    Welcome to the website of Stonehaven South Church of Scotland.

    As a congregation we are  Reformed in theology and Presbyterian by organisation but we hope that those of different traditions or none will find a warm welcome at our worship services, our social events, whenever and wherever you meet us.   

    Our church buildings are located in Cameron Street, Stonehaven but you will find us in many other areas of the town alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ: working with staff and pupils in our schools, leading services in local residential care homes, visiting the bereaved and the sick at home or in hospital. Both as a linked congregation and as individual church members we aim to live out our faith as part of the local community of Stonehaven and beyond. 

     

    HARVEST THANKSGIVING

    Sunday 25th Sept 10.30am Harvest Thanksgiving Service at Dunnottar

    Sunday 25th Sept 2.30pm   Elderly and Housebound Harvest Service at St Bridget’s followed by afternoon tea.  Please note that the service itself will last no more than 30 minutes. Residents of local care homes regularly join us for this special afternoon. I would however also urge elders and other members to invite, encourage, even accompany family members, neighbours and friends to attend. If help with transport is needed please contact Ros Marshall .

    Sunday 2nd Oct 10.30am Harvest Praise at the South with the Granite City Brass Ensemble.

    Harvest gifts:

    -          Tinned and dried goods will be given to the Cyrenians who care for the homeless in Aberdeen city and shire. 

    -          Any monies will be forwarded to Suresh and India Village Ministries. [The current focus of our fund raising for IVM is in support of the construction of a boys dormitory building.]

    -          Any fresh flowers and produce will be distributed among local care homes, those attending the service at St Bridget’s and others in the local community as a token of our continuing care and support. 

    Help !!!

    With the current low number of active elders and visitors your help is needed to distribute our harvest gifts locally. If you can offer some assistance, even if only to one household, please join us in the church after morning worship on October 2nd.

    Thank you.
