ST MACHAR’S SCOTTISH EPISCOPAL CHURCH
“FOLLOWING JESUS AND MAKING HIM KNOWN”
St Machar’s Church, Bucksburn is situated just off the A96 on the outskirts of Aberdeen. It is a congregation within the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney, and in full communion with Anglican Churches from around the world.
Holy Eucharist is celebrated at 11:00 every Sunday, Christmas Day and at 19:30 on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Ascension Day. An informal service of readings and carols is held on Christmas Eve. A service of Compline and Shorter Litany is held on Good Friday.
On the first Sunday of every month the service incorporates modern translations of readings and is followed by a time of fellowship and refreshments in St Machar’s annex. Click on the ‘News’ button for further details of this and other events.
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.
The visit to Westhill Community Church on Saturday 27 August including a wonderful afternoon tea in their ‘Green pastures cafe’ was a great success. We are very grateful to Becky and all at Green Pastures for their hospitality and the most illuminating guided tour.
