St John's Church - Crown Terrace
Every Wednesday at 7.30pm
This handsome city centre Anglican (Scottish Episcopal) church holds a regular short service of Holy Communion 7.30pm on Wednesday evenings using the beatutiful Taize chants. The service is very informal whilst also being prayerful and spiritual.

Warm Welcome for International Episcopalians
With a growing number of international Anglican students coming over to study at RGU the Scottish Episcopal Church would like to warmly invite them to participate in the life of a local congregation. Information about Sunday and weekday service times can be found on the diocesan website. Alternatively the chaplain can provide help and guidance on finding the right church for you. Please e-mail email@example.com.
Got in too deep?
In any city most religious groups are well meaning and run ethically but occasionally some are not so healthy. Such groups can prey on people's vulnerabilities and especially their need for friendship and meaning. If you have recently joined a group and are uneasy and unsure then please do not hesitate to contact the university chaplain for non-judgemental guidance.
Alternatively you can ring/email the London based chairty INFORM who are very good at providing unbiased information on new religious movements.
INFORM is an independent charity that was founded in 1988 by Professor Eileen Barker with the help of British Home Office funding and the support of the mainstream Churches. It is based at the London School of Economics. The primary aim of INFORM is to help people through providing them with accurate, balanced, up-to-date information about new and/or alternative religious or spiritual movements.
The most informative window into what is on and happening in the Aberdeen Churches must be the Aberdeen Christian Diary. Each month is packed with events around the city from a range of churches.
Got any news! If you want your news item to be considered for inclusion in this page and the on-line newsletter then please email the chaplain on firstname.lastname@example.org.
