Crèche and activities for children under 7 will be held during the morning service.  Tea and coffee will be served after both the morning and the evening service.

 

 

 

Church Big Clean: We are going to have a big clean of the church on Tuesday 20 August starting at 7pm. It would be great to have as many people as possible to help with this. We should be finished by about 9pm.

 

 

 

Food Bank: On Saturday 24 August Aberdeen North Foodbank will be at Tesco Danestone, from 9am - 4pm, informing local people about the foodbank and accepting donations. Our foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust Foodbank Network. 90% of the food distributed in the network comes from donations.  If you want to volunteer on the day - please sign up on   https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0b4baea72ca3f58-tesco1

 

 

 

Ladies Meeting: The ladies meeting will take place on Monday 26 August at 8pm in the manse. This meeting is used to discuss helping with needs in the congregation and activities for the coming term. All ladies are welcome.

 

 

 

Business Meeting: The annual business meeting will take place on Wednesday 28 August at 7.30pm in the hall. All are welcome

 

 

 

Gardenstown Induction: The induction of the new minister, Robin Gray, to the Gardenstown Free church congregation will take place on Saturday 24 August at 2pm.

 

 

 

Congregational Outing: All are invited to the Congregational Outing on 31 August from 2-5pm at Hillview Community Church. Each NF has been assigned a part. Please speak to your leaders, or to John or Suzanne for more information.

 

 

 

Bible and Bagels:  We will recommence on 1 September at 10am in the

 

Session meeting room. We will continue the R.C. Sproul series ‘Dust to

 

Glory’, working our way through the New Testament.

 

 

 

NF Study Guide: The new NF study guide “Experiencing God” is now available.  You can collect a copy from this Sunday, 18 August before and after the morning and evening services.   The cost of the study guide is £3.00 and as always, the correct change would be appreciated.

 

 

 

Ladies Book Study: We will start a new book - Identity Theft, edited by Melissa Kruger on Monday 2 September.  If anyone would like to order a copy of the book or more details of the group please speak to Wilma. It is a good way to meet new people and study God’s word

 

 

 

Directory Photos: Photos for the new congregational directory will be taken following the morning services on the 25 August and 1 September. Please come prepared to have a photo taken if you would like to have your photo included in the

 

directory.

 

 

 

International Students Friendship Link: The academic year 2019-20 is around the corner.  New students will soon be arriving. A few students have signed up to the Scheme already although the exact number is not yet known.  The participation rate, coupled with new students in September, is expected to be fairly high. New hosts are required for the scheme.  If you would like to become involved with hosting international students please speak to Isobel for more information.

 

 

 

Generation 19: As part of Bon Accord's participation in 'Generation 19' we are planning to put on a Chinese mid autumn 'moon cake festival' on Friday 20 September aimed at the newly arriving Chinese overseas students, as well as people from the Aberdeen Chinese community. Members of Bon Accord will also be invited. Eugene and Carol are going to be heading this up but we are seeking volunteers to help. If you are willing to get involved then please contact either Christian or Eugene.
We are also looking for six volunteers, along with myself, to commit to regular prayer  in the planning and build up to the event itself. We don't, necessarily, have to get together regularly, although one or two corporate prayer sessions would be good. I'm just looking for six other individuals who pledge to pray committedly in the run up to the event itself and who will help with specific prayer points to ensure that we are petitioning and inquiring of the Lord as much as possible for its success. If you want to know more or are keen to get involved on that front then please speak with Christian, or contact on 07834279736.

 

Choices Pregnancy Counselling Service: This year Aberdeen is hosting the Scottish Centre’s day conference in Aberdeen on Saturday 28 September. This day will include information and training on a Post Abortion Healing Course developed by Holy Trinity Brompton Church(HTB).

 

A team of three counsellors will come up for the day from London and will explain the vision behind the Post Abortion Healing Course.  They will also give delegates the opportunity to experience a session of the course. This seminar is suitable for anyone interested.  There will be opportunities to ask questions and look at the materials available. For further details about the day speak to Wilma M. Booking is essential. The seminars will take place from 1.30 – 3.45 p.m. at Credo Centre, John Street.
