Annual Congregational Meeting: 13th of September at 7.30pm

Hope Explored: We plan to run a three-week course beginning on the 24th of October. The course explores the meaning of biblical hope and touches on the key elements of what it means to be a Christian. This course is suitable for anyone who wants to explore further about the Christian faith. We will meet at Fortrose Free Church at 7.30pm on Tuesday evenings for three weeks, beginning on the 24th of October. Please do come along and bring a friend!

Community Groups: We hold our first community groups evening on Wednesday 6th of September at 7.30pm. There will be two groups, the
‘Town’ group and the ‘Countryside’ group. If you live in Rosemarkie, Fortrose or Avoch then you are in the ‘Town’ group and if you are in
Killen, Raddery, Eathie or anywhere else outside of the towns then you are in the ‘Countryside’ group. There are some signup sheets at the
door for you to indicate if you plan to attend. The town group will meet at the Manse and the Countryside group will meet at Niall and Emma’s

An Evening of praise with Ruth Campbell. Date: 3rd November. Ruth is a member in the Free Church congregation of Covenant Church Newmilns and is a talented Christian singer song writer. Put the date in the diary and come along and bring a friend.

The popular ETS Saturday Course is due to resume on Saturday 16th September. This runs once a month from Sep 23 to Apr 24 at ETS in Edinburgh but, good news, as with previous years we are invited to join a ‘satellite’ viewing of the lectures at Knockbain Free Church (North Kessock). These are normally 1 or 2 weeks after the live lectures. Although the lectures form part of a diploma in theology course which requires extra reading and writing essays, many people simply listen to the lectures and find them of great benefit in their spiritual growth. If you want to go along to the satellite viewings at Knockbain please send an email to Iain Gray by the 23rd of Aug and he will let you know the planned dates, times and cost. Niall and Emma attended the lectures last time round and thoroughly enjoyed it, if you have any questions please ask them.
