WELCOME : We are delighted to have with us, today and next Sunday, Mr Edward Burrows from Glasgow who is holidaying on Skye with his wife. Mr Burrows has attended services in Portree Church on a previous visit. He has experience of playing the organ in various churches in Glasgow and offered to play the organ for us at our morning services on the 14th and 21st August. We are obviously very grateful to Mr Burrows and gladly accept his kind offer to play in our church.

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.
