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 (but see below), 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.

We are currently missing our Priest, Dr Heddle , who was advised to take time off to rest.  We are praying for him and hope God will bless us with his return soon.  In the meantime, we are celebrating Morning Prayer each Sunday at 11a.m. based on The Scottish Prayer Book and led by members of our congregation.
