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 JULY

'Fit For A King' Holiday Club for children starting Primary 1 to Primary 7. 11th to 15th August, 10.00am to 12.30pm at Aberdeen YMCA and Hebron Evangelical Church. Booking forms are now available at the Information Point or at:
http://www.hebron-evangelical.co.uk/images/FFAK%20registration%20cartoon.pdf

Sunday Evening Teas  There is a new sign-up sheet for Sunday evening Teas at the information point - providing plenty of opportunities to get more involved in the fellowship. Please note there is no rota – we rely on people to volunteer on a week-by-week basis. Please don’t wait to be asked – please consider volunteering to help out. New volunteers are particularly welcome, especially over the summer period when many of the regular volunteers are away. Guidance on duties may be found in the kitchen and information point – alternatively, please speak to Fiona MacKenzie.

Lunchtime Services  All three teams who prepare and serve lunch at the lunchtime services are struggling for manpower. If you can help either weekly, fortnightly or even once a month, by coming in early to make sandwiches, by being around after the lunchtime service to serve food or to clear up, please speak to Isobel Walker, Heather Dougall, Alison Strudwick or Rosie McKie.

Clothes For Romania  Children for Christ are in need of adults’ and children’s clothes for people in Romania. If you have clothes to spare, please give them to Stephanie Smart before Sunday 6 August.

trypraying  We are keen to find out the congregations thoughts on the trypraying booklet which we issued before Easter. Thank you to those who have already responded.
Did you manage to give any away? If so, are there any interesting stories about it? What kind of people did you give them to? How easy did you find it to give to someone? Was it a result of a conversation? Did you leave it in a public place? Did you get any feedback? How big a hurdle was it for you to hand one to someone? Did you read it first? Did you think it was helpful? Would you like more help and support on doing one-to-one witnessing? What would be the best format for this teaching?
Any information you give will be treated anonymously, leave your comments in an envelope at the information point marked "Try Praying" or send to info@ gilcomston.org
