“Building meaningful relationships with God, each other and the community…Reaching up, reaching in, reaching out.”
My name is Manson Merchant and for the past ten years I have had the privilege of being the minister in Dyce. I grew up in Bucksburn, studied at Aberdeen University and have ministered these past twenty six years in Inverkip, Newmachar and here in Dyce. I also served for two years as a youth minister in South Carolina in the USA. I have been married to Sheena for thirty five years and have three grown up children.
Dyce Parish Church is a Presbyterian Church, part of the Church of Scotland and a congregation within the Presbytery of Aberdeen. As God's people we are committed to sharing the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since the 8th century there has been a Christian presence in Dyce and thankfully that presence still continues to this day. The message has remained the same throughout the centuries; a message centred on the love of God, a love that compelled him to give his only Son, to save us all from our sin.
As a church family we gather each Sunday to worship God, to offer him our praise and to seek his blessing for ourselves and for our families and friends. Our worship tend to be relaxed in nature and there is no need to dress up! We welcome people of all backgrounds and visitors are always assured of a warm welcome.
Throughout the week we offer numerous opportunities for people to gather together for fellowship and fun. There truly is something for everyone. We see ourselves very much at the heart of the community with a heart for the community.
It would be wonderful to see you in church sometime.
May God bless you
Rev Manson Merchant

Our minister had a vision that 2019 would bring great things to our Church through our Lord.
The Dyce congregation would love to welcome more people to worship here. The following words might give you a reason to come along.
If you have problems in your life no matter how big or small (and who amongst us doesn’t) and no matter the subject, health, finances, relationships or just a feeling of being on a permanent treadmill and getting nowhere what would help you deal with those problems. How about having someone to talk with who would never judge, would always be prepared to guide and would love you no matter what. There is someone who does all of those things. He is our Lord Jesus Christ. Praying is the way we talk to God and while it is great to do that by yourself in the comfort of your own home the power of prayer is magnified when you do it in God’s house. Praying in Church or at a prayer meeting brings a feeling of calm and clarity which is deeply comforting.
Please join us on Sundays in Church or Thursday evenings at our Prayer meeting and give it a shot. We are a friendly bunch and you will be welcomed.
