Welcome to Midstocket Parish Church in Aberdeen, Scotland. We are a large, enthusiastic and energetic congregation, engaged on a range of activities with our community as you will see if you browse our web site. See What's On, News, In the Community, Worship and Exploring Faith, Life Events, and About Us
At the moment we are in vacancy as our minister recently moved to another charge, but we have a good team, a locum minister in place, and everything is "business as usual" until we find a new minister.
Our Sunday services are held at 10.30am after which tea, coffee and other refreshments are served. Have a look at "What's On" to see what else is happening in the Church, and check out some of the highlighted events below which are coming up soon.

Photo-a-Day Challenge for Lent
Jay Thomas, our Youth Minister, has devised a Photo-a-Day challenge for Lent. Folks of all ages across the 4 congregations Jay works for are encouraged to participate in this. It’s something that can be done individually or collectively as groups or families. It's an opportunity to journey through the variety of emotions and life experiences and hopefully encourages the discipline of having our eyes open.
WEST END CHURCHES LENT STUDIES 2019
West End Churches Lent Studies 2019 programme has launched. The Lent series of lectures, based on material from St Martins in the Fields in London, will focus on the theme of ENCOUNTER.
How are we changed by the people, events or objects we encounter?
How do prejudices shift?
How are new insights born?
In each of these lectures, prominent and inspirational leaders, thinkers and practitioners will be speaking from a personal but also public perspective about the way such encounters have changed the course of their lives.
The lectures will take place on Wednesdays from 13th March to 10th April inclusive in 2 sessions: in Holburn West Church from 2 pm to 4 pm and in The Dutch Mill Hotel from 7.30 pm to 9 pm. Evening participants will have to watch the lectures online beforehand at the YouTube channel of St Martin in the Fields.
