Midweek Meeting

You are welcome to join with us for our midweek meeting on Wednesday 11th November at 7.30pm via Zoom.  Rev James Maciver will lead the meeting.

In our current pandemic situation it is important not only to pray but also to know that as believers we are within Christ’s intercession, which is integral to our security. John 17 provides us with an insight into that intercession, so it has always been a precious chapter to Christians in every generation. Over the next few weeks we will study this chapter so that Jesus may become even more precious to us and for our spiritual growth and comfort.

Please contact stornowayfreechurch@outlook.com if you require the meeting ID and password.

Rev Kenneth I Macleod shares some more thoughts on Psalm 23 in this Pastoral Reflection for November.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me: your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil: my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:4-6

Last month we reflected on verses one to three of not only the best-known psalm, but one of the best-known sections of the Bible. This Psalm has been an inspiration, encouragement and balm to many a soul over the years. Now verse 4 tells us that the shepherding work of our Lord, who is the Good Shepherd doesn’t stop as life draws to a close - the shepherding takes over even in death. Death is the enemy that comes closer every day. We are powerless in its face and alone in its presence, as it closes round us, unless….we have the Shepherd. That is what makes “the valley of the shadow of death” so different for the Christian, because the Shepherd is with us. When all human care and support can no longer do anything for us, yet the Shepherd is still there.

Beloved friends,

As your ministers we want to thank you for your continuing support and encouragement. It means so much to us. As the congregation continues to experience restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, we regret that it has not been possible for us to return to our church buildings for public worship. Although we are glad for the online facilities that enable us to maintain gospel services, and greatly encouraged and thankful that so many are participating in these, we long for the day when we can return safely to meet in our church buildings. While some congregations have decided to return to the use of church buildings, in our own case the logistics of doing so are challenging, to say the least. In any case, it would be imprudent for us to return given the sharp increase in Covid infections over the past few weeks and with an outbreak also in the Western Isles currently being dealt with.
