Our Vision in St Machar’s

In 2000 the Kirk Session of St Machar’s formulated and in 2007 revised a mission statement. This statement, to which the congregation commits itself annually, expresses both the faith and the aspiration of the people in this place, and it acts as a measure of how we do.

We, the  Kirk Session and people of St Machar’s, reaffirm our trust in the sovereign love of God, revealed most fully in Jesus Christ whose love for the world is declared in the gospels and is continued in the ministry of the Church. We participate in this ministry through the celebration of word and sacrament, through lives of prayer and devotion, through education, nurture and pastoral care, through costly service to each other and the world, and more particularly in welcoming the stranger, the outcast and the sinner into the community of God’s people, in healing mind, body and spirit, in sharing our resources of time, talents, and money, and in gathering new disciples.

We celebrate our heritage as we use our historic building, music and the arts, as witnesses to the glory of God and the life and suffering of our Lord. We seek to attain Christian unity in partnership with the churches in north-east Aberdeen, and through participation in the world church. As an eco-congregation we further good practice ourselves and seek to extend an understanding of our responsibilities to the created universe.

In these commitments we seek to take part in Jesus’ ministry to the world and its peoples.
