Christmas Appeal

On Saturday 21 December from 10.30am to 12.30pm Gilcomston Church will be doing a Pop-Up Carol Event outside the front door of the church.

We need you to come and join us for all or part of that time; it’s a not a performance, just a communal sing-along! Hot chocolate and mince pies will be served mid-morning.

Part of our Christmas Appeal will be to help the Cyrenians by collecting items which they can give to someone who is homeless or experiencing hardship www.aberdeen-cyrenians.org/get-involved/christmas-and-beyond-appeal-2019. On the 12 days running up to the Pop-Up Carol Event we will be collecting the items listed below – you can drop them off at the front door of the church when it is open, or at the office door (last door on Summer Street) when the front door is closed.

We’ll have all 12 boxes available during the Pop-Up Carol Event, so if you’ve not had time to donate before then, this would be your last opportunity.

Thank you for your support!

The second part of our Christmas Appeal will go to the Barnabas Fund. With persecution against Christians rife in West Africa, tens of thousands of displaced people have lost everything. Famine is looming and the regions where Christians have sought refuge are struggling to feed them. Barnabas Aid is there to help them.
