.
Drumoak-Durris Parish lies in Royal Deeside between Aberdeen and Banchory and is centred around the two villages of Drumoak and Durris located either side of the River Dee.
