Welcome to Holburn West Church - a Church of Scotland Parish Church in Aberdeen City.

Our mission is that our activities; organisational structures, resources, and suite of buildings should open us to:

  • God's love, strengthen our love for God and give us faith to stand firm as Jesus' disciples;
  • everyone in the local and world-wide church family, and strengthen our love for each other;
  • all ages and conditions of residents in our parish, especially those in need, strengthening our love for them and our ability to share the gospel with them;
  • the world especially to the poor and the oppressed, strengthening our love for it and our ability to oppose the powers of evil.

Holburn West Church is partnered with the church of St. Columba CCAP in Blantyre, Malawi
