We are delighted to welcome you back to in-person services of Holy Communion at St Ninian’s. Everyone is welcome, whether you are a familiar face or are new to Aberdeen it will be wonderful to see you. We will be having services at 10:30am every other week on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. Upcoming services are:
26th September- St Ninian’s Day
The Diocese has made a video explaining new social distancing and hygiene measures you can expect to see in churches which can be viewed here.
Please also note that, due to the need to create the necessary distance between household groups within the church, we currently have a much smaller capacity. We may sadly have to stop letting people in once that capacity has been reached. This is obviously not something we want to do, especially in such a friendly and family-like church as St Ninian’s, but we must follow the regulations and keep everyone safe.
Welcome to St Ninian’s Church, 696 King Street, Aberdeen, AB24 1SJ (Find Us Map). We’re an Episcopalian (Anglican) Church based in Seaton in Aberdeen, we’re the closest church to the University Hillhead Halls of residence and have a congregation of small children, students and older adults.
We’d love to see you at a Sunday Service at 10am (more info).

Everyone is welcome to the service, including visitors and people joining us for the first time, and you are invited to stay for more of the day if you would like.
