Today, Sunday 29th November 2015 was the first service to be held in the newly refurbished church premises at Baugh. This was not the official opening, the plan is to have a series of events to be held towards the end of January.
This morning was one of the monthly ‘All Age Services’ and there was great excitement for the church in being in their own building. No wonder they are looking forward to these monthly events. There was great encouragement in having at least 45 people present; many of them being young families.
While recognising the effort put in by tradesmen and others within the church, the secretary John Bottomley expressed the church’s appreciation and gratitude for all the hard work put in by the project manager Ian Tainsh, presenting him with the means to have a short break on the neighbouring island of Coll.
In January the church will be meeting to prayerfully consider how best to use the building God has given them. They want to use the premises in all kinds of ways – not just for services – but as a gift to share with others.
On December the 24th there will be the first Christmas Eve Service to be held in the building for many years. On Christmas Day there will be a very special All Age Service.
The Church looks forward to welcoming you.
You don’t have to wait until Christmas Eve.
They meet regularly in An Talla.
Sundays at 11:00am
