POSTPONEMENT OF REOPENING

After a bit of discussion this morning, ( Saturday 9th January), the Kirk Session now think it would be unwise to go ahead and reopen the church next Sunday. Given how the national picture is looking just now, we feel it might be right for us to wait a while until the situation caused by the alarming surge in the new variant cases improves.

Happy New Year

The New Year letter this year is being posted on the website a bit later than usual. 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

COVID-19 SITUATION

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.

Time Stand Still

This weekend finds us in midsummer once again. Today (Saturday 20th June) is known as the longest day when we enjoy more daylight than at any other time of the year. It is a time that many of us have looked forward to, and try to make the most of these few weeks of summer. The weather has indeed been glorious lately, but from now on the days will get shorter and the nights will grow inexorably longer. As we contemplate the thought of a long Harris winter – it be might be a welcome thought for the Sun to stand still for a while – quite a while! Continue reading
