14 December 2019A Christingle Service
December 8th saw Morning Worship organised and led by members of our Kirk Session. The Christingle drama, composed by the Children's Society, comprised of a telling of the Christmas Story and an introduction to the Christingle as a symbol which can help us reflect on what the Christmas Story means today.
The gloomy skies outside during the service intensified the warm glows of light from the candles inside the church, the whole making a lasting impression on those present. Our thanks to all who helped to make it so.
02 December 2019We welcome our new Minister
There was a great representation from 'north of the bridge' when we joined the good folk from Coll, Connel & Dunbeg at the Induction of the Rev. Bezuidenhout to our linked Parishes on November 28th. After the Service, which was led by the Presbytery of Argyll, the bell of St. Oran's Church rang out joyfully and the large congregation followed a young lone piper down the hill to the Village Hall in Connel. Here a buffet feast, gathered from across our linked Parishes, awaited. We were treated to entertainment from pipes, voices, fiddle, accordian and the piano, so much talent. Community singing was joyful and the speeches were both fascinating and encouraging.
