Church News Sunday 15th July

HOLIDAY CLUB Our wonderful Sunday Club & FYF leaders have a well earned break for summer and we are grateful for the team running our new holiday club over the summer holidays. The holiday club will be on every Sunday from 10:50am-12noon and will meet in the hall for games, crafts, snacks and loads of FUN!

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.

Informal prayer time before the morning service Come along when you can, leave when you want: for ten seconds or ten minutes. Prayer and reflection time in the hall posh room every Sunday between 10.15 and 10.45 a.m. (Psalm 65:2) Because you answer prayers, people everywhere will come to you.

PASTORAL CARE If you need some assistance, please contact the Team who are very willing to help. Either contact your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349861591), and we will do our best to help. Remember to allow time for arrangements to be made to be taken to appointments.

HIGHLAND FOODBANK Please give in your usual generous manner to the bank. Your help is still desperately required to keep individuals and families from despair. All non-perishable foods are welcomed especially tinned meat, vegetables (such as tinned potatoes) tinned custard, long-life milk and juice. These are the main requirements but some treats for the children during the school holidays would be much appreciated. Thank you for all you already do.

HIGHLAND SUPPORTS REFUGEES At a recent Session meeting, it was decided that over the summer we would collect toiletries for refugees still living in camps in Europe. There are many thousands of such, including families with children, and sick and disabled people, who came from Syria and many other war-torn countries two years or more ago and are still living in camps in Greece and other southern European countries, waiting for their asylum claims to be processed. Highlands Support Refugees collects a wide range of items at their Conon Bridge base in the old Ferintosh House (top of Sellar Place, next to the bowling club) to send out  these people.. Items they have requested are; soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, moisturisers, baby wipes, nappies, “adult nappies”, sanitary towels. Please place any donations in the crates which will be placed in the Church vestibule throughout July and August.

PASTORAL DUTIES Rev’d Stephen Macdonald can be contacted on 864273 if required for any Pastoral duties.
