Church News Sunday 20th January

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

BREAKFAST CLUB Breakfast Club for nursery and primary children is today at 10.20am.

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.

Informal prayer time before the morning service From 1015-1045 each Sunday the posh room is available for prayer spoken and unspoken, for our church, for the world and for current needs. Those who have participated come and go within that time so no need to stay for the half an hour. Feel free to drop in.

PASTORAL CARE TEAM Do not hesitate to contact the team if you require some help. This can be through your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349861591), and we will try to respond as soon as we can. Please allow time for arrangements to be made if you need to be taken to appointments.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY We continue in our study of the prophet Nahum and hope to complete study 2 and move on to study three. The third study’s key truth is “The only place of safety from the terrible anger of the Living God is the Lord God Himself”. As you can see, this is proving a very challenging but interesting time of deliberating on God’s word. Why not come along to find out more? You’d be very welcome.

SOUP LUNCH The next Soup Lunch takes place in the Church Hall on Friday 1st February starting at 12 midday. Why not join us for some delicious home-made soup, tea and biscuits and the opportunity to meet together for a chat. We look forward to welcoming you along.

GUILD The next meeting of the Guild takes place on Monday 4th February at 2pm in the Church Hall. The speaker will be Hannah Sutherland, Highland Support Refugees and her topic is Seeking the way to Safety. All are welcome to join this group to hear about this initiative. The Guild is for all and you will receive a very warm welcome.

The planned visit to Cameron House during the past week had to be postponed. Friday 8th February is proposed as an alternative date. Could Guild members (and anyone else) interested in taking part in this visit please let Janet Winchester (01349 865308) know if that date is suitable.

St Clement’s Guild are having Stella Reynolds to speak on Seema’s Project (Free to Live Trust) at their meeting in St Clement’s Hall on Wednesday coming (23rd January) at 2.30pm, and extend a warm welcome of members of other Guilds, and other interested people. This project, supporting the children of sex workers in the city of Pune in India, is one of those Ferintosh Guild has chosen to support. Some members have already heard this presentation and would strongly recommend it, although it is not a comfortable experience. Anyone requiring transport to this meeting please contact Janet Winchester.

BEETLE DRIVE We plan to hold another Beetle Drive in the Church Hall on Saturday 9th February starting at 6.30pm until approx. 9pm. Costs are as before £1 per adult and 50p per child to cover the cost of prizes and refreshments. This is always a fun evening for all ages. If you would like to participate in this, please add your name to the list at the back of the church to give us an indication of numbers. We look forward to seeing you there.

Highland Foodbank Sadly your generosity is still required and the list of items can be seen in the annex. Please remember things like toothpaste and washing up liquid are also useful if you cannot afford to put food on the table. Thank you.
