This 10 week course explores the Christian faith through Mark’s Gospel. If you want to find out more about the course click here. Please contact us to find out when our next course will be running.
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 13 May 2013 >
Walk Up Bennachie There will be a walk up Bennachie for any men in the fellowship on Saturday 18 May, meeting in the Bennachie Centre car park at 10:30 am. Lifts can be arranged. Bring sandwiches. You'll be home easily in time for tea! No need to sign up. Just turn up if you'd enjoy a walk and loads of man chat!! More info from Dominic if you need. Feel free to bring a friend.
International Service We will be holding an International Service on Sunday 19 May, to which you may like to invite some international guests. After the service a soup and rolls lunch will be provided. The cost of the lunch will be about £3.50 a head. We would very much appreciate it, if you can afford to pay this amount, to be prepared to do so at the lunch. You might even be able to consider paying a little more to meet the cost of the lunches provided for those who have been especially invited to that meal together.
Has Science Got Rid Of God? An evening with John Blanchard on Wednesday 5 June at 7.30pm. This evening is very definitely for inviting enquiring unbelievers, who will hear a really well put-together ‘reason for the hope that is within us’ and who might, in the Lord’s providence, find that the Spirit is drawing them to Jesus. But it is also for Christians, to help us to learn from a great example of apologetics and to get a few good answers to difficult questions that we might face from people at work/family/neighbours etc.
Confidence in the Gospel Do you want your life to count for Christ? Would you like to make a real impact for God’s kingdom in this world? You can – and you don’t have to be a great leader for it to happen. Just a good follower. In Following Christ, Joe Stowell shows why Christ’s command to ‘Follow me’ isn’t merely the starting point of Christianity. It’s the very heartbeat of vibrant, effective faith. And it’s not just for a few gifted leaders, but for all believers. Stowell shows you what happens when an ordinary man or woman pursues not the trapping of Christianity, but Christ himself. You’ll discover – What a ‘non-negotiated follower’ looks like and why God does his best work through followers. 12 June at 7.30pm.
Ladies Evening We are hoping to hold a ladies evening on Friday 14 June in the church. This will be an informal evening which will be extended to the mothers/carers who come to Toddlers on a Friday morning so that they can meet other women in the fellowship, and friends are welcome. If you have a craft which you would be willing to demonstrate then supervise in a small group, or if you can do manicures or head massages we want to hear from you! The more varied the "workshops" available the better. Please note that funding for materials is limited! Please contact Marjorie Smart or Gill Mcouat. There will be a sign up sheet for those hoping to attend at the Information Point.
