Aid for Japan

Today we are taking a special collection to send to disaster relief for the Japan Earthquake.

Joint Service

The service this evening will be the monthly service with the Church of Scotland.   Although the service will be in Kyleakin Church of Scotland, it is our turn to host the service.

Faith Mission Convention

Please note that the service next Sunday evening will be led by the Faith Mission.   Their preacher for the weekend is Rev. Victor Maxwell of Acre Gospel Mission.   As their meetings on Sunday are in the village hall, it made sense to worship together and support their outreach.

Other meetings include:

Thursday – Kyle CofS, 7:30pm

Friday – Kyleakin CofS, 7:30pm

Saturday – Prayer meeting 10:00am (Kyleakin CofS)

Convention Meeting Portree CofS, 4:00pm and 7:00pm

MTW Team

Please note we are still looking for offers of accommodation for the four female interns we hope to have working with our congregations in June and July.   The team will be working jointly with ourselves and Plockton & Kyle Free Church, so ideally we should try to get half the team accommodated on our side, to share the load.   For ease of transport, the workable option on Skye is to put them team up somewhere in the Broadford or Kyleakin area.

If you are able to help with this, or know someone who might be able to, please contact Gordon.

Communion

The congregation will have communion on Sunday 17th April.   The preacher will be Angus Macrae, Dingwall Free Church, who will be take services on Saturday night, Sunday morning in Sleat, and Sunday evening in Broadford.

Anyone wanting to obey Christ’s command to remember his death in this way for the first time should contact Gordon or one of the other elders.   The Kirk Session will meet for this purpose on Friday and Saturday evenings after the services.

Finance Committee

After being postponed last week, the Finance Committee will meet in Sleat on Tuesday evening, at 7:00pm.   This meeting will go over the points raised by the recent Quinquennial Visit, as well as review the accounts for 2010, and set a budget for 2011.   It will be a busy meeting.

Ask.

Tonight we have our weekly meeting in Broadford.   After hearing God’s word preached, we have time for discussion and questions.   If you are a bit intimidated to ask questions at the meeting, you can text them to 07789 801 865.   Any questions are welcome, and any question demanding a more thorough answer will be the subject of a future sermon.   Please feel free to pass this number out to people.

MTW Thrive Mission Team

The Kirk Sessions of Sleat & Strath and Plockton & Kyle are hoping to welcome a team of American interns to work with us this summer.   The team will be lead by a student pastor from San Antonio, Texas, called Michael Novak.   The team’s funding will be covered from the support they raise in the US, principally from PCA churches there (the Presbyterian Church in America is one of the Reformed denominations in the US with whom we have close ties).

We hope to have the team with us for two months in June and July.   The team will consist of Michael (plus his wife and two young children), and four female and two male interns.   The interns will be university students.

At this stage we are looking for specific help with accommodation and transport.   To keep costs low we would like to be able to house the team in vacant homes during their stay.   So if you are going to be away during these months (even if only for part of the time) please consider offering your help in this.   If you know of friends or neighbours who will be away, please ask about this.

In terms of transport, we hope to have the team involved everywhere from Aird to Arisdale, so will need to give them some form of transport.   One option is for two-car families to give the team use of their car for a couple of weeks – with any insurance and running costs being covered by the team through the support they raise in the US (they were horrified to learn fuel is $10/gal).

These are two areas we really need clear commitments soon, as any additional costs from renting accommodation or transport will need considerably higher fund raising in the US.
