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 Graham Wintour – if he doesn't make himself known to you first!

Strategic Day of Prayer - Saturday 3 October 2015
It is a self-evident truth that our fellowship is in a state of crisis. Whenever we find ourselves in a crisis situation it is always wise to call upon the Lord; seeking his guidance; seeking his will. Indeed, Scripture tells us that “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.” We are not seeking our solution to the problems facing the fellowship; we are seeking God’s solution to those problems. We want to do it his way. We don’t want to be labouring in vain.
To this end of seeking the Lord’s will, next Saturday, the third of October, has been set aside as a day of prayer; seeking the Lord’s will for our fellowship through prayer. Many of you may never have been asked to attend a prayer meeting before and you may be a bit apprehensive about what you may be letting yourself in for if you do decide to attend.
Let us set your concerns to rest, because it is no ordeal. The church hall will be open for anyone to drop in between 10 o’clock and 12 noon in the morning; and between 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock in the afternoon; and between 7 o’clock and 8.30 in the evening. Quietly come in when you want and quietly leave when you want. There is no need to join in prayer if you don’t want to. By just being there you will be adding your moral support to the meeting and indicating to God that you are trusting in him in our present difficulties. If you do wish to join in prayer, and we will be delighted if you do, there will be prayer sheets with prayer notes to help you. If you cannot physically join us, please set aside some time during the day, wherever you are, to pray with us.
Our fellowship is in a state of crisis and needs your help and support in prayer. Will you rise to the occasion? Will you join us next Saturday, the third of October, for a day of prayer? Please make every effort to seek the Lord’s will for our fellowship.
