News

Wheelchair: A wheelchair has been kindly donated to the church, and is available to anyone attending ACF  who has mobility difficulties. Please speak with one of the duty stewards for assistance.

Care for the church: The recently formed Design Team is doing an excellent job of improving the look of the inside of the building, yes there is a but, but we who use it aren’t supporting them too well. Cups, glasses, bottles of water, tissues (used), and other stuff are being left throughout the building, particularly the main hall. If you tak it in, could ye tak it oot fan ye go,please?

While there is no issue with the young folks using the various rooms after the services, it would be good if they tidied up after themselves (forlorn hope?). Same with the creche. Perhaps parents of the children who use the rooms could check these rooms for a quick tidy before going home. If that doesn’t happen someone else who attends church will have to do it!

To support that plea we are looking at how to improve the overall cleanliness of the interior, to be good stewards of what we have been graciously given.

Rant over!!

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