We were sorry to hear that John (Iain) Graham, Perceval Road, had passed away aged 76. We extend our sincere condolences to his widow Bessie Margaret, sons John Angus and Norman, John Angus’s wife Kathryn, and the  grandchildren Rachel and Daniel. We also remember Iain’s sister Kathryn and her husband Tom, together with all others in the extended family.

We pray that they will know God’s comfort in this time of loss.

Thanks from the Sailors’ Society

The Sailors’ Society is a Christian charity which supports seafarers throughout the world, both spiritually and financially. Prior to the Covid pandemic, many of our congregations donated Bibles to the work of The Sailors’ Society in Invergordon. Unfortunately, none of the Bibles could be delivered due to the Covid lockdown situation. Following the lifting of restrictions and the resumption of cruises, the Bibles have now been passed on to the charity for distribution among seafarers. The Sailors’ Society wishes to express their heartfelt thanks for the donation of Bibles, praying that the Word of God will be blessed to those who read it.



Big Free Youth Rally

The Big Free Rally is set to take place on Saturday 1st October at Smithton Free Church in Inverness from 11.00 - 15.00.

The event, which is open to everyone in P5 to S6, is a chance for young people to reunite with friends made at camp, although you don’t need to have been to camp to come to the Rally.

The title for the rally is Being Real. Rev Ben Fiddian will be speaking on the theme of integrity.
