In God's grace, opening our doors and reaching out to bring
​God's love, peace and joy to all.​



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. 

Pentecost Sunday Service

This Sunday, rather than our usual Drumoak-Durris Church service online, we will be joining the national service for Pentecost, hosted by the Rt. Rev. Martin Fair, the Moderator of the Church of Scotland.

The service will include music, prayers, bible readings and a sermon. It will be recorded in advance and be able to watch at 10am on Sunday on the Church Website or the Facebook page.

Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Movement

This Thursday sees the beginning of the annual 'Thy Kingdom Come' initiative to encourage people to pray for folk they know to come to know Jesus.


Just choose 5 folk you know and you pray for them each day between Thursday 21st May (Ascention Day) to Sunday 31st May (Pentecost).  Why not try it for yourself?
