Ellon Parish Church is currently undergoing a series of necessary repair and refurbishment programmes to all its church buildings including the manse.
As part of this work, The Slains Kirk has seen a new organ installed recently.
But now the kirk has been closed for safety reasons until further notice.
This is a temporary measure to allow for urgent work that needs to be carried out.
The brand new organ was installed at the kirk a few weeks ago thanks to the generosity from Ellon Parish Church Kirk Centre Coffee Shop. The church wish to thank them for their help and remind the community that they will not be able to hear the new organ again until work at the kirk has been completed.
If the public has any ideas for fundraising, or if anyone has arranged an event - people are asked to sent suggestions or get in contact with The Fundraising Co-ordinators - Mary Paterson, Fiona Grant or Ann Gammack at the church on a Sunday morning or the Kirk Centre Office so that a Diary of Events can be set up and to prevent double booking.
