Letter from Rev Will Stalder
Letter from the Moderator of the Church of Scotland

We are a Church of Scotland congregation in Aberdeenshire. Our churches are in the villages of Udny Green and Pitmedden in the north-east of Scotland, in God's beautiful countryside 20 minutes drive from the city of Aberdeen. We would love to have you join us for church this weekend but as you all know, you cannot. On these pages you can find more information about our services, events, and our organisations. We do hope you find this website a friendly and personal introduction to our parish. However, we do realise that this is just a website and the best way to get to know us is to come along when the current restrictions and social distancing are a fading memory.
We promise you a very warm welcome and look forward to seeing you soon.
To hear previous Sunday's messages go to the Audio Sermons page and pick a message from the pull-downlist.
