Welcome to the homepage of the Presbytery of Aberdeen

The vision of the Church of Scotland is to be a church which seeks to inspire the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic worshipping, witnessing, nurturing and serving communities.


Our Presbytery covers the same area as the city council boundaries. Presbytery meetings take place in different church buildings each time and a full list of the dates and locations can be found below.

Visit to Aberdeen of the Moderator of the General Assembly

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland will be visiting the Presbytery of Aberdeen during April 2015.

Every Presbytery in the Church of Scotland has an official visit from the Moderator of the General Assembly every ten years. This year it is Aberdeen’s turn for such a visit and the Rt Rev John Chalmers will be in Aberdeen from Saturday 18th till Sunday 26th April.

During his time in Aberdeen he will be visiting industries, companies, the Army Reserve Centre and charities along with several churches. He will also be shown that Aberdeen has pockets of deprivation as well as areas of wealth – he will be given a balanced picture of life in our Presbytery.

His first official engagement is on the morning of Sunday 19th April when he will worship in Rubislaw Church. At 7 pm that same day, Mr Chalmers will preach at an Ecumenical Service, to be held in St Andrew’s Cathedral, King Street. All members are very welcome to attend.

The annual Presbytery Service will be held in Newhills Parish on Thursday 23rd April at 7 pm. At this service the Moderator will not only preach but will present long service certificates to elders, choir members and others. This is open to everyone and it is hoped that many people will come along to this special service.

During the week, don’t be surprised if you bump into Mr Chalmers at your work or school, in hospital, in the shopping centre – or even on Union Street late on Friday evening, with the local Street Pastors!


The web site contains information about all the congregations within the Presbytery. However, if you require additional information either about a congregation or the Presbytery in general, please do not hesitate to contact the Presbytery Office where we will be only too glad to help.


The Presbytery meets eight times a year and dates of these meetings can be found at the bottom of this page. A summary of items discussed can be found by clicking on the date of the meeting.
