Gerrard Street Baptist Church
Gerrard Street Church is located in a deprived part of Aberdeen surrounded by hi-rise buildings with stark concrete in the surrounding area. The church group is passionate about creating an environment where the locals can engage and be part of their community. It has continued to foster and build relationships with the local residents through coffee mornings, organising community BBQ, Christmas tree lighting and singing event, women’s group and a free monthly cafe. The surrounding green space is now blossoming with colour against the stark concrete due to the continuous effort of planting along the perimeter of the church and hi-rise, painting benches and putting up planters with some of the local residents.
