Thank you for taking the time to visit the website for Dyce Parish Church. I do hope you find our site informative and helpful.
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 35 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
