The Free Presbyterian congregation in Aberdeen dates back to Tuesday 26th November 1963, when a service was conducted by Rev. R. R. Sinclair and attended by about fifty people. Services were held once a term thereafter, and the first Sabbath service was held on 20th February 1966.
Regular Sabbath services were started in 1968, and the congregation became a mission station in January 1970, a sanctioned charge in May 1971, and a Church extension charge in May 2005. The congregation was greatly affected by the 1989 split and there were no regular services between 1989 and 1993.
The ministers have been Rev. E. A. Rayner (6th October 1972-24th November 1976), Rev. John Tallach (31st July 1979-May 1989), and Rev Douglas Somerset (29th July 2005-date).
The present church building in Alford Place is the former Free Church College (Christ’s College) library, which was purchased in April 1989. Previous places of worship include a converted shop in Summerfield Terrace, a church building in John Street, and a church building in Skene Street.
