Who are we?

Where are we?

Our church building is located at 539a Holburn Street, not far from Bridge of Dee in Aberdeen.

The Church in Scotland

The Church of Scotland is our country’s national church and as such the ministry of South Holburn extends beyond our own membership. It is a joy to share in celebrations such as baptisms and weddings and it is a privilege to offer pastoral care in times of loss and bereavements.
Come and Worship With Us
People of all ages are welcome to come and join us for worship at 10.30am on Sunday mornings. Our Sunday School and Creche normally meet while the service is in progress.
Holy Communion
Holy communion is celebrated on Easter Sunday and also on the last Sundays of January, June and October
The Church of Scotland
The Church of Scotland is one of the largest organisations in the country. We have around 600,000 members, with many thousands more regularly involved in our local congregations and in our wider work. More than 100,000 children and young people also take part in a range of our church-based activities, led by a team of 15,000 volunteers.
Baptisms & Weddings
The minister is happy to discuss baptisms or weddings with those who wish to know more.

Contact us for further information.

The Presbytery of Aberdeen
The Presbytery of Aberdeen is one of forty-six Presbyteries in Scotland. It represents and supervises the work of thirty-seven Church of Scotland Congregations within the civil bounds of the City of Aberdeen.

Sunday Services Cancelled

Following advice from the Government on controlling the spread of Covid-19, Aberdeen Presbytery has instructed all churches to suspend services for the foreseeable future.

Therefore there will be no Sunday worship at South Holburn Church until further notice.

Members will be supported by regular phone calls and updates.

Videos and items of worship will appear on the website, so check regularly for new content.

Please keep safe during this time and look out for one another.


Aberdeen City Council has launched a free emergency telephone helpline to prioritise support to its most vulnerable and at-risk customers during the coronavirus outbreak.

The telephone number 0800 0304 713 will be staffed from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday from Tuesday 24 March until further notice.

The emergency number is for those hit hardest by the coronavirus outbreak and unable to obtain help from their existing support networks, in these unprecedented times. Members of the emergency helpline team are ready to provide welfare and financial advice and support, including what to do if you are struggling to get food or pay bills. Similar advice and information are also available on issues such as housing, health, food, heating, finance and schools on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) page of the Council’s website, which is being regularly updated.

Kilt Walk


Adeline Gray

Hi family and friends, as you know Mike usually does a Kiltwalk, but this year Debbie is taking his place. The walk has been postponed due to the coronavirus, Mike Ava and I were going to do the “wee wander”.  The kiltwalk organisers have indicated that they would like to pay out to the various charities sponsored as soon as possible, in order to do this they are asking for Aberdeen walk sponsor money to be donated by May 5th, if you would like to sponsor us, Debbie has a giving page which you can access. The Kiltwalk organisers have also indicated that any money raised by this time will qualify for a 50% top-up {for example £100 would have a return of £150} you would still be asked to gift aid any  donations if applicable.  When the reorganised date is scheduled we would probably have the usual coffee morning, looking forward to that!!! Many thanks for your support.



During July we will be joining with Ferryhill Church for worship.  Our normal Virtual Vestry will not run on Wednesday Nights.  Instead we will all join for a Virtual Coffee Time after Sunday services online at 12 noon, using the Zoom software.  If you want to join us just click the link below.
