you.   Those wishing the Common Cup should sit on the organ side of the church and those wishing the Individual Cup should sit on the pulpit side.

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.

Our Praise : At Morning Worship today the accompaniment for our praise will be provided by Lian Na Rose and taken from Church Hymnary (CH).  Our praise at the Evening Service will be taken from Mission Praise (MP)

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

Crèche:    There is a crèche in the Church Hall behind the Church if

anyone wishes to leave their children there during the morning service.

The Prayer Fellowship : The group meets in the Church Hall at 7.00 pm each Tuesday evening.   All are welcome to attend.

Holidays : The holiday period is now 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.
