Our fundraising Tea Towel makes an ideal gift for many occasions. Priced 6.50 it is excellent value for such a quality item. So any time you need a gift please think 'Church Tea Towel'. Tea Towels can be gift wrapped & posted direct, saving you any hassle. Purchasing our tea towel contributes towards the running cost of St John's, particularly at this time of reduced income.

Vestry Secretary's Report

Annual General Meeting

The date of the Annual General Meeting is still to be confirmed. The Vestry are considering whether this will be held over zoom or in the church building. Once confirmed, we will communicate this on the website at stjohnswick.org.uk, through email and by telephone.

Attendance at Church

It is still necessary to book a place for each service. If you are on the rota to do a reading or intercessions, you are automatically added to the list for that Sunday. We are allowed to sing again, although masks must continue to be worn. The first Sung Eucharist will be on Sunday 4th July but we have been enjoying singing some favourite hymns already.

Toilet Project

We obtained an updated project cost from Norbloc, due to the passage of time. The construction costs have risen to 79,068, taking the total to 87,963 (excluding VAT). We have pledges for funding of 65,500 to date. This leaves a shortfall of 22,463.

The Sub Committee have submitted an application to the Adapt and Thrive Programme for 10,000. Decisions are awaited from the National Churches Trust for 15,000 and the Landtrust Landfill Fund for 13,000. We have to "over apply" for funding as we may not be successful with each application.

The building warrant application has been submitted to Highland Council, and the fee of 626 paid from the toilet account. This account currently stands at 5375 as the All Churches Trust funding of 3000 has been paid in.

We have written to the Diocesan Registrar for some legal advice on the preferred sewage connection. A structural survey of the area where the new door will be knocked through will be carried out by Fairhurst Engineering.

Planning permission has been extended to 21 March 2022.

Sea Sunday

Sea Sunday will be marked on Sunday 11th July this year. The past year has been especially difficult for international sea farers, as they have been unable to disembark at ports or return home due to travel restrictions. The Mission to Seafarers has been supporting crews across the globe by providing protective equipment, basic supplies and phone cards so they can contact their families. The pictures of the "Ever Given" container ship stuck in the Suez Canal brought it home just how many of our vital supplies arrive by sea. If you would like to donate towards the work of the Mission to Seafarers, there will be a retiring collection on 11th July.
