The former Seaforth Videos store, and latterly a gym, is set to become the base for the Christian charity ‘Fountain of Love’ in Fraserburgh.

The Redeemed Christian Church of God’s Fountain of Love, which already has a church in Aberdeen, has submitted a planning application to Aberdeen Council to change the use of the former video rental store from a gym to a place of worship and drop in centre.

Over the previous two Christmas periods, the charity have been responsible for providing free food and drink hampers to areas of Fraserburgh, Gallowhill Road having been delivered hampers by the church in 2012.

The Redeemed Christian Church of God first began as a House fellowship in 1988 in London. Today, the Church says that there are now over 375 parishes in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.

Currently, it is understood that the Fraserburgh Parish meets every Sunday at the JIC Building for services at 11am. There is also a kitchen service provided from 10am to noon each Saturday.
