After Morning Worship Fellowship : We are looking for a few volunteers to assist with the serving of tea & coffee after morning services.
If you feel you would like to help in this please speak to Bill Marshall.
Thank You : We are fortunate in Portree that so many of the congregation volunteer to help the church in so many different ways. The church could simply not function the way it does without this assistance.
The Minister and Kirk Session would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved no matter how large or small their contribution.

A New Year With The Lord
A new year is about to unfold
With new opportunities to explore
Doors will open for new experiences
New adventures with the Lord
Remember not the former things
The things of this past year
The Lord will do new things in us
Much more than we are aware
For He will make a way for us
As we put our trust in Him
And He will guide our every step
By His presence we have within
What God has placed within our hearts
We find we’ll be able to do
If we look for the opportunities
We’ll see the door to go through
We mustn’t let anything hold us back
But rise up and take our place
And be all that God wants us to be
With a fresh touch of His grace!
