Summer Services

Pilgrimage is a wonderful Christian tradition of travelling to places of worship. This summer we are going to share in a Summer Pilgrimage on Sunday mornings as we share in joint worship with our sisters and brothers in faith at South Holburn and St Mark's. Please do join the Sunday pilgrimage as we share with one another in worship and fellowship.

Sunday 3 and 10 July, 10:30 a.m. at South Holburn Parish Church, Holburn Street

Sunday 17 and 24 July, 11 a.m. at St Mark's Church, Rosemount Viaduct (parking at Denburn Car Park)

Sunday 31 July and 7 August, 11 a.m. at Ferryhill Parish Church, Fonthill Road

Repurpose Your Recycling!

For this year's Summer Club we are looking for a variety of items that you might otherwise throw into the recycling bin! These will be repurposed to create some amazing craft items.

Please keep them aside and bring along to the church either at worship at the end of the month or at the Coffee Shop which will continue throughout the summer on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. There is a big box in the atrium at the church for all the bits and bobs.

We need:

  • Plastic bottles (1 litre)
  • Milk bottles (1 and 2 litre)
  • Bubble wrap sheets
  • Clear fruit trays and shallow containers (such as cream cheese tubs)
  • Muller Corners plastic tubs
  • Food carry-out plastic trays with their lids

Amazingly, this year, no toilet roll tubes!

Thank you!

The Adventure Cruise Summer Club

It has been too long since our last Summer Club but we are back with a splash as The Adventure Cruise sets sail! Open for Primary children who have completed Primary 1 up through those entering Primary 7, they will embark on a journey across the 'C's as we explore the themes of Choice, Courage, Call, Change, Commitment, and Challenge through drama, bible story, song, games, and crafts.

Beware, there may be pirates ahead!

We have 100 places available for the Summer Club and would love to see your child(ren) join in.

10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Monday to Friday)

10:45 a.m. to 12 noon (Sunday, for all the family)

Please register using the ONLINE FORM.

Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea

To mark the Platinum Jubilee for Her Majesty The Queen, the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years of service, we hosted an Afternoon Tea in the Foyer at Ferryhill Parish Church on Friday 3 June. It was a lovely afternoon and thank you to everyone who made it happen, planning the decorations, baking the treats, serving and creating a lovely atmosphere.

Note that during this weekend there is The Queen's Jubilee Family Picnic planned for Sunday 5 June in Duthie Park from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., hosted by the Lord Provost. This is a free to attend family picnic with live music from the bandstand, children's entertainment, and sports activities. You will need to bring your own picnic, though the Duthie Park Café will be open and can provide take-away afternoon teas.

Please do watch the update from Ministers and Interim Moderators of all the congregations in our future grouping above.

Instant Neighbour Donations

There is a chance for you to donate food for local charity Instant Neighbour at the church each Wednesday and Saturday morning when the Coffee Shop is open. Non perishable food items and toiletries can also be dropped off on Sundays when attending worship. Items will be distributed to vulnerable and housebound people by the charity.

Signing the Lord's Prayer
