Church News Sunday 25th January

SUNDAY CLUB AND FYF Sunday Club and FYF meet today at 10.50am. As always there is a Crèche for pre-school children each Sunday morning.

PRAYER GROUP The prayer group will meet again on Wednesday 28th January at 10am in the small hall.

PASTORAL CARE TEAM If you need our help, please contact either your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349 861591), and we will make every effort to be of assistance.

GUILD The next meeting of the group takes place on Monday 2nd February at 2pm in the Church Hall. We look forward to joining with the local group “Prospects” which aims to have fellowship and worship with those with learning disabilities and those without. Please come along and support this group and enjoy the company. All will be made most welcome.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The group will meet this coming Wednesday 28th January at 1.30pm in the Church Hall. This session we are examining the subject of Evangelism. We use the study guides produces by Scripture Union entitled LifeBuilders. A Life That Speaks is the topic being studied looking at Colossians 3:5- 4:6. We’d love to have you join us that afternoon for fellowship and study.

SOUPER SUNDAY Today there is a simple soup and bread lunch being served in the Church Hall immediately after the service which is being led by members of the Kirk session. Do come along and support this worthwhile cause, the Church’s HIV/AIDS programme, and enjoy some lovely soups and chat. For those who are tax payers, there are Gift Aid envelopes available in the Hall which enables your donation to go that little bit further.

LUNCHTIME FELLOWSHIP The next Lunchtime Fellowship will be held on Friday 6th February at 12 noon in the Church hall. The speaker will be Rev Doug McRoberts, recently retired from St Andrews Church in Malta. He will tell us something about the Church of Scotland’s work and connections in Europe, but concentrate on the Malta congregation and its “Out of Africa” project. This project supports refugees and migrants who arrive in Malta from Africa and the Middle East, often in very difficult circumstances. As it is one of the projects the Guild is currently supporting nationally, any donations will go towards the project. Mr McRoberts will also have available copies of a booklet telling the incredible story of one of the African migrants. These cost £3 in aid of the “Out of Africa” project. Please come along if you can. A warm welcome, not to mention delicious hot soup, awaits.

CROSSREACH The latest copy of CrossReach News and Prayer Letter is available at the back of the Church for those who have ordered. There are some spare copies for anyone who’d like to read about the award to Cameron House, Inverness and for the prayers submitted by Oversteps, Dornoch.

USED STAMPS If, like me, you are clearing up after Christmas, please remember to save any foreign or UK stamps for the World Mission council appeal. Perforations must be intact, and a margin of half an inch around the stamp(s) is preferred if possible. The recipient of the money raised in 2015 has not yet been posted on the WMC website, but as soon as I have this information, I will let you know. Janet Winchester.
