PASTORAL CARE TEAM The members are willing to assist you in whatever way we can by doing small tasks or taking you to appointments etc. Please contact either your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349 861591), remembering to allow plenty of time for suitable arrangements to be made.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The ladies are continuing on their Lenten Pilgrimage using Barbara Mosse’s book “Welcoming the Way of the Cross”, week 4 “Me and my shadow”. These studies are proving to be so interesting and challenging. We’d love you to come and join with us. We meet on Wednesday 9th March in the Church hall at 1.15pm. (Please note the slightly earlier time for this week)

STATED ANNUAL MEETING The Stated Annual Meeting of this congregation will take place on Wednesday 16th March at 7.00pm in the Church hall. The accounts for the year 2015 will be presented to the congregation as will reports on the work of various Church groups throughout the year. All are encouraged to come along.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe takes place in the Church Hall on Wednesday 9th March from 2pm-3.30pm. Why not drop in for a cup of tea or coffee, home bakes and the all important chat? Whether you have joined us before, or not, we look forward to welcoming you there.

GUILD The next meeting of the Guild will take place tomorrow, Monday 7th at 7.30pm in the Church Hall. We look forward to paying a visit to the Faroe Islands with the expert help of Elizabeth Blackburn and her pictures. Do come along. You don’t have to be a Guild member if you’d just like to see a part of the world not many of us have been able to go to. We’d love to see members and visitors alike to enjoy the show and fellowship together.

Members are reminded we have an invitation from Castle Street Guild to Afternoon Tea on Wednesday 9th March at 2.30pm. Please let Guild Team know if you plan to attend.

WORLD MISSION COUNCIL NEWSLETTER FAIR TRADE FORTNIGHT 29th FEBRUARY. The latest edition of the World Council Mission newsletter focusing on Fairtrade fortnight is now available. It includes information on the Fairtrade movement, a prayer for the movement and a rather delicious recipe for banana pancake with chocolate. Christion Aid suggests trying to substitute five items on your normal shopping list for Fairtrade versions during the fortnight. If you cannot find five ask the manager why the shop is not stocking more – and try the Green Kite at the old railway station in Strathpeffer. Another idea is to have a Fairtrade breakfast which is where the pancakes might come in handy.
