Welcome to Garthdee Students Connect! Well done for finding us.
RGU Students. Whether you are returning for your final year or this is your first time away from home, we hope you’ll find a warm welcome here. We want you to feel like part of the family.
There are already students from RGU departments who consider Garthdee Church as their home.
We gather to enjoy each other’s company, conversations, sharing of life, where we have come from, where we hope to be in the future through our time of study at University. We gather to consider faith and what that means to each person. We also seek to make a difference in the world around us, in lots of different ways.
We gather to learn more about the young adult Jesus of Nazareth and his message for the world.
RGU Students Living in Garthdee Parish Church
There are over 1,500 RGU students living in Garthdee Parish some of whom attend our Garthdee Church.
As former students ourselves we want to help them maintain their faith. Also to build connections with other students across RGU and Garthdee, in general. So we have set up an additional service at 7:30 pm in our Ramsay Gardens church each Sunday evening. We also plan to introduce a fellowship time with pizza to help feed our souls and stomachs.
Garthdee RGU Students Connect Fellowship.
Garthdee Church RGU Students Connect is committed to ‘Sharing Life & Loving Garthdee’ so we’re excited you’ve joined us in our great city! Our vision is:
- To preach Jesus to the students of RGU
- To make disciples – training up followers of Jesus
- To serve Garthdee, Aberdeen city, in RGU and beyond
- To send out leaders- students and graduates making an impact across all spheres of society
First of all, we want Garthdee Church Students fellowship to become a home from home for you. It does not matter whether you’re a lifelong Christian or brand new to the whole ‘church thing’. Secondly, we long to see Jesus make an impact in all universities, halls of residence, clubs, societies, and student houses. Consequently, we will be a place where people can make friends, ask questions and explore faith in themselves.
If you are up for any of this, the best way is to come along to our 19:30 Service. It would be great to get you plugged into Garthdee Church. We hope to see you soon!
