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 Philippa LInd– if she doesn't make herself known to you first!
NOTICES FOR WEEK BEGINNING 10TH MARCH
Kitchen Training Sessions Hospitality and catering are important in the life of the congregation and all work in this area of service is highly valued and appreciated. As the church kitchen has to be run on a commercial basis, a routine kitchen inspection was carried out by Aberdeen City Council resulting in some compulsory changes to protocols. The church must now compile a register of people who have attended a Gilcomston Church kitchen training session. It is essential for all lead cooks to attend a training session and it is recommended (bot not required) that anybody who assists in the kitchen in any way also attends. All current kitchen users and anybody interested in becoming involved in the kitchen are invited to sign up for one of the following sessions which will take place in the church hall: Saturday 22nd March 10.00am – 12.30pm and Thursday 27th March 7.00pm – 9.30pm. Sign-up sheets may be found at the information point. For further information please speak to Fiona Mackenzie or Heather Dougall.
Time of Sunday Morning Services A suggestion was made at the last Elders’ Meeting that we should consider changing the time of the Sunday morning services and begin at 10.30am. The Elders agreed to seek the views of the members of the congregation as to whether you would prefer the morning services to start at 10.30am or whether you would prefer the time to remain at 11am or whether you don’t mind. Please respond by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by seeing Rosie McKie at the Information Point.
Church Membership The Elders are proposing to hold a Service of Profession of Faith in the near future. If you are interested in doing this, please speak to Dominic or Mike. Alternatively, if you wish to transfer your membership from another church to Gilcomston, please also speak to Dominic or Mike.
