Udny & Pitmedden Parish Church - Church of Scotland

The Church of Scotland Head Office had decided that church services should be cancelled from 17th March 2020 until further notice in order to help minimise the risk of spreading the Coronavirus.
Both Udny Green and Pitmedden churches would be closed and all church events wold be cancelled until it was considered safe to resume normal services.
The good news is that restrictions are being eased
and we shall be able to worship together on September 6th
providing we follow guidelines issued by the Church of Scotland.

The charge of Udny & Pitmedden has been vacant for a while and so normal services are not quite as normal as we would have liked them to be. We are in the process of inviting the Reverend Gert Janse van Rensburg to preach as sole nominee. With all the current restrictions concerning meeting in large numbers in enclosed spaces, a conventional service is out of the question but, God willing, an alternative solution will be found.

Please note that you cannot register your vote for the proposed new minister until AFTER you have heard the candidate preach,
either in person or online.
Any voting papers returned before 11am on 13th September may be considered null and void.

We are still very fortunate to have Alicia Forsyth ministering to us at this time as well as having the Reverend Will Stalder from a neighbouring parish watching over us as our interim moderator.

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.
