Brief History

Brief History

 On the 4th of July 2005, The Faith Clinic started as an outreach ministry of the Fountain of Love Aberdeen. It was born out of a passion to see people who are down on life come to know the relief that Jesus Christ gives.

This is based on what the Lord Jesus Christ says in Matthew 11:28 -

Come to me all you who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest”.

It was actively involved in providing daily meals (lunch) for the homeless and people recovering from alcohol and drug issues. It serves at least 120 portions of meals per week, and organises prayers and bible study sessions at the Faith Clinic meetings.

Over the years the project attracted a good number of people from different ethnic background and nationalities who see no future in their addictive behaviours. Some have gone through the penal system with all the stigma that comes with such pasts. They found hope when they came to TFC.

In early 2015, The Faith Clinic was renamed The Potter's Hand with inspiration for the change taken from Jeremiah 18:6

"Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand".

The Potter's Hand caters to people who need help in overcoming problems such as addiction, illnesses, homelessness and unemployment. Our desire is to see more and more lives transformed to the glory of God through The Potter's Hand.
