16th April 2010 saw the first Church Dance for many years. It was a family night which everyone enjoyed
On Good Friday, 2nd April 2010, the service took the form of a Tenebrae Service
On 30th May 2010, Auchindrain Township was the venue for ‘Songs of Praise. With members of all the local Churches attending, it was a very nice evening of song (and no midges!)
Armistice Service was held on November 14th following the wreath laying ceremony at the cenotaph
Summer Exhibition and Sale Our Summer Exhibition and sale which takes place annually during the months of July and August is now over and has been a great success. This is our main fund-raising event each year and the exhibition provides to the visitor, an excellent snapshot of the Town of Inveraray past and present. We have raised over £6000 and would like to express a big thanks to all organisers, contributors and customers
In September 2010, the Church was lined with scaffolding on both elevations to allow for urgent repair work to be carried out on the gutters and downpipes and the repainting of the windows. As the Church is an ‘A-listed’ building, the windows had to be painted with a lead based paint as specified by Scottish Heritage. The outside of the Church is badly needing painted, but again we have to coat it with lime wash as it is not permitted to use modern paints. We have applied to Scottish Heritage for funding for this major work and it is likely to have to suffer another year of weather damage before the funding becomes available, which is very unfortunate
December saw carol singing at the door of the Church and many members of the public joined in.
The Sunday Club Christmas Service was held in the hall and the children took part in the ‘XMAS FACTOR’ with performances by Mary, Joseph, the Wise Men and many others. They were judged by the usual well known judges
