Daviot / Dunlichity Newsletter

The past few months have been busy ones for our church and members. At the beginning of October, we had a successful and rewarding Harvest Thanksgiving, when we were able to donate a large amount to the Foodbank in Inverness. Then we had to have a meeting of the congregation to formally agree the sale of Dunlichity Church. The outcome of that meeting was that the congregation agreed to sell the building on the proviso that the community have first option to buy. It will now go to the General Trustees in Edinburgh to expedite the sale.

At the beginning of November we had a really special service of baptism. It was lovely to be able to welcome young lives to the church community. Then on Remembrance Sunday, we moved out of the church building to hold the ceremony of remembrance down at the War Memorial at Daviot. Again it was a very moving and poignant ceremony. Thank you to everybody who took part, and to Val Rose who brought her music box so that we could sing to music. Thank you to Val too, and Cath MacLean, for organising our Coffee and Craft mornings in the church. It is a fun morning with all sorts of things being crafted, whilst enjoying the chat with neighbours and friends – the coffee and tea are good too!

But now we begin to look forward to Christmas, and the birth of our Lord Jesus. We do have plans in the making – some of which have yet to be finalised – so keep your eyes on Facebook and the website!
