We think of our Sunday morning worship service as one of two core elements if you want to be part of Gerrard Street. The other core element is our Connect Groups.

We meet in our church building on Gerrard Street each Sunday at 11.00am.

It can be daunting going to a new church for the first time or after having been away for a while. We try to make our Sunday services as welcoming as we can.

What should I expect?


Our services are quite informal so you can sit wherever you want to and wear whatever you want.

Warm and welcoming

We aim to be a welcoming place where folks coming for the first time will feel comfortable. We are all glad you have come. In the unlikely event that you sit beside someone who doesn’t talk to you, maybe they are just shy or having a bad day. Or maybe they are new like you. Don’t be afraid to make the first move.

Sung Worship

We love to sing at Gerrard Street and we usually sing a mixture of older hymns and more modern songs. Our worship is led by a band that usually includes guitars, keyboards, drums and voices.


We also love to hear God’s word preached and there is usually a sermon that lasts somewhere between 25 and 35 minutes. Our preaching style is usually “expository” which simply means that we start with a passage from the Bible and then explain what it means and how it applies to us today.

The Lord’s Supper or Communion

On the first Sunday in the month, we take bread and wine, elements that symbolise the death of Jesus for us. If you are already a believer, you can join with us freely. If you are not a believer yet, please don’t be embarrassed and simply pass the elements on to the next person.


During the service, members of the church will have an opportunity to give money (though many will do this directly through bank transfers). If you are a newcomer, please do not feel obliged to give – this is for people who call Gerrard Street their home church.

Tea and Coffee

Our services usually last 80-90 minutes and when it finishes, we serve good quality tea and coffee in the East Wing where you can meet folks over a refreshment.

What’s on for children and teenagers?

Children and teenagers are an important part of our church family. They participate in the first part of our worship at Gerrard Street, before going to their age-specific groups.

Our creche is for 0-2 year olds, 3-5 year olds head over to Little Lighthouse, kids in P1-P6 have Lighthouse and young folk in P7-S3 go to Creed.

You can find more details about these ministries in Kids and Youth.

Where are we?

We meet in Aberdeen city centre in Gerrard Street, just off George Street.

Parking and Transportation

Although we are located in the heart of Aberdeen, parking is free on the street until 1.00pm on Sundays. Parking on single yellow lines is free all day.

In addition, there is a council owned car park that they kindly allow us to use on Sundays. When you turn into Gerrard Street, take the first right and park anywhere in this car park.
