SERVICES AND MIDWEEK MEETINGS

While we are all being asked to 'stay home', there will be no services or other meetings anywhere in the parish. Instead we are meeting for live online services. The weekly church notices (with details of how to link in) are being sent by email. If you are not receiving these, and would like to be added to the church email lists, please email Lesley at lesleyinskye@yahoo.co.uk.

SUPPORT

If you are having to self-isolate and need shopping or anything else, please get in touch with one of your elders and we'll make sure people are matched with those who can do shopping for them. Equally, if you know of anyone who might be on their own and needing help.

PRAYER

Please pray for all those who are on their own or anxious, and for those in the emergency services working on the front line. And let us all not worry our selves but put our trust in God.

Philippians 4:6 says...

Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks.

KEEPING IN TOUCH

There are plans to help us all keep in touch, including...

HTC CONFERENCE DAY

Saturday 29th February: HTC is holding its biannual Conference Day/Open Day and visitors are very welcome!

 

HOLIDAYS FOR REFUGEES

Following the successful hosting of Syrian families in the Parish in October, another opportunity is being planned for the week 6th to 10th April. It is expected that this will be a smaller group, with 3 of the previous host families taking part again. However, there is an opportunity for anyone else in the congregation who would be keen to take part this time around. If you are interested or want to find out more please contact Jean Gillies (01471844281 or jeangillies@btinternet.com). Even if you are not in a position to host, there will be opportunities to help in other ways, perhaps by providing a meal or organising a social event.

This may be the last opportunity in the foreseeable future to take part in this project as the funding for it runs out in the summer and future funding is uncertain at this point in time.

 

KILMORE WINDOWS

Kilmore Fabric Fund has now launched its appeal to raise money toward the badly needed window replacement project. We have already had some success in grant applications but need to demonstrate effort by the local congregation and community if we are to have further success. If you’d like to donate you can either use the online page (https://www.gofundme.com/f/kilmore-church-windows) or make a payment direct to our Church of Scotland bank account, which will already have your gift aid information set up, if appropriate. Bank details as follows: Strath and Sleat Church of Scotland - Sort Code: 80-05-83 - Bank Account: 00930508 - Reference: Kilmore Windows. Please share the appeal page as widely as possible.
