Remembrance Sunday

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.

Retiral CollectionAt the end of the service, as you leave the church, there will be an opportunity to make a donation to The Royal British Legion Scotland.  Money raised during the Scottish Poppy Appeal is used to provide vital support to the Armed Forces community living in Scotland.

Please note that this collection is separate from the Offering taken during the service which goes to the work of the church in Portree and beyond.

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 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 will meet in the Manse at 7.00 pm on Tuesday evening   All are welcome to attend.

Preparatory Service :   A Preparatory Service will be held in the Church at 7.30 pm on Friday 17 November.

Communion :  Communion will be served at both morning and evening services on Sunday 19 November.

 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 19 November.

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.
