We are pleased to welcome Lynda Johnston to the church office at Ferryhill! Lynda will start her new post on Monday 24 October.
Lynda resides in Ferryhill with her husband, Andrew, and has two teenage children, Lily (19) and Finlay (17). She joins us from the HR department at the University of Aberdeen and will be a pleasant addition to the church staff! Make sure to stop by and offer a warm Ferryhill hello to Lynda as begins her new role!
Ferryhill Parish Church presents a concert by the Acclamations: Music for an Autumn Evening on Friday 28th October 2016 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is £5 and includes refreshments. This is sure to be an excellent evening of music.
Tickets can be purchased from the church coffee shop Monday-Saturday mornings or at the door before the concert begins. All proceeds in aid of the Manse Appeal Fund.
We begin another season of Café Connect on Sunday night, 2 October, starting at 7 p.m. This is a great chance to discuss and chat about issues of faith and life over a bite to eat. These monthly gatherings are open to anyone who would like to join us.
We will be starting a series looking at different aspects of what it means to be "Called to Community" - living in community - and what particular role the Church has within our communities today.
Some of the questions we will be looking at include:
- What is the Church’s role in the lives of individuals and families who no longer turn to it as the center of their social and family structure?
- What is the Church’s role in a world that increasingly sees it as irrelevant or even antithetical to human progress?
- What is the Church’s role in the lives of the people who continue to return to it as a source of strength, inspiration, solace and connection with God?
- What is the Church’s role in the lives of the people who have never walked through one of our doors and those who have sworn they never will again?
The Lunch Club at Ferryhill Parish Church is open to anyone over 55 every Tuesday during term time from 12:30 p.m.
A nutritious two course lunch plus tea/coffee is served for £4.00 with the opportunity to meet up and chat with other folk in the community much appreciated by regular attendees.
Anyone can come along: you do not need to be a church member or have any church connection. You do not need to come every week either, although most people do come regularly as they enjoy the food and the company. Please consider
coming along – you will be made very welcome. The Lunch Club starts on Tuesday 6th September.
Join us Friday 21 October at 7:30 p.m. at The Mission (St Machar Drive, AB24 3RX) for a city-wide gathering to pray for our community and world. All will be made most welcome and are invited to stay for tea and coffee after a time of prayer and reflection.
"Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
Young people from P7 up to S6 ages are very welcome to join us, meeting in the foyer and hall of the church on Sunday evenings (2nd and 4th Sundays) at 6:30 p.m., finishing around 8:30 p.m.
You will find more information here.
You may have taken advantage of our excellent Coffee Shop at Ferryhill Church over the years. It is open every morning (Monday to Saturday) of the year with a break over Christmas. The Coffee Shop provides an excellent space to catch up with friends over a cuppa or to get a bite to eat.
The Coffee Shop is made possible because of teams of volunteers who are on duty once a fortnight. You do not need to be a church member to be involved in one of these teams. If you are interested and would like to find out more about joining one of the teams, please contact Edna Sainsbury on 01224 572477.
