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 are closed for the Summer holiday period. They will next meet on Sunday 21 August.
The Ladies’ Bible Study Group is now closed for the Summer holiday period. The group will next meet on Tuesday 16 August.
The Prayer Fellowship meets in the Church Hall each Tuesday evening. From this Tuesday the meeting returns to its normal starting time of 7.00pm
All are welcome to attend.
Pastoral Visits : The Minister asks that he would be kept informed of any member of the congregation who is ill, in hospital or would welcome a visit from him.
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 7 August.
Retiral Offering : A Retiral Offering will be taken at both services on Sunday 31 July. This collection will go towards the costs of major projects in our church buildings.
Church Magazine : The next edition of our magazine is due to be issued in August. We welcome items on your favourite hymns, poems, humorous stories, etc.
We would welcome especially items on “The Environment” and “Childhood Memories of Summer”
Please submit your items as soon as possible to enable an early start to be made on this edition. Items may be left in the folder in the Front Vestibule or, preferably, emailed to Trevor Dee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing Date for articles is TODAY
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.
