Walk of Witness – Good Friday – Ardgay and Bonar

Bonar/Arday Walk of Witness

Good Friday 19th April 2019

Start Bonar Health Centre/Bradbury Centre 10:15am*

End Ardgay Stores and Highland Cafe about 11:30am

The walk will consist of six stops along the way, with a variable amount of walking between them. There is room for at least a few cars at each stop and so it will be possible for those who cannot walk the whole route to participate by adjusting the amount of walking required to suit their needs.

At each stop, there will be a Reading from Scripture, a short Reflection and a Prayer. As we leave heading towards the next stop, we will sing a hymn and carry a wooden cross as witness to Christ’s Sacrifice.

*Those with cars and who wish to do the walk, may leave their cars at the ‘Barn’ (Kyle of Sutherland Dev Trust) car park by 10:00am and we will organise transport to get them over to the start in Bonar, which will be at 10:15am. This will mean that your car will be there for you when you are ready to leave, rather than having to wait for a lift back over to Bonar to pick up the car.

Tain CoS Film Club – 12th April

Film Club Evening:

Friday 12th April 7:30pm

Entrance free.

Tain Church of Scotland Hall

“Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for young Bart. After failing at a college football career in an attempt to please his abusive father (Dennis Quaid), Bart leans into his active imagination and his love of music. Eventually Bart writes one of the most inspiring and beautiful songs, ‘I Can only imagine’. This is a moving true story of how abuse and broken-ness, are transformed into something powerful and restorative.”

Following the film, there will be refreshments.

Lent Study Groups 2019

This Lent the Study Groups will focus on the Sacraments: what are they, what do they do, why are they so important in our tradition and even how many are there?  The five sessions will provide the opportunity to explore these questions, and is always the case other questions that arise out of the discussion in a friendly, supportive environment.

This year there will be two groups, both will be held on Wednesdays on 13th, 20th & 27th March and 3rd & 10th April:

  • 2:00pm at James and Anna’s house in Spinningdale
    (if you want to come and don’t know where that is, just ask)
  • 7:00pm in St Andrew’s Hall

Come to whichever is most convenient and if that varies from week to week, you can mix and match.  If you can’t manage to all five sessions, just come to those you can – they will each be largely self-contained.

Sessions will be a little over an hour long and will be followed by refreshments and fellowship.  All are welcome, you don’t need to be a fully paid-up member of the Scottish Episcopal Church, or indeed any church.
