We are happy that our Priest, Dr Heddle, is recovering. When he is unable to attend we  celebrate  Morning Prayer  led by a member of the congregation.  Dr Heddle celebrates the Eucharist when he attends.

The Stoneywood Scouts do a great job helping us to keep the grounds tidy after the autumn leaves, broken branches etc. With their input and our grass cutter the grounds look much improved. They have given us two big planters which stand outside the front doors giving a nice welcome. 

St Machar’s also  has friendly ecumenical links with  other Church congregations in Bucksburn, Newhills and Dyce.  We hold some events together notably the annual World Day of Prayer on the first Friday of  March
