Hub Church

We have done some rethinking of the Ardgay Services that Liz and Buster Crabb have kindly hosted for a few years now.  On the second Tuesday of the month, there will continue to be a Eucharist in Liz and Buster’s living room at 10:30am as before, but the services that used to be on the fourth Tuesday of the month are changing.

On the last Tuesday of each month (which is usually also the fourth Tuesday), Services of Prayer and Praise will be held in the Kyle of Sutherland Hub, at 5:00pm followed by fellowship in the Hub Cafe.

These services are open to all in Ardgay, Bonar Bridge and beyond who wish to meet together with other Christians in Prayer and Praise to the God who made Heaven and Earth and whose son Jesus Christ died for our Salvation.

All are welcome, whether established Churchgoer or just a wee bit curious.
