This 7 week course explores the Christian faith through Mark’s Gospel. If you want to find out more about the course click here.
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 MAY
Kitchen Deep Clean On Saturday 30 May we will be deep-cleaning the kitchen. This will mean emptying all cupboards, moving furniture, cleaning walls and ceilings etc etc. We will start at 9.30am and finish when we’re done. Turn up at any time! If you are interested in helping (it would be great to have lots of young adults (fit and able-bodied!) in particular!) please speak to Heather Dougall. It’s important to know who is coming so that we can get in touch with people on the day if necessary.
Nepal Earthquake The Gilcomston Trust will be sending a donation through Tearfund in response to the Nepal disaster appeal. If you would like to add to what will be sent by the Trust please put a donation in an envelope marked 'Nepal' in the offering basket. Cheques should be made payable to 'The Gilcomston Trust'. If you have already completed a Gift Aid Declaration in favour of the Trust and would like Gift Aid added, please also write your name clearly on the envelope.
Dave Male Weekend Dave Male now trains pioneer church workers at Ridley Hall in Cambridge, having started Net in Huddersfield. Dave is coming up to Aberdeen the first weekend in June and is speaking at an event in the church on Saturday morning, 6 June. It should be a great opportunity to think out loud together and to encourage one another in our desire to see the city transformed through worshipping and witnessing communities of whole-life, disciple-making disciples.
Dave is very down to earth and although he is an Anglican, he’s alright! He’s also worked with many churches and groups of churches around the UK and further afield.
The plan for the day looks like this:
9:30 arrive, chat, coffee and all that
10:00 to 12:15 input from Dave and dialogue
12:15-12:45 quick lunch break (bring your own or buy from any of the 4,769 food places near Gilc - tea/coffee provided)
12:45-1:30 more input from Dave then close.
Young Adults’ Gardening and Spring-Cleaning Service If keeping the garden or the house in check is a more daunting task than it once was – or even if you’re simply too busy – please consider asking some of our Young Adults to help! We’re offering the service on Saturdays up until (and including) Saturday 27 June. The sign-up sheet is available at the Information Point.
Holiday Club Would anyone like to provide a team lunch one day during the holiday club? It would involve cooking a lunch in the Gilc kitchen for around 45 people and arranging for it to be delivered to Hebron Church in time for lunch (usually around 12.30pm). The holiday club takes place w/b 10 August, and we would be providing lunch on either Monday 10th, Wednesday 12th or Thursday 13th (you would choose). Please speak to Rosie McKie if you would like to help out.
Creche If you would like to help out on the crèche rota once a month, please speak to Rosie McKie email@example.com
