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. We intend to have points for prayer available for distribution next Sunday.

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.

Fundraising Calendar:  The church calendar which includes scenic views from around the highlands is available now.   There are copies in the hall.   The price is £5.  Put your payment in an envelope in the collection plate with your name and “Calendars” written on it.  Cheques should be made payable to Tain and Fearn F.C. New Church Fund.

Jewellery Collection:  The New Church Fundraising Committee is organising a collection of unwanted jewellery, gold, silver or platinum, as well as disused silver cutlery and any watches or clocks. Broken or damaged items can be contributed also.  There will be a box at the door and another near the hall door to receive items.  It is best to put smaller items inside an envelope. 

Mobile Phone Collection:  Old mobile phones are also being collected as they can be sold to raise funds.   There is a box at both doors for any old mobiles you may have lying about.  Please erase any data and removes the sim card.   Do not include phone chargers.
