News

Christmas Hampers: Food collection for our annual hamper appeal will commence on Sunday 10 November and run till 15 December. In addition to the food, each hamper will have a booklet sharing why Christmas is really Good News. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if the Cube Room was too small to contain the donations!! Lynne Powell will be i/c. If you know a family or families who could benefit from a hamper please let Lynne know.

Please check out our website, www.aberdeencf.com,for news about our church plant, Portlethen Christian Fellowship and continue to pray for that new church.

Tumaini Fund Scotland Christmas Appeal: Our appeal this year is to bring Hope to our orphans through education. Each child needs a set of hard backed jotters called ‘Daftari’ in order to attend school. We are delighted to be partnering with other sister Tumaini charities in order to support our ‘sons and daughters of Tumaini’ who have already overcome so much in order to attend secondary school. Every £10 raised will provide an orphan with the opportunity to be in each school for the year complete with exercise books they need.

Please consider joining with us in supporting our orphan children in need:

Please contact Donna (07968 270049) to obtain your gift card. We have a variety of cards to choose from.
