Who we are

Welcome to Garthdee Parish Church

Are you looking for a new church home? A place where you can explore and grow your faith? Consider trying out one of our services.

We are sure you will find

a warm welcome
good conversation
a creative environment

and a group of people who just may be looking for the same things you are.

You are welcome to attend any or all of these Services. If you are new to the area or visiting, we hope you will not feel awkward about visiting us.

Sunday Morning Services

Our main worship service of the week. We meet at 11 am each Sunday morning finishing at around 12 noon with a warm cuppa and a friendly chat afterwards.

Worship within the Church of Scotland is for everybody, regardless of age, nationality, status or ability. At the moment we are without a permanent minister and many services are led by ministers from other churches. That gives us the advantage of being helped to see God’s work in us through different eyes. It also means we are able to be a place where God can speak to us more clearly no matter what is happening around us.

Regular services of worship are of course at the heart of the life of our Church. Whilst the minister is responsible for leading worship increasingly elders and other church members are involved in both the planning and helping to lead worship.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion, also called the Lord’s Supper, is open to all those who love the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Communion celebration services for 2018 are

11th March
10th June
9th September
9th December

We look forward to sharing the bread and wine with you in the near future.

Living the Questions Study Group.

Have you ever wondered what faith is? what it should be and how to live in it? Now is YOUR opportunity to explore this issues in a supportive environment. A monthly small group experience which allows you to explore faith in today’s world.

RGU Students Connect Evening Fellowship

Each Sunday we have a fellowship meeting especially for Robert Gordon University students (but not exclusively RGU).

We meet from 7:30 to around 9 pm.

Starting with a pizza (or similar) we offer a chance for a brief fellowship get together before a time of worship and discussion/teaching. We will also be having a monthly international dinner where we meet together to enjoy potentially a different international theme.

The power of Christian prayer You are...
You are the shade in the heat, You are shelter in the cold, You are eyes to the blind, You are a staff to the pilgrim, You are an island in the sea, You are a stronghold upon land, You are healing to the sick. You are the luck of every joy, You are the light of the sun's beam, You are the door of lordly welcome, You are the pole star of guidance, You are the step of the roe of the height, You are the step of the white-faced mare, You are the grace of the swimming swan, You are the jewel in each mystery.
