Praying for the independence referendum

Rev Iver Martin, minister of Stornoway Free Church on the Isle of Lewis and Principal of the Edinburgh Theological Seminary, has written a helpful guide on what Christians can pray for in the run up to the independence referendum on Thursday 18 September. You can read the full article on the Free Church of Scotland website: http://www.freechurch.org

Over £35,000 raised for emergency Iraq and Syria appeal

Thanks to all congregations who have contributed so generously to the emergency Iraq and Syria appeal. So far over £35,000 has come in, and this will be split between Tearfund efforts in Syria, and the Federation for the Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East – which supports the work of Canon Andrew White, chaplain of St George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad. Please continue to pray for Christians and other minorities in these countries who are suffering in the Islamic State (ISIS) controlled regions.

Concern as Royal Mail opens 100 delivery offices on Sundays

A Free Church minister has criticised a decision by the Royal Mail to open 100 delivery offices on Sundays, adding that money being used to open these premises could be better spent reducing the price of stamps. Dundee minister Rev David Robertson described the development as a retrograde step, and also said it would create a two-tier system with huge swathes of rural areas across Scotland being excluded from the new service.

North-east Glasgow congregation begins four-month pilot

Please pray for Steven Hay, who is going to be leading services in Lennoxtown Free Church, near Glasgow, until the end of the year as part of a four-month pilot. Mr Hay recently completed theological training with Cornhill Scotland in Glasgow, and is originally from Airdrie. The Lennoxtown congregation hopes to run a Christianity Explored course in the near future.

Thanks from Highland Harmony Singers

Many thanks to all the folk, including children, who supported Highland Harmony’s last recital of psalms at Smithton on Saturday 6 September. It was a wonderful occasion and will leave many good memories! Alison Young from Ellon conducted, and Alistair Murray did the last item. Highland Theological College (HTC) Principal Hector Morrison gave a powerful message from Zephaniah on the God who sings, not only over his perfect creation, but also over ransomed sinners. Nearly £1,000 was contributed for the work of HTC, Dingwall. Many thanks again to everyone.
