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.

Sermon Recordings: If anybody wishes a copy of any sermon as an MP3, via e-mail – please e-mail your request to Tom Walker on tom@tain.co.uk stating which sermon you would like.

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.

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 church hall in Tain on Friday night between 7pm and 8pm. If you are unable to deliver them there, call Hugh Mackenzie on 894 254 or 07791 622 668 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. Speak to Hugh Mackenzie if you can cover some of the day.

Camps Cook: There is an urgent need for a Chief Cook for the Free Church Camp in Comrie from 16th -23rd July.   If you can help, please get in touch with Laura MacAulay at the Free Church Offices in Edinburgh.
