This term we are looking at “The Armour of God – Living in His strength”, material written by Lynn Penson. Each piece of God’s armour will be presented and help us to best use it to God’s Glory. Do come along if you can. A very warm welcome awaits!
PASTORAL CARE Please contact the Team if you need help. Either speak to your elder or Anne Mackay on 01349861909 and we will do our best to be of assistance.
HIGHLAND FOODBANK At this harvest time, this congregation has been asked to donate the following items – tins of ham; packets of sweet biscuits; tins of custard; jars of pasta sauce; tins of potatoes; shower gel/ shampoo. Other congregations have their own items to collect. This year just over 6000 people throughout Highland have been helped. The need remains high. This level of help can only be maintained due to your generosity.

CRECHE We could do with a few more helpers, especially as we now have children attending more regularly. Please speak to Janet Winchester if you can help.
