Mannofield Church Heart of the Community Project


Work on the refurbishment of our buildings should start by 1 October. This excludes the new build community café extension.

The generosity and enthusiasm for this project has been astonishing and fund raising has reached around £1.2 million. It is anticipated that the cost of the contract will be around £1.4m as unexpected but essential repairs to the roof and steeple were identified by our Conservation Architect with an approximate cost of £220,000

The decision to start is taken on the back of the offer of financial help from The Church of Scotland General Trustees who have offered a loan, should we need it, to meet any shortfall as we continue to fundraise towards the total required. However through a direct appeal to members by way of a Gift Sunday on 13 September and ongoing fundraising, we hope to be in a position where such a loan will be unnecessary

It is our vision to see Mannofield at the heart of the Community. Our intention is to use the gift of our building and its situation to make our church a ‘centre of care’ for the whole community and all generations. With the help and support of many individuals, trusts and funds, we are very close to realising this vision.

Mannofield Church began life in 1882 and is part of the Church of Scotland. Situated in the City of Aberdeen and part of the Presbytery of Aberdeen it is the largest Church of Scotland congregation in the City with 1,313 members.

In our life and worship we seek to make the very best contribution we can offer to the community we serve and the city in which we exist, as we allow the spirit of God’s Love to direct us towards service to others and the provision of a warm and open welcome to our building and activities.

The Goals we seek:-

  • To play a crucial part in the community by providing the opportunity and encouragement for people to worship in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
  • To capture the imagination of all generations living in our community and welcome them into active involvement within our church family.
  • To use the gift of our building and its situation to make our church a place of busy activity and a hub for care and support for the community around us.
