Our 11am service on Sunday is a joint service with the Church of Scotland in Gairloch FC. For any children attending we'll have something provided for them during the service as usual, and the service will be livestreamed through our Facebook Page and then uploaded to our YouTube page later. Refreshments will be served afterwards. There is no 2.30pm service as it's the first Sunday of the month.

This week there's no prayer meetings or Bible studies. The services on 1st January 2023 are at 11am, a joint service with the Church of Scotland folks in Gairloch Free Church, and 5pm as usual.
A reminder that the Community Carol Service is in the Gairloch Community Hall tonight at 6pm which will be followed by tea/coffee and mince pies.
Tomorrow the Christmas Day service in the morning is at 10.30am in the Church of Scotland, led by Stuart, and we'll have the usual evening service at 5pm in the Fellowship area. Alastair will lead this service with readings, a short reflection and carols. Please do come along and take your friends as well.
I hope and pray as you wake up to a new day, you would do so in the knowledge that the Lord's grace is sufficient, strengthening and satisfying for whatever he puts on our path for the week ahead. Psalm 23. 5 says, 'Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life', and celebrating the birth of the Good Shepherd is a timely reminder of the hope we have in Him.
The notices for this week follow:
The TFC Ladies' Bible study meets today at 2pm in the Fellowship area and will then adjourn until Wednesday 11th January 2023 (please note the change of day). The sum of £134 raised from the meetings will be given to the Haven Project in Inverness, which is a residential facility for children with additional needs.
Please pray for the meeting of Presbytery today at 10am on Zoom, that we will be given wisdom and direction in all we discuss and decide.
Community Carol Service in the Gairloch Community Hall at 6pm. All welcome to come along.
Joint Christmas Day service in the Church of Scotland at 10.30am led by Stuart and then a 5pm service in the Fellowship area led by Alastair Renton.
I do hope and pray you are all keeping well in these days of adverse weather and cold.
Looking forward to the weekend, the services are at 11am and 5pm in Gairloch and at 2.30pm in Torridon Hall, all DV. We're meeting in the Fellowship Area in Gairloch given the cold weather. It's comfortable, warm and can seat upwards of 50 people so we can easily accommodate everyone who comes along, and more. Sunday Club meets in the Creche which, again, is warm and comfortable.
Might I remind you that the DC are asking the congregation to use the opportunity to contribute towards Mission work and the purchase of 3 TV screens for the church if you so wish. Please mark any such contributions appropriately and separately from your freewill offering. If you get 'The Record', then please note the annual subscription of £33 is now due also.
