 National Prayer Day:  Wednesday 30th November has been designated as a National Day of Prayer & Fasting by the Free Church to pray for our nation and for the church.   As well as our evening prayer meeting we intend to hold a morning meeting for prayer both in Tain and Hilton between 8am and 9am.  We would encourage as many as possible to come along to these meetings.  You can drop in at any time during the morning meeting and leave when you need to.   There is a list of prayer points at the door. 

New Church Fund:   The final collection of this year for the New Church Fund takes place next Sunday.   Donations for the new building should be put in the plate as you leave the service or in a marked envelope as you enter.  

 Prayer Meetings:   The usual pattern of mid-week meetings in Hilton is as follows:  On the third Wednesday of the month, we have the Congregational Prayer Meeting where the Tain and Fearn ends of the congregation join; and this alternates between Tain and Hilton.  On the fourth Wednesday, we have the joint Seaboard Meeting which alternates between the Free Church, the APC and the UF churches.   Every other Wednesday, the meeting is in our own hall.  

Sunday School Party: We plan to have a party for the Sunday School and crèche children on Saturday 3rd December from 12 noon — 1.30. Come along with your friends. There is a sign-up list at the door, for anyone who is able to help with food.
