Changes to Services for Covid-19 Lockdown and Level 4 Restrictions
With the announcement on 4th January 2021 by the Scottish Government of further restrictions to control the spread of Covid-19, all Sunday Services in the Church building are now cancelled until further notice. We look forward to resuming Sunday Services once restrictions are eased sufficiently and we feel conditions are right to re-commence. In the meantime we continue with our neighbouring churches - Queen's Cross, Rubislaw, Holburn West and St Mark's to bring you a short recorded service every Sunday morning at 10:30 am. You can view an archive of previous recordings and you can also subscribe to our YouTube channel if you want to receive regular notifications of new videos.
We will also be publishing our own Midstocket short services on our web site and Facebook. You can see archives of our previous Midstocket videos.
Joint Recorded Video Service
Welcome to our joint recorded service on Sunday 21st February 2021 from Queen's Cross, Holburn West, Rubislaw, St Mark's and Midstocket Churches in Aberdeen.

We are all getting used to socially distanced or online worship but we miss our regular chats with the members of the Midstocket Church Family. Every Sunday from 3rd January 2021, whether you are worshiping online or in person, you can join Midstocket friends on Zoom online or by phone for a catch up on news. The chat will be open from around 11:45 onwards to allow Tanya time to get home after the morning church service. Zoom details below.

Pancake Café Church
On Tuesday 16th February we had a Pancake Café Church on Zoom. We all had a lot of fun with the amazing quiz prepared by Sheona. We enjoyed the company and pancakes with tea/coffee. Thank you everyone for joining. And we are already looking forward to the next Café Church on Friday 26th March at 10.30am.
We met on zoom and had a good catch up, finding time to discuss the following books:
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. Whilst many of our activities are on hold because of Coronavirus restrictions, have a look around the web site to see the typical activities which centre around our Church.

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.
