 Ferryhill Parish Church

The building is open every morning and you will always be welcome. If it is your first visit you will want to spend some time in the Sanctuary of the church itself. Its internal architecture is graceful and provides a wonderful setting for one of Aberdeen's finest churches. Designed by Duncan McMillan for the Free Church 1874 in early Gothic-style with a tall square bell-tower with octagonal spire. Side galleries were added in 1896 and then reduced in 1994 when the sanctuary was re-ordered. In 2000 we saw significant upgrades being carried out which required a huge amount of fund-raising effort over the preceding years.

Anne Begg MP expressed her admiration for the additional accommodation that was created at Ferryhill Parish Church when she declared the new facilities officially open at a special celebration on Sunday June 4th 2000. As she pulled the cord to unveil the plaque which now sits above the hall entrance, the long-silent church bell began to toll, and a specially composed "Fanfare for Ferryhill" echoed through the building, signifying that the Kirk's long established tradition of service to the community was entering a new phase.
