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 Please call either your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349 861591), if you need help from the Team.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY We embark on a series of studies looking at Faith and Creation, Connexions. On Wednesday 22nd May at 1.30pm in the Church Hall, we will begin with “The Fruit”. These studies have a Celtic theme. Please think about joining us at this time of fellowship, worship and study. We’d be delighted to have you come along.

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.

CHRISTIAN AID The week was launched with a very successful Soup Lunch last Sunday.  There was a real buzz in the hall as young and old tucked into a wonderful selection of soups, bread, cheese, cakes plus tea & coffee. Thanks to all who helped prepare for the event, those who gave their time and energy on the day, not forgetting the food brought along by so many. The grand sum of £228.45 was generously donated at the lunch.

The weather has been good for the volunteers shaking cans at households in the area this past week and their efforts are much appreciated along with those collecting at the Co-op in Conon on Friday and Saturday. Further update following the final count.

GUILD The Guild is planning an outing to Inverness Floral hall on Monday 3rd June. Members, friends and others interested are all most welcome. Please see the sheet on the table at the back of the hall for details and to sign up.

MIRIAM SINGERS There is to be a Miriam Singers and Iain’s Boys Country and Western Night in Rosskeen Parish Church Hall, Alness on Saturday 25th May at 7.00 pm. The singing will be followed by a finger buffet and treats. A warm invitation is extended to Ferintosh to come along and join us

HIGHLAND FOODBANK Thank you for your amazing generosity over the past few weeks. It would be great to think the need is no longer there. However, we all know that the foodbank is so necessary for some individuals and families to cope with 21st century living. Please place any donations of non-perishable food, toiletries and cleaning materials in the box in the annex. Thank you.
