After Morning Worship Fellowship : After Morning Worship today Tea , Coffee, Juice and biscuits will be served in the Church. Please stay behind for as long or short a time as you can manage and enjoy a time of fellowship with other members of the congregation and with visitors to our church.
Crèche: There is a crèche in the Church Hall behind the Church if anyone wishes to leave their children there during the morning service.
Sunday School and Youth Fellowship have closed for the Summer holiday period. They will next meet on Sunday 23 August.
The Ladies’ Bible Study Group has closed for the Summer recess. The group will next meet on Tuesday 25 August.
The Prayer Fellowship meet in the Church Hall at 7.00 pm each Tuesday evening All are welcome to attend.
New Communicant Members : Any Adherent who would wish to become a full communicant member of the church should speak to the Minister at the end of the service or contact him by telephone. We would dearly love to see more Adherents take up full communicant membership of the church and take Communion on Sunday 15 November.
In recent weeks two members of the congregation have come forward for baptism and to make their profession of faith. This was carried out in the church during the week with only the minister, Susan and some elders present. Please do not think that vows need to be given in front of the whole congregation
Church Magazine : Although the next edition of the magazine will not be published until late November / early December, it is never too soon to submit articles, prayers, stories etc. These may be placed in the Magazine Folder in the Front Vestibule. Articles may also be emailed to Trevor Dee at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jon Farr at email@example.com
Holidays : The holiday period is 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.
