much to being in fellowship together at the Lord’s table and remembering the death of Jesus Christ, our Saviour, in the sacrament that He instituted. As is customary there will be a preparatory service on Friday 17th September at 7.30 PM. This service will be led by the Rev Gordon Macleod, minister of Stornoway High Church of Scotland.

All are welcome to this service, although we will still be practising a 1-metre social distance in the church, and we will still be asking for contact details to comply with track and trace requirements.

This letter is also being posted physically to the entire congregation, and hence we did not feel it was right to post the letter on the website until it had arrived via Royal Mail to people’s homes. Undertaking a mailshot of the congregation is an extremely onerous task, hence the reason we haven’t undertaken too many mailshots during the past year. Our grateful thanks are due to Karen, Agnes, Christine and others who printed, collated, labelled, enveloped and arranged postage for all these letters. Continue reading

Since the start of lockdown we have been unable to meet in person in our church building in Tarbert.
In the meantime, we continue to worship together on Sunday mornings using Zoom Video conferencing technology. This has proved to be a blessing to us as it allows us to meet and worship in our own homes. If anyone would like to join these meetings, please let us know, all that is needed is an email address, and we’ll add to you the distribution list. Recordings of services can be found on the website or on YouTube please search for Tarbert Church of Scotland.
