The Lazarus Project is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (S.C.I.O) with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (O.S.C.R ).
It is a project that started off in September 19th 2014 with the aim of providing meals to members of the community who aren’t able to afford to feed themselves. The Lazarus Project’s purpose is the “prevention or relief of poverty and relief for those in need by reason of age, ill health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantages".
Lazarus Soup Kitchen meet every last Saturday of the month from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm (except in the month of December) at Jesus House Aberdeen premises. During the meetings, a hot meal, as well as other necessities (toiletries and personal essentials) are provided in form of food parcels to attendees. The meetings also feature activities such as hymn singing, games, short inspirational and instructive video clips. Counselling is also provided for those in need of it.
Jesus House Aberdeen Football Club was established in 2008. The main reason for its establishment is to propagate the gospel of Jesus. JHAFC was also established to engage the youth both within the church and outside the church. The team started by playing friendly matches with churches and teams within Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire and is now a member of the Aberdeenshire Amateur Football Association (AAFA) Division Two East.
The SMILE TREE Project started off in 2016 and stems from the heart of touching the lives of children in the community, making a difference by giving hope to families and making the love of God real. Every Christmas, we collaborate with our sister churches - RCCG, City of the Great King, Hilton and RCCG, Jesus House, Dyce to support the Mastrick, Hilton and Dyce communities by buying Christmas gifts for every child whose families are unable to provide these for their children or wards. Cash donations are given voluntarily to purchase these gifts to put a smile on the face of every child at Christmas.
