Please consider a gift to the Kincardine-Upper Kent Churches

November 29, 2022

Dear Friends,

The Kincardine-Upper Kent congregation’s two church buildings bring back memories of worship, music and family events. Weddings, baptisms and, of course, funerals, figure prominently in all of our lives.

These buildings and cemetery are in constant need of maintenance and repair. As a result, the Kincardine Upper Kent Congregation is asking you to consider a gift to one of its funds as follows:

  • Upper Kent/Kincardine United Church, Building/Memorial Fund
  • Melville United Church Cemetery Fund
  • Kincardine Upper Kent United Church Local Operations Fund

Thank you so much for considering a donation. You may send your cheque to :

Gathering of the Scots, 25-27 May 2012, Perth-Andover


This gallery contains 18 photos.

A beautiful day and a great festival. Held in a new location closer to town, near the Cenotaph. It’s a lovely setting and gives Perth-Andover a nice push as they come back from the devastating spring flood.
