25th April at 7pm will be the first of its kind to be held this far north.  Taking part will be St Machar Boy’s Brigade, representatives from Robert Gordon’s Colleg, the High Commissions and from the Lord Lieutenants offices.

Cards and gifts are available at the shop along with new glass crosses and cross stitch cards made by members of the congregation.  Also available is this month’s Life and Work  which celebrates International Women’s day by looking at the changing role of women in the church.

Used Stamps – Please remember to put these in the tray at the west end.  World Mission raised over £4000 last year from used stamps and have just announced the project they will support with funds raised from stamps in 2014. ‘Dorcas’ has just opened its doors as a refuge house in northern Greece to provide a safe haven for women who have suffered domestic violence and their children.  Due to the economic crisis in Greece women are increasingly victimised and have no means to support themselves and their children.  

Life and Work April edition is available now and carries the Easter message from the Moderator and the Big Question for Christians in Scotland regarding the date of Easter.

Service for Anzac Day in Aberdeen

A service of remembrance and reflection to mark Anzac Day will be held in St Machars Cathedral on Friday 25th April at 7pm.


The celebration of Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day we remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for the sense of the national identities of the two countries.
