Church News Sunday 4th February

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

PRAYER GROUP Prayer meetings continue on Wednesday mornings at 10am in the Church hall. Prayer is the essential powerhouse of the Church and your participation would be greatly valued. The small group is very friendly and there is no pressure to pray aloud if you do not wish to.

PASTORAL CARE Please don’t hesitate to call on the team for help. Either contact your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349 861591), and we will do our very best to assist. Please allow time for arrangements to be made to take you to appointments.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The group will meet next on Wednesday 6th February at 1.30pm in the Church Hall.  We continue to use “Living a Life of True Worship” from Precept Ministries. These are stand-alone studies which do not require “homework” to be done. Maybe you would find this a good introduction to Bible Study if you haven’t been previously. Do give it prayerful thought and try to join us. You will be made most welcome.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe takes place in the Church Hall on Wednesday 14th February from 2pm-3.30pm. Why not drop in for some tea/coffee and home baking and the all important chat? We look forward to welcoming you there.

GUILD The Guild meets tomorrow afternoon, Monday 5th February, at 2pm when we will hear from Barry Mackay about Bernardos Lighthouse Project in Inverness.
