The healing cycle of God’s grace: report of this morning’s sermon from Ros
Ros preaching

Ros and Philip Noble led the service this morning – Ros preached on today’s passage, John 7:1-31. She spoke with warmth and grace, and her words came to us with the gentle love of the Holy Spirit.

Her theme was how Jesus coped with all the pressures he faced – opposition from the Jewish leaders, rejection of his difficult teaching by many who had initially enthusiastically followed him.  How did Jesus manage to

Unforgettable Jesus
Bread of life

A summary of Donald Macquarrie's sermon this morning. ‘Once you have met me, you’ll never forget me.’ At the start of his sermon on John 6, Donald recalled an advert from the early days of Scottish Television back in the 1950s. ‘Once you have met me, you’ll never forget me, while rich Abernethy remains.’ It was a biscuit commercial.  But Donald reminded us that we can imagine Jesus saying the same words to us. ‘Once you have met me,

John 6:26-71 26 Jesus answered, ‘Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.

New from Foodbank
Foodbank Feb 19

We have received the following from Lorna: "We would like to thank the members and friends of Hilton Church for their very kind donations to Foodbank during 2018.

All of our Foodbanks in Highland were busy in the lead up to Christmas, and our
