A great time was had by all this week as the Youth Club travelled to Inverness to hear Christian Folk band Rend Collective. It was an early (4am) start on Thursday morning for us as we made our way to Stornoway to catch the first ferry to Ullapool. It was a beautiful day as we made our way across the Minch and we arrived in Inverness just in time for an afternoon of shopping. The doors opened in the Ironworks venue at 6:30pm and we got ourselves a great spot right up at the front near the stage. The band were supported by Guvna B, an urban contemporary gospel rap artist who got the crowd on their feet. The Rend Collective then took to the stage and certainly did not disappoint singing songs from their new album “Good News” as well as many of their earlier hits. The Band put in a great performance with lots of energy, light, dry ice and even a bubble machine. It was lovely to see some familiar faces from other churches across the Highlands & Islands too.
After the event we made our way to our accommodation at the Inverness Youth Hostel for some snacks and then bed. It was another early start on Friday morning and after a quick costa coffee run we were on our way back to Ullapool. A few snoozes were had on the ferry after a full CalMac breakfast and we made it back to Tarbert safe and sound at around 2:30pm.
Thanks to all who made this trip possible for our youth club, the congregations, the ACTS Group the Kirk Session, CalMac Ferries, The Scalpay Minibus Committee and the leaders who went along on the trip. Below are a few pictures and videos from our trip.
