ActivitySt Clement’s Episcopal Church had its origins in St. Clement’s Mission to the poor, begun in 1889. It was an offshoot of St Margaret’s Mission and Church in the Gallowgate, Aberdeen, and was begun by the Reverend John Comper when a friend of the mission purchased the old St Clement’s Free Church building and presented it to Mr Comper for mission work. The congregation moved to Mastrick, an impoverished area of new housing to the west of the city, in 1961, where a new hall-church was built with attached kitchens and facilities. With a lively congregation drawn in great part from the young people of the area, it celebrated its fortieth anniversary under the incumbency of the Reverend Isaac Poobalan in 2001.
