Portree Release Fundraising Calendar

Portree Free Church has released a 2023 calendar to help raise funds for its building project.

A 2023 calendar conveying the wonder of God’s handiwork on the Isle of Skye is being sold to help raise funds for Portree & Bracadale Free Church of Scotland’s new church build. 

A selection of stunning photos has been captured by church treasurer Dr Charles Crichton and collated into a calendar, which this year also has the days in Gaelic.  The venture is the latest fundraiser for the new church building project at Shepherd’s Way. A preview is available here.  

Charles said: “We’re glad to report that steady progress is being made at No 10 Shepherd’s Way. The framework of the building has now been erected, the roof is nearly completed, and the external blockwork is slowly rising.  

Building project taking shape

“Over the last few months, it has been exciting to see the building ‘grow’ out of what has been a barren field. However, we must be patient for the next while because there will be a lot of internal work carried out. The next major visible development will be the installation of the windows, likely in early December. From that time, the building will be ‘wind and watertight’.  

“Our finances continue to be a challenge, but we’re slowly getting there with fundraising and generous donations. We are constantly seeing evidence of the goodness of our God.” A host of fundraisers have taken place to help raise funds for the new build. 

If you would like to obtain any calendars, the congregation is suggesting a minimum donation of £6 per calendar.
