We are pleased to announce that with lockdown starting to ease we will be worshipping in person at Heylipol Church from Palm Sunday, 28th March, 11:30am. As before we are taking care to make sure we can meet in safety, and it is important that anyone who would like to attend worship should wear a face covering and listen carefully to instructions from the elder at the door.
If you are not yet feeling comfortable returning to worship in person we will be live streaming our services via our Facebook page and recordings will be available there afterwards.
The Remembrance Service on Sunday 11th November will be held at the earlier time of 10.45am. Tiree Baptist Church will join with us for this special service and it will be followed by Fellowship Lunch. In common with many churches up and down the land the church bell will be rung at 12.30pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Nominating Committee of Tiree Parish Church have invited the Rev Dr Scott Stein McKenna to preach on Sunday 27th May 2018, as Sole Nominee with a view to him becoming the minister of the parish.
Everyone is invited to attend the service at 11.30 am at Heylipol Church. After the service, a vote will be taken by members and adherents whose names appear on the Electoral Roll of the Congregation, for or against Dr McKenna’s election.
On the assumption that he will be elected, the Call will be open for signature immediately following the vote. A person may have their name added to the Call by requesting a proxy vote from one of the elders. The Call will be open for signature for the following three Sundays and by arrangement with the senior elder, Mr Pat Boyd.
Thank you to everyone who came along to Heylipol Church grounds throughout the afternoon of Wednesday 15th October. The planting of 250 daffodil bulbs is set to be an annual colourful tribute to loved ones who have bravely battled cancer. Donations raised £120. The main fund raising event will be joining in The Marie Curie Blooming Great Tea Party in 2015. Caroline MacLean
Welcome to Sermon Snippets – a brand new section of our website! From time to time a passage or prayer from one of our weekly church services will be featured. The aim is to encourage the reader to spend some quiet time thinking about a particular aspect of faith. To start us off, below is a prayer written by Elsie Black:
Stay nigh me Lord Jesus
The years take their toll
Stay close to me Lord to the end
Forgive my transgressions
Replenish my soul
My Saviour, Redeemer and Friend
When the call comes for me
I shall wake at your touch
We shall both take that pathway divine
Down by the still waters, green pastures and lush,
With my old hand clasped firmly in Thine
The pathway to heaven is paved with God’s love
Doors are open for loved ones to call
Be it saint, be it sinner
Does not matter one bit
There is room in God’s Heaven for all
So I’ll walk with my Saviour
We move slowly on
My long life is nearing its end
With a prayer in each heart-beat
I’ll welcome the New
With Lord Jesus, our Saviour and Friend.
