How the past shapes our future

OUR STORY

The popular TV series asks ‘Who do you think you are?’ and seeks to answer by delving into the past. One way to discover who we are today as a church is to ask ‘where did we come from?’ So read on!

THE PAST SHAPES OUR FUTURE

Today Burghead Free Church is a people on a mission – seeking to know Jesus and make Jesus known here in Burghead. Though each generation must take on this task afresh, the goal itself is not new. In fact there is a rich history of faithful Christian people serving the Lord Jesus here in our village.

The popular TV series asks ‘Who do you think you are?’ and seeks to answer by delving into the past. One way to discover who we are today as a church is to ask ‘where did we come from?’ So read & watch OUR STORY (above). As you explore our ‘family tree’ you’ll see something of our unchanging D.N.A., perhaps most of all an enduring love for the Christian Scriptures, and a boldness in Christian witness.

We’re grateful to Rev. John W Keddie, a former minister here at Burghead Free Church, for compiling OUR STORY: a fascinating history of the congregation.

But it doesn’t end there.
Taking inspiration from our leaders in times past, especially the irrepressible Rev. David Waters (under whose ministry Burghead Free Church was founded), we want to take bold steps to make the good news of Jesus known afresh to a new generation.
This legacy gives rise to our unchanging MISSION, and our particular VISION, in 2017 and beyond. 

OUR UNCHANGING MISSION

why we exist

to know Jesus…
and make Jesus known…
here on the Moray coast.

OUR VISION

under God, how we see the future

IN 2018
