NEWS FROM OUR CONGREGATION
PASTORAL CARE Our pastoral assistant, the Rev Arthur Sinclair, is on holiday until 21 July. The minister, the Rev Peter W Nimmo, will be on holiday from 12 July until 2 August inclusive. For pastoral matters, please contact your elder, or the Rev Morven Archer (Locally Ordained Minister at Crown).
EQUIP CONFERENCE The Kirk’s Mission and Discipleship Council is holding an event which we hope will enable us to take forward our congregational plan for the future. Featuring inspiring speakers, practical ideas and useful resources for the congregation. Choose from a range, including: Messy Church, Fresh approach to exploring the Bible, Investigating the Invisible Church, and managing Change/Navigating Transition. The event is on 20 September from 10.00 to 15.45 at The King’s Factory Smithton. As many people as possible, particularly Elders, are encouraged to go along. If you would like to go, and for more details, please contact Session Clerk Linda Philip
CHURCH OPENING The Old High Church is already open to visitors during the summer, but we are aiming to have it open Monday to Friday, 10am to 12 noon and 2pm to 4pm. This is much appreciated, both by residents and visitors. It also, incidentally, brings in a large amount in donations. We still require more folks to help out with this mission to the city centre. It’s a fascinating task, and needs little training, just a the ability to give a warm welcome. If you can help, even just for a little bit of time, please contact Margaret Sutherland as soon as
WORD FOR TODAY New copies of Word for Today, daily Bible readings and comment are available free in the vestibules at each church.
CROSS REACH Cross Reach news and prayer letter (June to September 2014) now available at church doors.
ANNUAL INVERNESS INTERFAITH PICNIC at WHIN PARK on Saturday 2nd August, from 11.30am. All welcome. Do come and share the multicultural fine food, friendship and fair or fickle weather! (Entering Whin Park by the Ice cream stall, we’ll be by the boating pond.) For more information contact John Barbour.
NATIONAL YOUTH ASSEMBLY 2014 Young people aged between 17-25 inclusive are reminded them about the National Youth Assembly. It is being held at Gartmore House, Stirlingshire from 5pm Fri 15th till 5pm Mon 18th August 2014.
The theme for the weekend is ‘My Father’s House’ and we’ll be exploring how we worship, how we think the church should be spending it’s money, how we can do ministry intergenerationally and how we can support Christians in the Middle East. Alongside all of that there will be the usual mix of small groups, workshops, worship, late night sessions and social stuff (a masquerade ball and other things to celebrate our 20th birthday are being planned) – it’s all very exciting. It is a great opportunity for young adults to let the Church of Scotland (on a national level) know what they think about the issues discussed so we hope as many as possible are able to join us. Booking is available online The booking deadline has been extended to TODAY to allow as many as possible to sign up.
