Our Praise :  :  Normally at our morning services the items of Praise are taken from Church Hymnary Third Edition (CH3) and those at evening services are taken from Mission Praise (MP).

If you feel more comfortable sitting during the items of praise, please feel free to do so.

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 & Youth FellowshipThe groups meet every Sunday during the school term.   Sunday School meets initially in the Church before moving to the Church Hall.  Youth Fellowship meets in the Church Hall at 11.00 am.

The Ladies’ Bible Study Group meets in the Church Hall on Tuesdays from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon.   All ladies welcome.

The Prayer Fellowship meets in the Manse at 7.00 pm each Tuesday evening.   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.

Church Magazine : As Easter falls very early this year (01 April) and does not leave a great deal of time for you to prepare and submit articles (please), it has been decided that the first magazine of 2018 will be published between Easter and Pentecost (20 May).

Articles may be placed in the Magazine Folder in the Front Vestibule.   They may also be emailed to Trevor Dee at trevordee@gmx.co.uk

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 01 April.

 

Women Across the Highlands : This year’s interdenominational women’s day conference will be held in Smithton – Culloden Church, Inverness on Saturday 19 May 2018.  Details of the programme for the day including the Seminars and Guest Speakers, along with the Booking Form are available in the Front Vestibule.
