Aid to Nepal : A cheque for £1,357.30 has been sent to the Disasters Emergency Committee to aid the people of Nepal following the earthquakes which have hit that country. In addition the recent Sunday School, Youth Fellowship and Crèche Coffee Morning raised the wonderful sum of £526.13 which will also go to aid for Nepal. Grateful thanks are extended to our young people and their leaders for all their work in raising this money and to the congregation for their continuing generosity.

Retiral Offering : A Retiral Offering will be taken at both services next Sunday. These collections will go towards the costs of major projects in our church buildings.
Holidays : The holiday period will soon be upon us and members of the congregation will be visiting many different parts of the country. If anyone visits a church elsewhere and finds that, like Portree Parish Church, spare copies of a magazine are available to visitors then the Magazine Committee would be extremely grateful to receive a copy. These can provide ideas for future articles in our own magazine
Any magazines obtained can be placed in the Magazine Folder in the Front Vestibule.
