Welcome to the web site of the Presbytery of Aberdeen and Shetland. The Presbytery was formed on June 1st 2020, when the Presbyteries of Aberdeen and Shetland merged.
We are a diverse Presbytery, marrying together the city of Aberdeen with the islands of Shetland.  There are 30 congregations in the Presbytery.   
On Shetland, there is a single parish with one Kirk Session, but it is made up of a number of Local Churches, each with their own building and Leadership Team.
This website contains information about all the congregations within the Presbytery.  However, if you require additional information either about a congregation or the Presbytery in general, please do not hesitate to contact the Presbytery Office where we will be only too glad to help.
