World Day of Prayer Service – Dornoch – 19th March

The service for the World Day of Prayer postponed because of the weather a couple of weeks back has been re-scheduled for Monday 19th March, 2pm in the West Church Hall.  All are welcome.

Hub Church

We have done some rethinking of the Ardgay Services that Liz and Buster Crabb have kindly hosted for a few years now.  On the second Tuesday of the month, there will continue to be a Eucharist in Liz and Buster’s living room at 10:30am as before, but the services that used to be on the fourth Tuesday of the month are changing.

On the last Tuesday of each month (which is usually also the fourth Tuesday), Services of Prayer and Praise will be held in the Kyle of Sutherland Hub, at 5:00pm followed by fellowship in the Hub Cafe.

These services are open to all in Ardgay, Bonar Bridge and beyond who wish to meet together with other Christians in Prayer and Praise to the God who made Heaven and Earth and whose son Jesus Christ died for our Salvation.

All are welcome, whether established Churchgoer or just a wee bit curious.

Harvest in Dornoch

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was Harvest Festival in Dornoch today.  Collection and funds raised from the sale of produce donated will go to the Halo Trust, who “create safe and secure environments in war torn communities by clearing landmines, managing stockpiles of weapons and destroying unexploded ordnance.

St Finnbarr’s looked lovely in the sunlight, decorated with produce and flowers.  The good congregation were in fine voice, as they expressed their gratitude for all the good things that the Lord provides.
