||Following a decision by Aberdeen Presbytery in relation to its new Plan for the Presbytery in June 2013 the Aberdeen City Centre Parish Grouping was wound up, subject only to agreement on a Basis of Dissolution which was voted on by the three churches in October 2013 and approved. The three churches however have decided to continue to work together and will remain committed to the Big Issue initiative which is staffed by volunteers from all three. For the moment these pages will be retained but may be deleted when the new arrangements come into play.
As of October 2014 no new initiatives have been brought forward but St Mark’s (like all congregations) is now under a Presbytery Review. On top of that we have been asked to join a group of other churches (Kirk of St Nicholas Uniting, Midstocket, Rubislaw & Queens Cross) to ‘think out of the box’ about the future of the Church in Aberdeen.
This therefore seems like the appropriate time to terminate the Grouping Pages.
The ‘Abigail‘ Pages will however be retained as a source of information on the work of that organisation.
