Bible Study: 1st Peter 

As a congregation we want to continue studying God’s Word so that we will be encouraged and enabled to focus upon our Saviour during this unsettling period. For that reason, over the coming weeks we’re going to be looking at 1st Peter on Sunday evenings at 6pm.

Using the Bible Study Booklet from the Good Book Company (https://www.thegoodbook.co.uk/1-peter-living-well-on-the-way-home), we hope to come together for a Bible Study on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm and discuss the relevant passages from 1st Peter via Zoom. 

If you would like to receive a Bible Study Booklet and join our Bible Study on Wednesday evenings via Zoom, please email Murdo at [email protected]

Pastoral Care

In order to love our neighbour and protect those who are most vulnerable in our congregation, the Kirk Session have taken the decision to suspend all pastoral visitation until further notice. However, we want to continue to provide pastoral care and keep in touch by means of telephone, email, WhatsApp and Facebook. If there’s anything that we as a Kirk Session can do to help you through this uncertain time, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Presbytery Prayer Meeting

The Western Isles Presbytery encourages us to come aside and pray in our homes every Monday evening at 8pm. Please join with us in prayer, as we pray for our nation at this time of crisis.

 

“Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy riven side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Save me from its guilt and power.”
