Located in the centre of the city of Aberdeen, in the midst of busyness of life, St John’s Church seeks to provide a space for Prayer and Reflection in the beauty and splendour of art, architecture, and above all prayers of the church past, present and the future.

St John’s Church Building

People from all walks of life approach the church for baptism, Christian nurture, affirmation of Christian faith and spiritual direction. There are occasions where people come to celebrate their significant moments in life  such as weddings and reaffirmation of their marriage vows. And there are times when people seek for the comforting presence of God in prayer when they go through life’s crisis of separation from a partnership or loss of a loved one. Prayers are said with the dying, service of farewell and thanksgiving for the departed and service of commemoration in memory of a loved one on the anniversary of their death are often held in the church.

If you wish to visit the church outside of the opening hours of services, please contact the Rector to arrange a visit.
