Facebook Page: We are now regularly updating the Church Facebook page. Please visit Midmar and Echt Churches Together and ‘like’ to receive updates.

Dates for your diary:

Look out for our Church Stand at the Echt Show on Saturday July 11. A chance for a blether or a quiet break with the kids to colour in pictures and have a welcome seat.

A Summer Club for youngsters will run during the week beginning August 10. Activities, running on every week-day morning in the week before schools return, will include the chance to ‘perform’ and perhaps even provide a welcome break for mums and dads who will have spent 5 weeks ‘entertaining’ their children. If your own children or grand-children are interested or, if you would like to help out in some way, please speak to Elspeth or look out for more information in our Church stand at the Echt Show.

Maryculter Trinity Church of Scotland

Name Change: It is often said: What’s in a name?

Well in answer to the above question in terms of the Banchory- Devenick & Maryculter/ Cookney Church of Scotland it is a whole mouthful.

So after careful deliberation and prayer it has been resolved to change the name to Maryculter Trinity Church of Scotland.

A name which seeks to uphold the Trinitarian nature of the Christian Church as well as honour the past history of the three parish churches that form the basis of this union.

So it may be a change of name but by no means do we want to forget our roots or the long history of faithful service by the three Parish churches. So look out for the new kid on the block!
