    • Please use hand sanitiser or wash your hands on entering and leaving
    • Sit in household groups with space between you and other households
    • Provide "track and trace" information
    • We encourage anyone who comes to church to undertake a lateral flow test beforehand


  • In person services at both Cromar and Aboyne-Dinnet Churches take place each Sunday.  Services take place at Cromar Church at 10:00 hours and at Aboyne-Dinnet Church at 11:00 hours,  The services from Aboyne-Dinnet Church will also be streamed live here and can also be viewed at any time thereafter.  At both churches the doors will be open during the services to allow ventilation through the buildings and you may like to ensure you bring a warm jacket or jersey with you
  • Fareshare - The green wooden shed for Fareshare food opposite Aboyne-Dinnet Church Hall is now stocked. Please bring a bag to carry the food in. There is no need to make a booking. Please use hand sanitiser before handling items and take whatever you can usefully use. The shed will be open during daylight hours seven days a week.
  • Foodbank - Food can also be delivered through the Aberdeenshire South Foodbank - Tel. 0792 6969 408
    Your local food bank works with referral agencies to issue food vouchers to those in need of food in times of crisis. The referral system ensures you are provided with appropriate help and support for your situation. (Agencies: doctors, health visitors, social workers, Church contacts, Citizens Advice Bureau and HomeStart.) There is an Aboyne rep who will deliver an Emergency Food Box to your door once you have a voucher.

  • Recordings of the Aboyne-Dinnet Church service are available on audio CD or video DVD.  If you know of anyone who does not have access to the internet but would like to listen to or watch the service weekly, please let Frank or one of the Elders know.  The audio CD plays in any audio CD player and the video DVD will play in a DVD player attached to a TV.

The previous service recordings are available here  These are generally kept visible for two or three months but any older recordings can be obtained by emailing wemaster@aboyne-dinnet-cromar-churches.org.uk
