Churches of Aberdeen
Historical and Descriptive by Alexander Gammie (1909)


Preface

THE publication of this work has been undertaken in response to numerous and repeated requests. The substance of it appeared originally in a series of articles in the Evening Express from 1904 to 1906, but much additional information has been included, and the matter has been revised to the present date and largely recast. While the chapters are therefore to a considerable extent different from what appeared in the Press, it has been deemed advisable to adhere—even at the risk of some repetition—to the idea originally in view of making each separate chapter or history complete in itself.

It is hoped that the volume may meet with acceptance from the wide circle, both at home and abroad, who have expressed the wish for its appearance and that it may be found to fill a useful place, hitherto unoccupied in the ecclesiastical annals of Aberdeen, by supplying a record of the origin and history of each individual congregation and sect in the city. I have to express my best thanks to Mr. Robert Anderson, Editor, Aberdeen Daily Journal, who kindly revised the proofs, and helped with his counsel in various ways; and to Mr. James B. Thomson, Sub-Librarian, Aberdeen Public Library, for preparing the Index and otherwise giving assistance. For the use of blocks and photographs I am indebted to a large number of friends, whose names are too numerous for individual mention, but whose kindness I gladly acknowledge. My thanks are likewise due to Mr. James A. C. Coutts, Manager, Aberdeen Daily Journal, for helpful services rendered in connection with the production of the volume.

A. G.
Aberdeen, Christmas, 1909.
