Students
There are many students who are part of the fellowship and are encouraged to be involved in all areas of the life of Gilcomston. However, we recognise that students have special needs, physical (good food!) and spiritual, and we try to care for these in a variety of ways.

During the first few weeks of term, there is an emphasis placed on offering Sunday lunches to students at homes. This is a great way to get away from halls food and get to know other people within the church. We also run an optional ‘buddying’ scheme that pairs up students with older people in the church to meet regularly together. Those who are involved in this find it incredibly helpful and encouraging.

We also encourage our students to be involved in the CU at their college or university. These mission teams, an arm of the local churches, are active in evangelism on campus and there are various opportunities to serve.

If you are new to Gilcomston, please make yourself known to Andrew Keuer– if he doesn't make himself known to you first!

 

NOTICES FOR AUGUST

Thursday Outreach onto Union Street (coffee and chat) started up again on Thursday. If you are free between 12 noon and 1.30pm, the team is always looking for new people to help and you’d be made very welcome. All that is needed is a good listening ear and willingness to serve coffee and take the opportunity to share the gospel if the opportunity arises.

Fellowship Tea Many of the congregation will be aware that Angela Tudor retired from her position on the Staff of Gilcomston Church on 31 July. Also, Philippa Lind is coming to the end of her period of maternity leave and has indicated that she will not be coming back on to the Staff of the Church. Angela has been on the Staff for 5 years and has done an excellent job working with older people, coordinating Sunday afternoon services and Cafeplus, as well as meeting up with many individuals on a regular basis. She has also kept in touch with our missionary partners. Pip joined the Staff following her graduation in 2010 and has served with real enthusiasm with Students and Young Adults, not only organising regular events but also meeting up with young people one-to-one, often for Bible Study. Happily, both Angela and Pip will be remaining part of the fellowship.
Angela and Pip have at least two things in common – they both have a great desire to see people come through to personal faith and they both love tea! We would therefore like to invite all members of the congregation to a Fellowship Tea from 4pm on Sunday 31 August when there will be the opportunity to thank Angela and Pip for all that they have contributed to the life of the fellowship over these years.

Sunday School Picnic All Sunday School children and their families are invited to a picnic on Saturday 6 September in the Duthie Park between 11.30am and 2.30pm. Please speak to Sarah Wilson or Karen Moon for more information.
