News and Special Events
We're shortly hoping to start a monthly Kirk Club at Moss Park Home. A group from the congregation will meet residents to share chat, some familiar hymns and a Bible story. The first will be on Tuesday 8th May at 2.00p.m. and after that they are scheduled for the first Tuesday afternoon of each month. Speak to Richard Baxter if you are interested in being part of this group.
Kilmallie Singers have their spring concert in the church at 7.30p.m. on Saturday 28th April, when they will be performing Mozart's Requiem. Tickets will be available on the door.
Instead of the Saturday soup lunches which have taken place in the summer in previous years, we are now going to have a monthly soup lunch after church once a month. The first will be on Sunday 4th February. We will simply serve a choice of two soups with some crusty bread. There is no charge - just make what you think is an appropriate donation. It will continue on the first Sunday of each month (apart from April, which is Easter Sunday).
On Sunday 21st January we welcomed seven new elders to our kirk session and we look forward to their role in our congregational life.
Wedding themed service
On Sunday 28th January our 11.30a.m. morning service is wedding themed. We will be singing a range of wedding hymns and using wedding readings. Anyone with a wedding planned (or thinking about it) is invited to come along.
Ella Gill is undertaking a readership training placement with us for six months from January 2018. Ella is Session Clerk at Acharacle Church, and has previously served as Presbytery Clerk, Presbytery Moderator, and an Interim Moderator at Duror and Glencoe. We welcome Ella to our team in Duncansburgh MacIntosh.
Survivors of bereavement by suicide have started a local group for anyone affected by the suicide of a family member or friend. We have provided the Upper Room as premises for that group in to meet. Phone Joyce on 01397 700958 for more information.
Wider Mission Team
The wider mission team has recently sent off some of the funds they raised through soup lunch to twin several of our toilets with toilets in developing countries.
An unusual visitor took part in a recent wedding in the church. This barn owl flew the rings in for the bride and groom.
