National Day of Prayer:  The Free Church National Day of Prayer is on Thursday 30th November.  There will be no Wednesday meeting that week and more details of what is planned for the Thursday will be included in next week’s bulletin.

Fiona Christie:  Fiona who was at one time a member of Tain Free Church expects to finish her work with Latin Link in Colombia next year.  It is expected she will return from Colombia around Easter and continue to serve with Latin Link until July.   Fiona still has to raise £1500 towards her commitment to the projects she is currently involved in.  If you would like to make a contribution towards that, you can place that in an envelope, marked Fiona Christie, in the collection plate.


New Church Fundraising Events
