AGM:  The AGM of Tain and Fearn Free Church will take place on Wednesday 29th June in the church hall.  The accounts for last year will be presented and there will an opportunity to ask questions at the meeting. 

New Website: The church now has a new website which can be accessed at http://tainandfearnfreechurch.highland.today/ – It was felt that this was necessary as the old website was difficult to update.  You will not be able to find the new site through Google until we redirect from the old website.  

New Church Fund: The total raised in this month’s New Church Fund Collection was £3205.  If anyone who contributes to the fund is a tax-payer, but has not completed a Gift Aid form, it would be beneficial to the congregation if you would consider doing that. 

Tain Gala Fundraiser:  The fund-raising committee for the New Church are organising a Baking and Plants sale table at Tain Gala on Saturday 2nd July.  They are looking for people who will provide baking and plants to be sold.  Donations should be brought to the hall on the Friday night between 7pm and 8pm.  If you are unable to deliver them there, call Fiona Robertson on 892 170 or Hugh Mackenzie on 894 254 prior to then.

 Alternatively you can deliver to the marquee on the Saturday morning.   Volunteers will also be required to man the stall during the day for even an hour or two at a time between 10am and 4pm.   Please consider helping out to share the workload.  Speak to Fiona Robertson or Hugh Mackenzie if you can cover some of the day.

Fearn Communion:   The communion preparatory service will be on Saturday Night at 7:30pm taken by Mr Mark MacLeod.  There will be a fellowship in the hall after that service.  The Lord’s Supper will be celebrated at the Sunday Morning service which will be taken by Rev.  A MacAulay.  The Sunday evening service will be taken by Mark Macleod and will be followed by a testimony and fellowship in the hall. 

Holiday Club: If anyone has any maritime or fishing equipment such as nets, buoys etc that could be used to decorate the hall in keeping with the All at Sea theme of this year’s club, could you please speak to Mairi.
