Creche, Sunday school and Bible study will be held during the morning service. Tea and coffee will be served after both the morning and evening service.

 

Congregational lunch: We will have a congregational lunch after the morning service on 10 December. All are welcome. If you can help by bringing a pudding please speak to Isobel Morison.

 

Sunday School Christmas Party: This will take place on Saturday 9 December from 2 - 4:30pm. All Sunday School children are welcome! Parents are welcome to drop their children off and enjoy a coffee or some Christmas shopping. Santa arrives at 4pm if you wish to be back in time for that special event! Any questions please speak to Judy or Anne.

 

Bon Accord Christmas Card: Bon Accord is once again having a congregational Christmas card. Instead of sending out Christmas cards to all your Bon Accord friends you can write a message on the card and donate some money.  This year the money will be donated to the WFM ( Women for Mission) Project 2017/2018  - Helping to Help. Information on the project is on the noticeboard beside the card

 

Cords: Thank you to everyone who is participating in cords and hospitality. There has been interest shown in cords for the ‘not-so-young’ and if this is something you would like to be part of please do speak to Donald or Anne Smith.

 

Leaflets for Christmas services: There are leaflets for our Christmas services available at the church door. Please take copies for giving to your friends and family.

 

Glorious 2018: Leaflets about the Glorious conference for women are available now on the table at the door. This will be held in February. Tickets are available from Aberdeen box office.


Edict regarding the election of office bearers: On Monday 7 August 2017, the Kirk Session agreed to consult with the membership of the Congregation regarding the nomination of both new Elders and Deacons to Bon Accord Free Church by means of voting forms to be returned by 1 October 2017.
Those chosen by the Congregation by way of having the most votes were judged by
the Session to be duly qualified for the respective offices of Elder and Deacon and
on 6 November 2017 the Kirk Session remitted to the Minister and Clerk to appoint a
date for their ordination and admission to office once they had intimated their acceptance.
The appointed date is 10 December 2017 at the end of the morning Service.
The proposed new elders are: Norman Laing, Norman Buchanan, Robert MacDonald
The proposed new Deacons are: Iain Meredith, Douglas Longmuir, Ian Bowman, Christian Campbell, Anthony Fong, Iain Smith, David Boyd.
If any member of the Congregation objects to the life or doctrine of any of these persons, they will be able to do so at a meeting of Session - to be held on Sunday 10 December 2017 at 10.30am in the vestry. If no objection is made at that meeting, the ordination and admission will proceed on that day at the end of the morning service.
