Our Mission

St. John’s offers an atmosphere of welcome and acceptance in which people can grow in the love and knowledge of God, nurtured by private prayer and public worship.

We are a congregation that comes from many different walks of life, discovering together what it means to worship, love and serve God in the power of the Holy Spirit, to grow up together into the fullness of the stature of Christ, and to love those whom God has given us: fellow Christians, neighbors, coworkers, and strangers. You are welcome to join us on this journey, whoever you are.

What We Believe

We believe in a loving, liberating and life-giving God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that in Jesus Christ God reached out to us in love and came to meet us.
We believe that through his life, death and ressurection Jesus saved the world.

As a church we seek to be scripturally faithful; to live out the Gospel in word and action, to be inclusive and welcoming to everyone; and to be a place in which allows all people to grasp the breadth and depth of the love of Jesus Christ.

Who we are

St. John’s Church provides a strong social network which includes pastoral care for one another. We encourage all members on the congregational roll to be supportive, grow in faith and gain a better understanding of who we are as part of the Scottish Episcopal Church, whose history extends back to the beginning of Christianity.

We are a diverse and welcoming church with people of all ages, including those who were born in Aberdeen and those who have moved here. Our church includes children, students, young people and adults of all ages. We have deep roots in the community that continue to reach out to all people, including those who are living on the fringes.

We are a community that seeks to grow in Faith together. Each year we run a Lent course in the run up to Easter, and, usually in the winter months, we run a Bible Study group. We hold an Autumn Fair each year and most months we have a walking group that goes out for a leisurely hike to enjoy the nearby countryside or beaches.

We have a number of children who regularly attend. The Church Hall has a toilet suitable for people with disabilities and the Church is accessible to those in wheelchairs.

You are very welcome to join us


We are making new efforts to reach out within our community and beyond. “Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your pegs.” (Isaiah 54:1)
