Community Groups

Gourdon contains many prominent community groups:

Gourdon Mission Hall

Gourdon Mission Hall [4] is linked to Arbuthnott, Bervie and Kinneff Church. Services are held every Sunday at 6pm. The parish minister, Rev Dennis Rose, takes the service once a month with guest speakers taking the other weeks.

Local Radio

Alongside the commercial enterprise of the local newspaper, The Mearns Leader, Gourdon has a Local Community Radio Station in Mearns FM. Broadcasting from nearby Stonehaven in the Townhall, Mearns FM helps to keep Gourdon up to date with local and charity events, as well as playing a wee bit of music. Staffed completely by volunteers, Mearns FM is run as a not for profit organisation, broadcasting under a Community Radio licence, with a remit to provide local focus news events and programming. Jointly funded by local adverts and local and national grants. Mearns FM has one of the largest listening areas of any Community Radio Station owing to the Mearns' distributed population, Mearns FM was set up to try to bring these distant communities together.[5]
