Easter time is upon us once more. This year we are planning two main services - one in Rosemarkie on Good Friday (see above), and the other in Avoch on Easter Sunday.
The Avoch service is entitled "Witnesses at the Tomb" and will look at the eyewitness evidence of those who clamed to see the risen Christ. The service will be held at 6.00 pm in Hillcrest, Braehead, AVOCH, IV9 8QL.
The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ forms the heart of the Christian Gospel message. Come and hear how the events of that first Easter weekend can impact your life.

Thanks to everyone who came to the illustrated talk on the life and legacy of Billy Graham. It was great to see Avoch Parish Church Hall filled, and we keep praying that those who need salvation will come to Christ!
Billy Graham's life spanned a century of amazing change, yet the simple Biblical message of salvation remained powerfully the same throughout the years. Millions heard the Gospel through his preaching, and his legacy will undoubtedly continue for many years to come.

The fishing communities of Scotland still bear the marks of a mighty evangelical revival that took place almost 100 years ago. The story of how God moved, people were converted, lives and communities were transformed is gripping and so relevant to our society today. Prepare to be thrilled, challenged and encouraged!

JOCK IN ACTION
Thanks to all who attended the TeaBreak talk on Jock Troup this afternoon - standing room only!
Jock Troup was brought up in Wick, Caithness. He was converted in Dublin while serving in the Royal Naval Patrol Service. On his return to Wick he threw himself into evangelistic activities. He was by trade a cooper, making barrels for the booming herring fishing industry. This led him to Great Yarmouth in 1921, and in October that year revival broke out. Jock was preaching in the open air to crowds of young men and women, many from the north / north east of Scotland. At the close of his message many fell to the ground crying to God for mercy. The revival quickly spread among the fishing community, with thousands eventually turning to Christ for salvation.
After an evangelistic ministry which led him all over the UK and to Canada and America, Jock died in the pulpit in Washington aged 58 years. His last words were "Ye must be born again".
The influence of Jock Troup and the "Fishermen's Revival" is still felt around the coastal towns of Scotland and eastern England today. Many Christians have heard past generations talk of the wonderful days of revival when scores were soundly converted.
Jock Troup knew that nothing less than total surrender to God was required. He was a man of fervent and noisy prayer, deep faith and a boundless zeal for souls. He wept copiously, mainly in private, over the fate of the lost. He may have been a man for his times, but his God is our God today, and revival is still possible ...

Thanks to everyone who came to the Gospel service in Avoch Parish Church Hall last Sunday. It was a memorable evening! Phil Coulson, a Bible teacher and Gospel preacher, spoke about the power of the gospel message, illustrating his talk by telling how lives had been changed in India and Sri Lanka.
In India, a former snake-worshipper had been converted, and the transformation in his life was amazing. In Sri Lanka, Phil told of a tea-picker who had come face to face with death and had been gloriously saved. Finally he related how a Sri Lankan witch doctor had been delivered from the power of Satan.
We were all left with no doubt as to the power that Satan exerts over men and women - but we were also impressed with the greater power of the Gospel message! Lives and destinies across the world are being changed. The Gospel is still the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes!

Recently, we held a "Marathon Reading of the New Testament" on Inverness High Street, to commemorate the life of William Tyndale.
Tyndale's passion was to have the Bible available in a language the common people would understand. Despite opposition and persecution from the established church, Tyndale printed his first New Testament in English in 1526. Eventually this would lead to other versions being printed, and ultimately the King James Version in 1611.
He paid the ultimate price. On 6 October 1536 he was strangled and burnt at the stake as a heretic. We owe a great debt to Tyndale, and others like him. Let's value the word of God!
And how about an annual "Tyndale Day" on 6 October each year? Contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you think this would be a good idea!
