Believing in God’s Word and Spirit
The Kirk of Kildaire Presbyterian church in Cary is a safe and gracious community that welcomes you to explore your faith. Guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ, we strive to accept, love and support each person, develop each member’s unique gifts and grow disciples through worship, Christian education, fellowship and mission.
At the Kirk we feel God has called us together to praise God, to grow in our faith, to love and care for one another and to share God’s love and care for people in our community and world. Whether you are a newcomer or a member, we want you to find a place to belong and become involved in our family of faith.
We hope you will join us in worship and find a place to call home within the warm embrace of our church family.
