Favourite Hymns

The Top Ten had to be a top 16 because it was so close. I had expected a list of maybe 20 favourites and a handful of others, but such is the breadth of taste, appreciation and knowledge of our erudite congregations that 128 Hymns came up!

Here is the list of headliners, followed by votes given. All the top ones, but by no means all the choices, are in CH4 – the latest edition of the hymn book. Martyn Gibson.

Glenorchy Kirk Bicentenary

The banner and the Dalmally Historical Association exhibition have drawn much interest, as have personal photos of various occasions in the church. Many thanks to all. Let’s keep thinking back and looking forward. May God bless the next 200 years.

Crianlarich Church Friday 9th September 7.30pm Entry by Donation

A great opportunity to have an enjoyable evening & support the church.

Flower Festival

The displays representing the Dalmally Show and the Church of Scotland were two amongst lots of beautiful exhibits. Many thanks to all who took part in any way. Over 350 folk came through the doors over the three days.

This wooden cross stands in Glenorchy Kirk – you are welcome to write the name of a person or place or situation for which you are praying or would like others to pray. Please pray for the names already written there.

Bridge of Orchy Church and Dalmally Church Hall have been insulated. Glenorchy Kirk is next with just some time required to do the job. Hopefully folk will notice the difference in temperature as well as a reduction in bills and a reduced carbon footprint.
