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 resume today after the February school holidays.

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.

Church Magazine :  One week to go !  To date, very little material for this coming magazine has been submitted by members of the congregation.  Please remember that Trevor is the Editor and not the provider of all the articles.  Your magazine can only be a truly Portree Parish magazine if you contribute to it.

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 trevordee@btinternet.com

The closing date for the submission of items is Sunday 28 February.

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 27 March.

Congregational Board / Kirk Session :  A joint meeting of Board members and Elders will take place in the Manse at 7.30 pm  on Thursday  03 March to consider the Church Accounts for 2015.   Kirk Session will meet immediately after this meeting.

Copies of the Draft Accounts and, for Elders, Kirk Session Minutes and Agenda are available in the Front Vestibule.

Church AGM : Please note that the AGM of the church will be held in the Church Hall at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 22 March.
