The Women’s Book Group meet in the Snug at Ma Cameron’s on Thursday 21st June for a bar supper at 6:30pm. This is followed by a discussion about 7.15pm. This month’s book is “Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine” by Gail Honeyman. Anyone interested in coming along is very welcome.


Annual Stated Meeting The Annual meeting of the Congregation will take place in Kings College Chapel at the conclusion of morning worship on Sunday 24th June 2018. The purpose of the meeting is to lay before the congregation the approved Annual Report and Accounts for the year ending 31st December 2017.


CHANGES TO THE CATHEDRAL On Monday 21st May, work begins to remove the concrete floor and to replace the pews in the nave and the choir seating in the Chancel. The work is expected to be completed by the beginning of July.

During this time morning worship will be held at 11am as usual in Kings College Chapel, while evening services will be held at 6pm in the Dunbar Street Hall. While works are being carried out, there will be obviously restrictions on public access.

There will be times, particularly in the early stages, when the Cathedral will be completely closed, but for most of the time, the public will have access to the South Aisle.


easyfundraising.co.uk – Feel Good Shopping Do you shop online? Perhaps you’d consider joining easyfundraising.co.uk where you can help raise funds for St Machar’s Cathedral each time you buy online from thousands of retailers.

You can also make a donation to St Machar’s Cathedral online. Visit www.stmachar.com and click on the ‘DONATE’ button at the bottom right of the screen to donate by PayPal or card. However large or small, all donations made to the church are warmly received and greatly appreciated. Thank you.


We may be in need of your kind help again in the days before re-opening on Sunday 8th July. Please let us know if you would be available.


If you are visiting or relatively new to us, The crèche is along the passage behind the organ. There is a toilet and plentiful

toys; and the service is relayed there. Feel free to take your children through. Visiting children of 5 and over are welcome to join the Sunday School which starts in the church and leaves at the end of the second hymn for lessons in the east gatehouse.


FLOWERS FOR 2018 Mark an anniversary or celebration with flowers in the church.

The 2018 Flower Calendar is at the back of the church. If you haven’t done this before, speak to Patricia Keith, Elspeth Ross or Judith Norton.

Donations of money for the Flower Fund are always welcome. They provide for ‘unclaimed’ Sundays and the more lavish decoration at Easter, Harvest and Christmas.
