Your Voice in the Church

During the month of October the Free Church is Scotland is conducting a church-wide survey focused on communication.  The survey is for everyone who attends or is associated with our denomination.  The survey can be completed online via freechurch.org (News) or on the Free Church Facebook page.  Hard copies are also available at the door to complete and return by post.  Please take the opportunity to help improve our communications by providing your feedback.

 

 

Review of Services

 

In light of our present circumstances the Kirk Session has reviewed all aspects of service provision - as follows:

 

Morning Service

Our Sunday morning 11am service will continue on the basis of one English joint service with bilingual praise until further notice.  All Gaelic Psalms will be taken from our ‘Selection of Psalms for Worship’ praise booklet and is available at the door.  

 

Tong Monthly Evening Service

A monthly evening service will be held at Tong Mission House every third Sunday until further notice. 

 

Regular Midweek Prayer Meetings

Rev Calum I Macleod continues to lead the Wednesday evening prayer meeting focusing on the ongoing Beatitudes series.  The Thursday evening Gaelic prayer meeting is elder-led and coordinated by our Session Clerk, Mr Iain Mackinnon.  This arrangement will be reviewed shortly.

 

But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
