News and Coming Events

Holiday Club

Today, we welcome the mission team from Lewis as they worship with us.   John, Niall, Michelle and Ruth will be helping out with the Holiday Club.   The club will be running each morning this week, between 10:30 and 12noon, at Bun-sgoil Shlèite.

BBQ – All Welcome

There will be a Barbeque at the manse on Friday evening (7th August), food being served at 6:30pm.   There’s an open invitation to the whole congregation, as well as any families who come along to the Holiday Club.   Please inform Dolina if you have any special dietary needs (or if you want your kids to avoid fizzy drinks!)

Court Case

Despite expectations of a very long wait, Lord Uist announced his opinion in the Broadford Buildings case on Friday.   The ruling is clearly in our favour, and so we should now be looking to God to lead us into the next steps to be taken to put this matter behind us.   The denomination’s Legal Group will be meeting in two weeks time, and the FC(C) have three weeks in which they can lodge an appeal, so there is no rush to take further steps just yet – please keep the matter in prayer.   We should also not forget that among our fellow believers in the FC(C) there might be feelings of bitter disappointment at how this has not gone their way, and it might appear uncharitable of us to take hasty steps at this point.

Broadford Work

The Kirk Session have been very much of the mind that any new work in Broadford would likely not start until after the Buildings dispute was settled.   As this now looks set to be resolved sooner than expected, it would be good if the members in the Broadford area could begin to meet for concerted prayer in the coming weeks.   Could members in the Broadford area please wait behind on Wednesday night, after the mid-week meeting, to discuss arrangements for this?
