Explore (Oct – Dec 2019): It is now time to order the next issue of the Explore daily Bible readings as the readings in the current issue of Explore finish at the end of September.  The next volume runs from October to the end of December 2019. The cost is £4.50 per copy, but it is well worth it as there are ninety-two dated and numbered daily Bible readings to help you understand clearly the message and challenge of the Word of God.

Generation 19 takes place at the start of September. It consists of evangelistic initiatives run by churches throughout Scotland, See https://generation-mission.org/ for more information. What are we doing at Bon Accord?

 

 

 

Sunday 1st: Books will be available at church to give to friends and family with the aim of prompting thought and discussion about the Christian faith. These will be Mez McConnel’s testimony, 'Is There Anybody Out There' and David Robertson’s book on Jesus, 'Magnificent Obsession: Why Jesus is great'.

 

 

 

Thursday 12th: Bon Accord is hosting the Friends International welcome meal for RGU international students.

 

 

 

Friday 20th: 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.

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.
