Communion
The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper will be dispensed, God willing, in the congregation at the morning service next Sunday 4th December. There will be a pre-communion service on Saturday evening (3rd), at 7.00pm (not 7.30!), followed by a meeting of the Kirk Session.

A congregational fellowship will be held in the hall after the service on Sunday evening. Scott Macleod will interview Calum Murdo.

The practical arrangements for the Lord’s Supper will be the same as applied to the most recent occasions of communion.

Anyone who wishes to take communion for the first time is invited to meet with the Session on Saturday evening, accompanied by a friend if they wish.

The Session will also be delighted to welcome anyone who wishes to join the communicant membership by a certificate from another congregation.

Please contact either of the ministers if you wish to ask about, or discuss, anything in advance of the communion services.

Our prayer is that God will encourage in advance all who wish to remember the Lord’s death and that he will bless both word and sacrament to us once again.

The Christian Institute – Scotland Tour Autumn 2022
As part of their tour The Christian Institute will host a meeting on Tuesday 4th October at 7.30pm in the Cabarfeidh Hotel, Stornoway.

The topic this evening will be ‘Fighting For The Family’.

When the Lord’s people were surrounded by their enemies, Nehemiah encouraged them not to be afraid, to remember the greatness of the LORD and to fight for their families (Nehemiah 4:14). In our day too, when Christian families are facing hostile, secular ideologies, the need to fight for the family has never been greater. Join us for these special meetings to find out more.

Pastoral care of students

We would like students and young people who have just left home to further their education or work on the mainland, and who are linked to our congregation, to be aware of our continued pastoral care for them. We would appreciate if parents, or grandparents/guardians, could provide us with names and contact addresses so that we can maintain contact and let them all know of our continued prayers for them as they begin a new chapter in their lives.

We also wish any who are commencing courses locally every encouragement and God’s blessing as they follow their chosen career.

It would be appreciated if you could email the required information to the office at [email protected] by Friday 30th September.
