What will you find if you join us one Sunday? You'll find people just like you, single people, married people, young people and older people, students, children and teenagers, as well as people literally from all over the world. We have our hopes and fears, our faults and our weaknesses, just like you. You'll fit right in! We have a large ministry team at St Columba's and we focus on letting people use the gifts God has given them. Lots of us share in worship leading. The music is great and we think God likes it! That's why we do it!! Our minister is a preacher who loves to teach us about the Bible. We also have a good programme for children and for teenagers, and a Youth Pastor who makes it all happen.

If you're looking for a church family, and you'd like to know God better, then we'd love to meet you.

Holy Communion on last Sunday of month and High Seasons. (T) (W)
More Info Open daily 9 am to 5 pm April to October inclusive; 10 am to 4 pm November to March inclusive.

Located in historic Old Aberdeen, the Cathedral Church of St Machar occupies a site where there has been Christian witness for almost 1500 years.
From 1131 until the Reformation of 1560, St Machar's was the seat of the Roman Catholic bishops of Aberdeen. Episcopal bishops served there between 1610 and 1638 and again between 1662 and 1689. Since then St Machar's has been a Presbyterian church.

Open every day of the year, St Machar's draws around 30,000 visitors each year from all over the world. It is, however, not merely an impressive ancient building, but a living, vibrant church with a great deal of activity.

A cathedral is a place for the big occasion and St Machar's hosts several of these each year. It is also a place for music and the acoustics at St Machar's are flattering to choir, singer and instrumentalist. Sunday morning services are enhanced by anthems from the cathedral choir and many concerts take place within its walls.
On one Sunday each month (usually the last Sunday, but check the Cathedral website) from September to June the evening service takes the form of Music and Six when musical talent from Aberdeen ad elsewhere allows the congregation to appreciate and reflect on the Word addressed to them through music. On other Sunday evenings an examination of poems and prayers underlines a commitment to exploring the contribution of the Arts to one's understanding of God and or world.

St Machar's provides for all ages with a crèche, Sunday School, study groups and women's group.
St Machar's can be reached by bus Nos. 14, 19 and 20 and is a short walk from King Street buses 1 and 2.
