May God give us a greater understanding of His Holy Word.   +

Are you a victim or a victimiser?   Lets look at two great teaching moments in Luke’s Gospel and how they can help us break out of the cycle, where our choice is to be a victim or a victimiser. Continue reading “SERMON – EVENSONG”


VERY HELPFUL AND TIMELY ADVICE! Absolutely truthful and appropriate.

I don’t understand why prescription medicine is allowed to advertise on TV
or why anyone would think of trying one of the medicines after listening to
the list of warnings of possible side effects.   Suppose the NHS expanded their domain and got to regulate the wine business. Here’s a possible outcome of that control.

Do you have feelings of inadequacy, shyness, stress, wish you were assertive?   If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist about Cabernet Sauvignon.** See below **

Cabernet Sauvignon is the safe, natural way to feel better and more
confident. It can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the
world that you’re ready and willing to do just about anything.

You will notice the benefits of Cabernet Sauvignon almost immediately and, with a regime of regular doses, you’ll overcome obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want. Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past.. You will discover talents you never knew you had.

Cabernet Sauvignon may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use it, but women who wouldn’t mind nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it.

Side effects may include: Dizziness, nausea, vomiting, incarceration, loss of motor control, loss of clothing, loss of money, delusions of grandeur, table dancing, headache, dehydration, a desire to sing Karaoke and play poker.

Warnings: The consumption of Cabernet Sauvignon may make you think you are whispering when you are not, it may cause you to tell your friends
over and over that you love them, and to think you can sing..

The consumption of Cabernet Sauvignon may create the illusion that you are tougher, smarter, faster and better looking than most people.

Please feel free to share this important information!


*Scotch, Gin, Vodka, Tequila, or Rum may be substituted for
Cabernet Sauvignon, with similar results!

HolyLand 2019 (Rev Michael Last) e- B-Form


From caber tossing to parkour athletes, highland dancing to Indian runner ducks; the Gordon Castle Highland Games and Country Fair will be held on Sunday 20th May 2018 in Fochabers. Entering its eighth year, the annual family event looks to welcome 10,000 national and international visitors to the one day event in the north east of Scotland.


Last night Rev Michael, at Holy Trinity Church Keith,  gave a fascinating talk about the Holy Land and the tour which it is hoped will take place there next year.

An enthusiastic audience were shown what the tour would consist of and Michaels knowledge and expertise shone through as he gave us a ‘virtual tour’.

One person who had said that she came just out of interest but would not be going on a tour there told me later she had changed her mind and now looked forward to going.  It is my intention to go too – I have wanted to for years but never had the courage or time to make the effort.  However,  now would seem to be the right time to go.

Watch this space – Michael is going to let me have lots of information to put up on this website so do read it and do consider joining us next year – it will be the trip of a lifetime.
