Communion & Church Lunch

This morning we will be sharing communion during our worship.   If you are visitor, and in good standing with a congregation elsewhere, you are welcome to join us at the Lord’s Table.   Please come forward at the appropriate time.

After the service today, we have a congregational lunch – everyone is welcome to remain behind to continue our fellowship together.   Please lend a hand to clear away the chairs, and reorganise the church for lunch.

Evening Service

This evening at Broadford we will be looking at the office of “Deacon” in the church.   Two weeks ago we were thinking about the office of Elder.   These two themes are vital to the welfare of our congregation in the long term – as we urgently need men to be ready to take up these offices in the congregation.   Please make an extra effort to come along this evening, to the Broadford Village Hall.

Next Sunday

Gordon will be away next weekend, preaching at communion services in Plockton and Kyle.    The services in our congregation will be taken by Innes MacSween, from Ness, Isle of Lewis.   Innes is a candidate for the Free Church ministry, and has just finished his university degree.   He plans to take a year out to work with UCCF (the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship) as a relay worker doing campus ministry with students in Cambridge.

Morning Prayer Meeting

Please remember the Sunday morning prayer meeting at 10:30am in Sleat.   The elders have committed to meeting at this time, but others are always welcome to join us.

Joint District Communion

The next joint district service for churches across South Skye and Lochalsh will be on the 23rd June, at 6:00pm in Kyleakin Village Hall.
