News: Suspension of Services

The Kirk Session of Kinloch Free Church met on Friday evening to discuss the implications of the Western Isles being placed under Tier 4 COVID-19 restrictions. Given the escalating situation, it was decided that all services of public worship would be suspended until further notice. In the meantime, services will be broadcast on YouTube at 12 noon and 6pm on the Lord's Day and the prayer meeting will meet on Zoom at 7.30pm on Wednesday evening.

The decision was that of the Session alone and was made willingly, not under compulsion from the Scottish Government. The Kirk Session would like to emphasise their belief that the civil magistrate has no jurisdiction in the courts of Christ’s church, but only to give advice.

In light of the current dark providence in both our island and nation as a whole, the Session encourage the congregation to dedicate themselves to thorough self-examination, prayer and repentance, and to give diligent attention to the Word of God, both read and preached.
