Sunday School Outing

The Sunday School outing will be taking place next Saturday (22nd June).   We are going to the Clan Donald Gardens this year, so please meet at the Clan car park, at 11:00am, on Saturday morning.

Morning Prayer Meeting

Please note, the morning PM is cancelled next Sunday, due to the joint service at SMO.

Joint District Communion

The next joint district service for churches across South Skye and Lochalsh will be on the 23rd June (next Sunday), at 6:00pm in Kyleakin Village Hall.   The Preacher will be Donnie Macleod (retired, Snizort Church of Scotland).

Opportunity to Serve

After many years administering the (Monthly) Record distribution in the congregation, Margaret MacKinnon has decided to step back from this role.   We are very thankful for her work in this.

Distributing the Record is fairly straight forward – the magazine is delivered in bulk to one address in the congregation, and then the distributor makes sure everyone who wants a copy gets one.   A quarterly bill should go out to with the magazines, asking people to pay for them through the collection plate.   There is a list of people who receive the magazine, but no money is handled directly.

If you are interested in taking on this role, please speak to Gordon as soon as possible, so that we can arrange for the magazines to go to your address in time for the next edition.

Minister’s Annual Leave

Gordon will be on annual leave for two weeks from Thursday 4th – 18th July.    In the event of pastoral emergencies, please contact the elders in the first instance.

Cheerful Givings campaign launched

The Free Church of Scotland has launched an innovative campaign encouraging members and adherents to consider giving more of their money to the Lord’s work. Entitled ‘Cheerful Givings’, based on the text from 2 Corinthians 9:7, postcards and posters have been distributed to every congregation offering a fresh, positive and simple guide to giving financially to the Free Church. There will be up to four seasonal mailings throughout the year, as well as a short update featuring special projects like the Free Church Youth Camps and the Govan church plant.

University chaplain explores science and Christianity conflict on Skye

A senior Scottish university chaplain is to challenge the myth that science and Christianity are completely incompatible at a special talk in the Isle of Skye next week. On Saturday 22 June Rev Dr Alistair Donald from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh will speak at Dunvegan village hall on the topic of ‘has science buried God?’. The event has been organised by Duirinish Free Church and begins at 7.30pm. All welcome.

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.

Psalms for a Summer Evening in Greenock

The annual Psalms for a Summer Evening event takes place in Greenock Free Church on Friday 14 June.

Comments at Assembly

Sharing this for the encouragement of our own folks in Sleat & Strath – a very humbling report from Iver Martin, minister at our denomination’s largest congregation and principal of our training institution. If you go 51 minutes in, Iver was speaking in response to the Home Mission Board’s report. God is good.

Joint Service – This Evening

Next Sunday we will host the monthly joint service with the Church of Scotland.   The service will be addressed by Iain Alasdair Macdonald of SASRA (Soldiers’ & Airmen’s Scripture Readers Association).   Iain has spoken at our joint fellowships before, and it will be good to welcome him once again.   The collection on the night will go towards supporting the work of SASRA.

Evening Service – Next Sunday

Just as last week we were looking at the qualification for Elders (so that we would better understand the qualities we should be praying for among our men), next week we will be looking at the office of “Deacon” in the church in the same way.   These are really one-off events, and not themes I want to preach on too often, but are vital to the welfare of our congregation.   Please make an extra effort to come along on Sunday evening, to the Broadford Village Hall.

CWI Meeting

Christian Witness to Israel – a Jewish Evangelism organisation – are holding their annual Scottish tour later this month.   They will be speaking at Kyle Free Church on Thursday 30th May at 7:30pm, and in Tigh-na-Sgire in Portree on Friday 31st May at 7:30pm.   Please make every effort to go along to one of these events – Paul Morris, Nick Stead and Mike Moore are definitely worth hearing, particularly as there are incredible stories of God working to bring the Gospel home to the Jewish people.

Communion & Church Lunch

As Gordon will be away the second Sunday in June (at the Kyle Communion) we will move our own communion forward to the first Sunday in June (2nd).   Anyone wishing to profess faith for the first time, or join the congregation, should talk to Gordon soon, to arrange to meet with the Kirk Session.   We also hope to have a light lunch that Sunday, at the Sleat Church.   Please see the organisation sign-up sheet in the lobby.

Denominational News

Increase in attendance at Free Church services
The number of people attending Free Church services has increased over the past five years. Statistics showed that an average of 12,639 attended worship each week last year, up from 12,431 in 2007. The number of people under 30, when compared to 2007, had increased by almost 30 per cent.

Two-year moratorium agreed
Any committee-funded posts will require approval from the Board of Trustees after an immediate two-year moratorium was approved by the General Assembly. The move was taken in light of reductions in budgets to the Free Church’s biggest spending committees to ensure that expenditure did not exceed income. It will affect all vacancies and any new posts which are funded by committees. A special group will also explore strategic priorities for the denomination and report to next year’s Assembly.

New College principal appointed
Rev Iver Martin has been appointed as the new Principal of the Free Church College. The Stornoway Free Church minister has accepted the role on a two-year part-time appointment. He will spend his time between Stornoway and Edinburgh during the academic year.

Temporary arrangements for vacant Chair of Old Testament
Due to the temporary moratorium imposed on centrally supported posts, the Assembly decided it would be inappropriate, at this time, to make a full-time permanent appointment for the vacant Chair of Old Testament at the College. The College Board will make temporary arrangements and bring proposals to the October Commission of Assembly as a matter of urgency.

