Church Magazine : 

Articles for the Summer edition are now sought.  They could be typed and either placed in the Magazine Folder in the Vestibule or, preferably, emailed to the editor at     Handwritten articles can still be placed in the folder.

New Communicant Members :   Anyone 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 people take up full communicant membership of the church and take Communion on 04 August.


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 editors 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.
