Students & Young Adults
Aberdeen is a University city with two thriving universities and a college just round the corner from the church building. It’s no surprise that students play a big part of our family at Gerrard Street. However, we also include young adults (non-students and graduates) who play a major role in this group.
At the start of the academic year we host a number of welcome lunches. These take place after the morning service and are a great way to get fed with a tasty lunch, meet some of the community, and find out a bit more about the church.
If you are a student looking for a church community to belong to, then one of the student welcome team would love to buy you a coffee and get to know you better. Come and introduce yourself, or contact us.
Gerrard Street @ 6.30
GerrardStreet@6.30 is our weekly gathering for the young adult community at Gerrard Street. We meet at the church at 6.30pm on Sunday evenings.
We eat together. We hear the Bible taught together. We sing and pray together.
You don't need to have any background in Christianity to come along. Come join us for food and see what we're about. You can join in with as much or as little as you feel comfortable with.
The Student weekend is a highlight every year!
It's a chance to get away together, eat lots of great food, have a laugh, and to get stuck into one Bible topic together. From Quiddich, to worship evening, to crazy games... It is always a fantastic time of growth and fellowship.
The next Weekend Away will be early next year.
While it is great to have our own events, it is important to us that students and young adults take a full part in the life of the wider church family. That means faithfully attending the Sunday Morning Service and signing up for a Connect Group. These are the Big 2 at Gerrard Street and we encourage everyone to make them a priority. You can read more about them on other pages on this site.
Adopt a Student
There is also the opportunity to be adopted by a person, couple or family from the church for your time in Aberdeen.
They will regularly feed you, and look out for you, during your time with us.
