Parish Church

Last Sunday’s service was conducted by the Rev. Monica MacDonald. On door duty was Janette Baird. Bible readings were by Lady Jane. The second candle of Advent was lit by Mackenzie Morris. The annual Christmas Fayre last Saturday realised the sum of £1312.54. Grateful thanks to everyone who helped in anyway to make this fantastic total possible. The funeral service for Bill Nimmo took place on Friday, December 5, and our deepest sympathy goes to the family. A warm invitation is extended to all to join us in a Lessons and Carol service this Sunday at the new time of 11 a.m. Anyone requiring the services of a minister, should contact the Rev. Monica MacDonald on (01324) 874807.
