TWO years ago a group of Christians representing all of the Churches in the area decided to work together to open a Christian Drop-In in Forres.
In a recent prayer meeting we felt it was important to pray for active and new connections with churches and community as we move forward under our new name of 'Christians Together in Forres'. (Please note, the name is not 'Churches Together' -a familiar term which doesn’t describe us at the moment, and Christians Together conveys the inclusion of all Christians.) [See Footnote - Ed.]
We open every Friday from 10.00am - 4.00pm. Volunteers come from all of the local churches and together we aim to provide a Christ-centred facility which seeks to serve God and serve the community.
The purpose is to make available a non-denominational meeting place where all will be made warmly welcome in a relaxed environment. We serve teas, coffees etc.and a cheese toastie at lunch-times with suggested £1 donation.
We have a large Christian library and donations of books always welcome. We are also an outreach for CLC bookshops in Inverness and have new books and Christian gifts etc. sale or return on a monthly basis.
Ed footnote: The name Christians Together in the Highlands and Islands was chosen to reflect the nature of the and span of this web site, and the Forres folk were in touch with the Editor prior to adopting the new name for their group which – in like manner – reflects the ethos behind the work.
