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. You can 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 After a really interesting start being made to our fourth study in the series looking at Nahum, we hope to complete this and begin study 5 entitled “I am Against You”. Intriguing? Why not come along on Wednesday 6th February to our next meeting in the Church Hall at 1.30pm and find out more. A warm welcome awaits.

BUNDLES OF FUN For all parents/carers, babies + toddlers, every Thursday in the hall from 1pm-2:30pm. Come along and relax over a cup of tea/coffee whilst you watch the children play.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe takes place in the Church Hall on Wednesday 13th February from 2pm-3.30pm. This gives the opportunity to meet up for a chat while enjoying some tea/coffee and home baking. Why not drop in, even for a few minutes? We look forward to welcoming you there.

COMMUNION Our next Communion services will be on Sunday 3rd March. This is always a good opportunity for anyone who wishes to profess their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour to do so by becoming a member of the local church. Please speak to the minister or any elder to find out more about faith and commitment.​

GUILD The next meeting of the Guild takes place tomorrow afternoon 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. If anyone has any clothes, bedlinen, blankets, sleeping bags or tents in good condition for which they have no further use, these would be gratefully received by The Highlands Support Refugees. Bring items to the Church today, give to a Guild member, or come along to the meeting tomorrow.
