Highlands open air service on Sunday
July 27, 2012
The second open air worship of the summer at the historic Burn of Ferintosh takes place this Sunday (29 July) at 4pm.
The burn has had a special place in the spiritual lives of generations of Highlanders, and lies between Alcaig and the Cromarty Bridge by the New Urquhart Cemetery.
Around 150 people attended the previous service at the burn at the beginning of June.

For the past several years the Free Church congregation of Ferintosh and Resolis have continued the historic pattern twice-a-year in the summer months.
The link dates back to the 1843 Disruption, when Urquhart parish minister Reverend Dr John MacDonald left the Church of Scotland.
It is said that 10,000 people came to the first Free Church communion service at the burn of Ferintosh, and the congregation worshipped there for about a year until the present building in the village was built.
