St MICHAEL’S AUTUMN LECTURES

We have been asked to publicise the following lecture series to be held at St Michael & All Angels Church, Abban Street, Inverness.  IV3 8HH

SEARCHING FOR SUNDAY:

Explorations of Christian Faith and Doubt for Today’s World

Dr Brian Marshall

A series of four talks and discussions based around Rachel Held Evans’ book Searching for Sunday: loving, leaving and finding the Church  plus other material.  The chapters of the book are named according to the sacraments of the Church, hence the titles of the talks.  The late Rachel Held Evans has written a refreshingly open and honest account of why she and her husband have had periods of absence from the church, and yet have also been drawn back by the power of the sacraments and Christian community at their best.

Wed 23rd October

Baptism and Confession

Wed 30th October

Holy Orders and Communion

Wed 6th November

Confirmation and Anointing the Sick

Wed 13th November

All 8.00pm in St Michael’s Church

Abban Street, Inverness

Before retiring to the Highlands, Dr Marshall spent 30 plus years teaching Christian Theology in Leeds and Oxford.  The talks are intended for a wide audience; anyone with an interest in the reasons for being part of the church.

Church in community

We attended the Dingwall Primary Fair on 20th June.

For the first time, Dingwall Primary School held a fair to showcase what is being offered by local community groups. It was wonderful to learn about what is on offer in Dingwall – from laughing yoga to the WI, Scouts to soccer – even a beautiful spaniel advertising puppy classes! The school kindly offered a stall to the Episcopal Churches of St. James and St. Anne, so Rev. Julia Boothby, Tracey Bruce and Laura Symon attended to share a little about our church. As we will be launching our in Children’s Choir in September, we encouraged the children to make their own musical instruments, and hope to see some of them at choir in the new school year.
