We are open for Sunday Worship
Midstocket Parish Church Service
The Sunday service from Midstocket church will be available here from the following Wednesday including the hymns that were sung during the service. Even though not all of us can meet together in the church at the moment, we are trying to make sure as many people as possible still have access to the service.

Maggie's Culture Crawl
We were delighted to welcome Maggie's Culture Crawl back to the Church Sanctuary for a very special visit. Our 'in house' orchestra Aberdeen City Orchestra, was rehearsing for the orchestra's 40th Anniversary Concert to be held the next day in The Music Hall. The 'Culture Crawlers' were able to attend this open rehearsal, light candles in remembrance if wished, and sit and listen to the rehearsal for as long as they wanted. The music making of A.C.O. was superb and many of our visitors said they were 'blown away' by the event. Many thanks to all involved.
Aberdeen Make Music Day
A week of Music Making at Midstocket Church (during week we have welcomed over 400 visitors) Granite City Chorus and Albacapella gave a concert in the Sanctuary on Tuesday 21st June as part of Make Music Day U.K. It was a joyous event which all present appreciated so much. Granite City Chorus now rehearse weekly at Midstocket on Tuesday evenings and we regard them as our 'in house' choir! Congratulations to all members of the chorus and to Albacapella for their success in the North East of Scotland Music Festival last week.
These are the pictures the people are sending in. It's lovely to share them.

Our Office can still be contacted by phone and email at the usual numbers.
My name is Tanya Webster, and it is my pleasure at the start of 2020 to introduce myself as the new minister of Midstocket Parish Church.
I was born in Zambia to a Scottish mother and an English father and was brought up in South Africa.
I did my first degree in Accounting and auditing in South Africa and worked for the accounting firm KPMG in Pietermatitzburg near Durban for several years before moving to Scotland.
In 2004, I experienced a call to Church ministry, and was accepted by the Church of Scotland as a candidate for full-time ministry.
I graduated from Glasgow University in 2009, and after a year as a probationary minister in Kirriemuir, I was ordained and inducted as minister at Ardrossan Park Church.
I was minster there and Moderator of the Presbytery of Ardrossan before hearing God call me to Midstocket Church.
I am aware that being in the ministry can be challenging and rewarding and requires leadership, energy and compassion.
Midstocket Church has regular opportunities for worship, and a wide range of community activities. I hope to meet you at some of these events during 2020.
Our journey begins together.
