Jesus said: Love one another, just as I love you.

NESS BANK CHURCH
WELCOMES YOU

Welcome to Ness Bank Parish Church, a Church of Scotland congregation.

We are a Presbyterian church and part of the Reformed tradition.


Ness Bank Church’s vision is to be a church without walls reaching out in faith to our parish and beyond with the light, the love, the hope and the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

We serve Christ in many different ways at Ness Bank Church, but at the heart of all that we do week by week is our faith in Jesus Christ and central to that is our Sunday morning worship – come and see for yourself, you are assured of a warm welcome and you may just find it transforms your life.

Inverness Presbytery has appointed  the Rev. Ian Manson, B.A., B.D. to be Interim Moderator at Ness Bank during the vacancy period, and along with Professor Bill McBryde, he will be leading Ness Bank Church until a new minister is appointed.

Christmas Fayre

A huge thank to everyone for their support for the Fayre last weekend. The buzz and chatter in the halls was great. Think everyone had a great day. We raised over £2700! If anyone won a hamper and doesn’t want the basket, please just pop it back to the vestibule and we can use it next year. Keep a look out for the next newsletter for the date of next year’s Fayre

Breast Cancer Research

Recycled Bras: A few years ago, you were invited to bring along bras you no longer use to be recycled for charity. Clover Jackman has offered to collect old bras again and take them to the Bra Box in Curves Gym for the charity ‘Against Breast Cancer’. They take bras in any condition, which, if unable to be used, are dismantled and parts used to repair other bras. There will be a box in the vestibule for four weeks from today until Sunday 3 December for your donations.

Huge thanks are expressed by the Foodbank to all who contributed to the Harvest Appeal. The kindness and generosity from so many churches was overwhelming.
