A Short History
In 1849, a piece of land was acquired from Gordon Estates, and there, for £800 an Episcopal Church was built and dedicated as Christ Church designed by the Architect Thomas Mackenzie. A grade B listed building with attractive simple nave and chancel, tall narrow lancets and octagonal spirelet, harled with freestone dressings including corbel course, global skew puts and bellcote. Its architectural merit and charm is recognised by our Bishop Mark Strange calling it “his Little Cathedral in the East”. Christ Church is within the Conservation Area of Huntly and complements the other fine buildings within this historic town.
The interior is simple and shows traces of a previous decorative scheme. In the roof panels are barbed quatrefoils containing open bibles with a text and in the chancel where the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer and the Ten Commandments on a gilt background.

The church also acts as the venue for occasional series of lunchtime lectures and art exhibitions, as well as serving as a place for quiet and meditation.