Name change for College approved in principle
The General Assembly has voted in principle to rename the Free Church College as the Edinburgh Theological Seminary. As part of its vision for the future, the College Board said this would attract interest from wider evangelical church circles and show Gospel-work co-operation. It also hopes to offer wider training for church planters, evangelists and apologetics for members. A report will be brought to next year’s Assembly.

Rahmat memorial fund set up by International Missions Board (IMB)
The IMB have announced the Rahmat Memorial Fund, in memory of the late missionary to northern India who recently passed away. The fund will help his young family as well as ongoing ministry in the area. More info coming soon.

Plea to Kirk evangelicals
Ecumenical Relations convener Rev Dr Iain D Campbell gave a gracious and loving plea to brothers and sisters in the Church of Scotland after the national church approved ministers in same-sex relationships. Dr Campbell encouraged commissioners to seek evangelical unity across Scotland.

Govan church plant approved
The church plant in Govan will begin later this summer with Rev Norman Mackay leaving Falkirk.

Group to look at 2014 referendum
The Free Church is set to explore the place of Christianity in an independent Scotland, ahead of the independence referendum in 2014. A special working group has been set up and will report to next year’s General Assembly.

Note of Thanks

Thanks to the ladies who were in all afternoon on Thursday cleaning the church.   It was a big job – and much appreciated.

Summer Duty

Please check the rota for welcome and coffee duties.   If you are unable to cover any of the dates indicated, please alert Gordon as soon as possible.

Tonight’s Evening Service

At next week’s evening service, we will reach 1 Timothy 3.   This chapter addresses the qualifications for elders and deacons.   As one of the more pressing concerns we face as a congregation is a lack of eligible men to serve as elders, I want to request that as many as possible make the effort to attend Sunday evening’s meeting in Broadford next Sunday.   The thrust of the sermon will be looking at what we need to earnestly ask God to provide for our church.   Please make an extra effort to attend.

Joint Service – Next Week

Next Sunday we will host the monthly joint service with the Church of Scotland.   The service will be addressed by Iain Alasdair Macdonald of SASRA (Soldiers’ & Airmen’s Scripture Readers Association).   Iain has spoken at our joint fellowships before, and it will be good to welcome him once again.   The collection on the night will go towards supporting the work of SASRA.

General Assembly – Prayer Meeting

Please note the meeting on Wednesday night at Kyle Free Church Hall.   Our own prayer meeting and midweek fellowship has been cancelled to allow for people to make the Kyle meeting a priority.   Please go over if you are able.

CWI Meeting

Open Door Cafe – Kyle

The Open Door Cafe in Kyle will cease operation on Friday, 31st May, partly due to staffing problems, but also due to a change in the venue’s management.   The cafe on the 31st is going to be a celebration of all the cafe has achieved over the years.

Communion & Church Lunch

As Gordon will be away the second Sunday in June (at the Kyle Communion) we will move our own communion forward to the first Sunday in June (2nd).   anyone wishing to profess faith for the first time, or join the congregation, should talk to Gordon soon, to arrange to meet with the Kirk Session.   We also hope to have a light lunch that Sunday, at the Sleat Church.   Please see the organisation sign-up sheet in the lobby.

Keep up with goings-on at the Assembly

You can follow sessions at the General Assembly live via the video feed on the St Columba’s Free Church website: http://stcolumbas.freechurch.org/ Text updates will be posted at each interval on the Free Church website http://www.freechurch.org/ where you can also download reports from.

Joint working group to establish strategic priorities

The Board of Trustees is seeking to establish a representative working group to consult with the major spending committees across the denomination with a view to bringing a plan to the 2014 General Assembly that will align the Church’s vision with available finance.  It says a strategic vision must be in place prior to agreeing financial priorities. As an interim measure with immediate effect, the Board of Trustees is proposing that no vacancies, funded by church committees, be filled without its prior approval. This would affect the vacant positions at the Free Church College, which the Board recommends should be filled on a temporary basis – pending the working group’s plan. It hopes that the Free Church can find smarter ways of working, applying innovation and ingenuity to both its expenditure and future mission. The underlying shortfall for 2012 was around £300,000.

Free Church College to consider name change

The report of the College Board suggests that the Free Church College be renamed the Edinburgh Theological Seminary, to broaden its appeal to wider evangelical circles. The Board is considering the provision of additional courses of a less academic and more practical nature, which could utilise part-time lecturers and modern technology to reduce costs. A supplementary report, not yet released, will contain details of nominations for College Principal and Old Testament Chair.

Other items of interest from the General Assembly reports

The Home Missions Board has exciting news of a church plant in Govan, which would begin over the summer. The Free North congregation in Inverness has submitted an application for permission to call an assistant minister, to work with Rev Colin Macleod. The International Missions Board has updates from missionaries around the world. The Ecumenical Relations Committee expresses its desire for greater co-operation amongst evangelical churches, and notes of talks with the APC and also with some in the Church of Scotland. The Communications Committee also has papers on the redefinition of marriage and the impact of Scottish independence.

Summer Duty

With tourist season just beginning (and maybe better weather, too!), this year it’s worth making sure we are working hard to welcome visitors in a helpful way.   Following this morning’s service, please remain behind if you are willing to help with:

  • Door Duty / Welcome Team – we are looking principally for members who can greet people arriving at services, distribute bibles and psalm books, and sit near visitors to help them, e.g. finding their way about Sing Psalms.
  • After Service Tea / Coffee – we hope to put a rota in place for people to provide a cup of tea or coffee after the service.   Because we normally rush off after the service, it’s very difficult to take time to talk to visitors, and share in fellowship together.
