Latest Update

Our Congregation

Peterculter Parish Church is part of the Aberdeen West Parish Grouping comprising Peterculter, Cults, Mannofield, Ruthrieston West and Craigiebuckler Churches.

We have had a vacancy in this parish since October 2022 following the departure of Rev Dr John Ferguson.

On 1st November 2023 Peterculter Parish Church formed a union with Drumoak-Durris Church. The new church will continue to be called Peterculter Parish Church.

Worship and Pastoral Care

Following the union with Drumoak-Durris Church on 1st November 2023, all Sunday morning services now take place in Culter Kirk at 10.30am. All are welcome at any of our services.

Rev. Corné Randall has been conducting worship on a regular basis during our vacancy, but has now taken up a different role within the Aberdeen West Parish Grouping as an Assistant Minister working with Rev Keith Blackwood at Mannofield Church. Rev. Susan Sutherland has agreed to act as Locum providing us with two and a half days support a week for the remainder of our vacancy and will be conducting our Sunday worship.
