William Still was minister of Gilcomston South Church of Scotland, Aberdeen for 52 years.
He was born in Aberdeen in May 1911, the son of William and Helen Still, both from the little fishing village of Gardenstown. From his earliest childhood young William was taken to the meetings of the Salvation Army Corps in Aberdeen. Already by the age of thirteen he was a decided Christian. But his childhood and teens were dogged by weakness that at times was almost crippling – and from which he was rescued only by the intervention of a Glasgow physician.
