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.

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.

Statement

The following is a Joint Statement issued on behalf of the Aberdeen Mosque and Islamic Centre and the Presbytery of Aberdeen, Church of Scotland. Today, June 30th 2014, the Imam of the Aberdeen Mosque and Islamic Centre, Imam Ibrahim Alwawi, and the Moderator of the Presbytery of Aberdeen, the Rev Hugh Wallace, met to make a joint appeal to all young people in Aberdeen to be aware of the dangers of religious extremism. The Imam and the Moderator stated:

We wish to express our agreement that religion should never be used for the purposes of extremist violence. We believe that it is essential that we should work together to protect young people in Aberdeen from being exploited by those who seek to recruit them to engage in such violence.
Whilst we acknowledge that Islam and Christianity has a number of differences, we would together express the importance of peaceful co-existence amongst all races and communities and the need for human beings to resolve their differences without resorting to violence. We hope that the people of Aberdeen will recognise this common bond between our faiths.

The Presbytery of Aberdeen warmly welcomes the stance which the Imam and the leadership of the Muslim community in Aberdeen has taken in reaction to recent events. The Imam also expresses his appreciation of the support towards the Muslim community from the Church of Scotland in Aberdeen.

Malawi Visitors

We are very pleased that on Thursday 29 August 2014, 5 members of the Blantyre Presbytery of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian in Malawi will arrive in Aberdeen for a two week stay.

Their visit is a part of our celebration of the tenth year of the Aberdeen Malawi Partnership. On Tuesday 2nd September, we will hear from our Malawian guests as they address members of Aberdeen Presbytery. During their stay they will worship with us in our churches, share in bible study, prayer, and fellowship. They will also have the opportunity to join us in our ministry to our communities by visiting schools, homeless shelters, and working with the Street Pastors. Of course, they will also get time to view the wonderful sights of Scotland, visiting the Braemar Games and travelling to Blantyre.

We pray that our time together will be a valuable experience that will deepen our faith, strengthen our fellowship, and further our relationship for years to come.
