The Word This week – 16th April

Dear Friends in the Northwest

This Sunday is the second Sunday of Easter; there will be services at Ullapool and Achiltibuie (Coigach Community Hall). My thanks to Fr David who has prepared this week’s reflection. Next week is the third Sunday of Easter when there will be services in Ullapool, Lochinver (The Assynt Centre) and Kinlochbervie (The Ceilidh House).

The next meeting of the monthly Bible study group, looking at Parables, will be on Monday 17th April at 5.00p.m. at Joy’s house in Ullapool.

On Saturday 22nd April, Good News for Everyone (formerly Gideons UK) have a meeting in The Green Room at The Ceilidh Place at 7:30pm. They will be sharing new information about resources available, their activities in Wester Ross and further afield, as well as enjoying a time of fellowship together.

On the afternoon of Saturday 13th May, I am planning another reflective walk, this one at Leckmelm Garden, similar to that which some of us enjoyed at Lael Forest Garden last September. If the weather is awful, the reserve date is Saturday 20th May.

Also on Saturday 13th May, the Scottish Guild of Servers is having a training day for members and prospective members at the Cathedral from 9.30am to 2.30pm. If you are interested in attending, please contact me for further details and the application form.

On Sunday 14th May, Bryn Higgs will be giving a presentation after the service in Ullapool (over coffee) about his experiences as a UN Human Rights observer in Palestine. Some of us remember the short introduction he gave before he went to Palestine last October, so this the follow up.

Finally, I will be on holiday from Monday 24th April to Friday 5th May. In my absence, Fr David Higgon will be taking the services in Ullapool and will provide any necessary pastoral cover for the Ullapool and Achiltibuie congregations. Fr John Green will provide pastoral cover for the Lochinver and Kinlochbervie congregations. My thanks to them for this support.

With love and prayers

Rev’d Clare
