Sunday 25 September

The Sacrament of Baptism will be dispensed at the close of the morning service on Sunday 25th September in the church. There will be no Gaelic service in the Seminary that morning and Rev James Maciver will conduct the service.

Prayer Point: Central Sunday School would appreciate the prayers of the congregation as they look to recruit another one or two teachers to help teach in the Sunday School for a couple of years.  The Sunday School is growing all the time for which we are very thankful but would value prayer that suitable teachers would be found to help out. Campaigners are also recruiting for the coming year so prayer for new volunteer leaders would be appreciated for these groups also. Thank you.

Caberfaith meets on Tuesdays in the Caberfeidh Hotel between 7:30 and 9pm.

Prior Biblical knowledge is not required.  No question is considered stupid.  No commitment to weekly attendance is expected. Why not come along and join us. Perhaps as a Christian you could bring along an interested friend. If you want to find out more please get in touch with Roddy Cunningham (07900 807375) or Cala Mackenzie (07818 076163).  You will be most welcome.
