The Ladies’ Bible Study Group meets in the Church Hall on Tuesdays from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon. All ladies welcome.

Retiring Collection : The Retiring collection for September which will be in aid of Helping Hands will be taken at both services on Sunday 05 October. Any envelopes handed in today will still go to this good cause.
Church and Church Hall Cleaning Rotas : A small number of spaces on these rotas have become vacant. If you could help with this important matter please contact Ann MacLeod.
Food Bank : Items for the Food Bank may be deposited in the box in the Front Vestibule.
Harvest Thanksgiving Sunday : Our annual Harvest Thanksgiving Service will take place next Sunday morning. It has been agreed that all donations made should be directed towards those in need in Portree and other areas of Skye.
Helping Hands has been identified as the most appropriate organisation to receive our donations and they will liaise with various other agencies (Social Services, CAB etc) to ensure that help is directed to where it is most needed. Cash donations would be the most acceptable form of donation as this allows Helping Hands to make bulk purchases at more competitive prices.
It is also hoped that food items from the list available in the Front Vestibule will be brought and left in the special box in the Front Vestibule. Members of the Sunday School will bring these food items to the Chancel area at the start of the service
Kirk Session also agreed that the September retiring collection and any white envelopes received during September will be directed to Helping Hands.
The donations will be collected at both services on Sunday 05 October.
Items particularly requested are pasta, pasta sauces, jam, rice, smoked sausage, noodles, soup, beans, sweetcorn, breakfast cereals, tins of ravioli, powdered milk,tins of spaghetti bolognese
