Deeside Christian Fellowship > Youth + Student > Student > Ascend > Ascend


Ascend is the young adults group at Deeside, from the ages of 17/18 onwards! We meet every Thursday at 7.30pm in the new offices for our regular Bible studies and every Sunday at 7.30pm for our more informal evenings. The aim of the group is to grow in the knowledge of who God is, that will transform the way we live and through it bring Him glory.

We are currently going through James in our Thursday's sessions, who speaks about being single-minded Christians, whose purity lies deep within our core, which needs to be changed in the Lord to be able to live in this way. We have split the letter into different passages to fit within the semester. We alternate between individual and group studies; one week someone from the group will prepare questions which we will answer in our own quiet time before coming on the Thursday; and the following we will meet together on the Thursday to listen, watch or read a sermon or sermon notes and discuss the main points. We also organize some fellowship time on the first Thursday of the month to give us the opportunity to meet with other friends together.

Sunday's are spent in fellowship, through Guys & Girls; giving the guys and girls an opportunity to meet separately, doing activities such as football, baking, etc. and have a chance to chat with each other and get to know each other better. Home; is a great opportunity to get to know the church family, spending the evening at someone's home, getting to know more about their everyday life, how God has changed their lives... and finding out who within the household cooks better, who is the messiest, and who takes longer to get ready in the morning!

Social; is our night in full of fun activities at the Cordiner's, where we get to go swimming, or play table tennis or play some board games.

And Finally our Mission Sunday, the last Sunday of the month, where we get to serve together at a church event. We are currently helping out at TNT - Tea 'n Tilly, a great evangelistic event at the Missions in Tillydrone aimed for those in the area and providing food, a message and a children's program. We serve food, chat to those who come or help out with the children.

We also have a weekend away at the end of the year, doing activities, spending time in the word, playing games, spending time together and eating lots!

Here are some photos of what we have been up to in the last few years.
