Church Hall

The Hall will be in use from 7am until 10 pm on Thursday 12 December 2019 as a Polling Place for the Coll/Vatisker and Back/Gress Polling Stations. The usual Polling Place at the Hut is not suitable for use in December, and the Church was asked if we could assist.

The Gaelic prayer meeting will be held in the Church on this evening.
