HIGHLAND FOODBANK Thank you all those who support this necessary work. The Foodbank is in need of potatoes, fruit, ham, corned beef and tomatoes – all tinned, of course. If you could help with donating any of these, please place your contribution in the basket in the annex of the Church.

SEAFORTH HOUSE SERVICE There is to be a service in Seaforth House at 3pm today. Around ten residents participate in the worship. Usually there are three or four of us who help in different ways. We can always use more helpers so if you would like to come and support this then just come along. The service usually lasts for half an hour.

Kirk Session Minutes A folder has been placed in the Annexe of the Church containing copies of the Minutes from recent Kirk Session Meetings for use by members of the Congregation. Please do not remove the folder from the church and leave it in the annexe once finished with. Minutes of future Kirk Session meetings will be added once they have been agreed as a correct record. The folder also contains a copy of the recently published Parish Profile.
