Remembrance Sunday

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.

Retiral Collection : At the end of the service, as you leave the church, there will be an opportunity to make a donation to Poppy 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.

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 Fellowship meet every Sunday during the school term.   They meet initially in the Church before moving to the Church Hall.

Communion : Communion will be served at both services on Sunday 15 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 15 November.

A Food Bank is not just for Harvest Thanksgiving : Please remember that the needs of the less fortunate exist all year round.

Coin Boxes : Coin Boxes may now be handed in again. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

Church and Church Hall Cleaning Rotas : Volunteers are sought to fill the few vacant slots in the above rotas.   This would only involve a total of 4 – 6 hours per YEAR   Anyone willing to assist with this should contact Ann MacLeod (611 271)

Door Duty / Readers :   Door Duty volunteers are sought to give a welcome greeting to people as they come into the church and to take up the offerings.   Readers would read the lessons during services.   If you would be willing to help with either or both of these duties please see Donna McEwan or Bill Marshall.
