St Devenick’s Church
St Devenick’s is a warm and welcoming church in Bieldside, Aberdeen. We seek to be God’s people, bringing our lives to him in worship and service, recognising that only in Jesus can we find the personal salvation that allows us to live by grace as God’s children. We look to the Holy Spirit to be at work amongst us, enabling us to grow in the image of Christ and reach out with God’s love to our community, family, friends and colleagues. We have a long tradition of Bible based preaching as an important part of the life of St Devenick’s and we value wrestling with scripture on the issues and challenges of contemporary life. We see ourselves as a church with a definite evangelical ethos, exploring life in the Spirit. We are part of the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney in the Scottish Eoiscopal Church.
