COMMUNITY VENUE

Use our Hall

We support and encourage community groups and organisations to use our building in Skene Terrace. In return, we ask for a reasonable donation to cover our heating, lighting and other costs.

Groups and organisations can use the main hall on the ground floor or the Inkson meeting room on the first floor. Access to basic kitchen facilities, Smart TV with a large screen and a keyboard can be arranged depending on the circumstances.

Single events or regular sessions can be accommodated but in most instances we will require the group or organisation to send us a copy of their Public Liability Insurance so that we can make sure adequate cover is in place for events.

All details for using our premises and a form for completion are included here.

Before making a booking, please note that access to our building may not be suitable for some people with disabilities.

Our Facilities

With the warm atmosphere and friendly conversation of the Terrace Community Cafes and various activity groups, all who need and want it are provided with a brief respite from the day-to-day pressures of daily life.

How to get There

Our church is situated in the centre of Aberdeen, close to Union Terrace Gardens and is easily accessed from any bus going to the city centre. For those arriving by car, there are several options.

  • Parking in Skene Terrace and in the surrounding streets behind the church is free of charge on Sundays until 13.00.

  • There are two covered car parks, run by Aberdeen City Council, which are approximately a three minute walk away and also free on Sunday mornings. These are located at Chapel Street and Denburn.

  • There is also a car park about 100 yards from the church, which is operated by NCP.

ACCESSIBILITY

Unfortunately, since the church entrance is off the steeply inclined Skene Terrace, wheelchair access is problematical, although not impossible with advance notice. The access stairs have railings, including a central section.
