Return to worshipping in Bon Accord’s building:

The church building capacity is still restricted to 50 people, therefore registering in advance is essential. An online form will be sent out each week via email.

 

Updated information on changes to the church building layout and operating procedures for people in the building is available on the church website. Included in this information is the recent update in Scottish Government guidance stating that it is now mandatory for members of the congregation to wear a face mask at all times when in the church building.

 

Youth Fellowship:

YF will be meeting downstairs after the evening service from 7.30-8.30pm. All students and young adults are very welcome!

We will be adhering to social distancing and masks will need to be worn. For more details check out the student and young adult FB page or speak to Anne or any of our Student Team.

 

Blythswood Shoebox Appeal 2020:

Thanks to all who contributed to this year’s Shoebox Appeal. Despite the overall expectation that collections would be down by a third this year, we managed to collect more boxes that last year! With the boxes handed in and with further boxes made up from donated items, we managed to collect 78 boxes and so together with those collected from Gilcomston, Maryculter and St Ternans, we managed to pass on 140 boxes this year. This is so encouraging and it’s great to know that each of these boxes will make such a difference to those who receive them. Thank you all for your kindness and generosity - it is much appreciated.
