It is strongly suggested you arrive early to assure seating, as this is the most crowded service of the year.

NOTICES & Dates for your Diaries
Message from the Management Board
Our minister, the Rev. Patrick O’Neill has now retired. We have many wonderful guest preachers to take the services over the next couple of months and hope to have a temporary minister in place to lead all services in the New Year. Meanwhile, we have elected an excellent search committee to seek a new settled minister. We hope to have someone in place in six months to a years’ time.
Have you visited the Chapel website lately?
There you’ll find Kerry Reid’s and Jane Crispin’s speeches, plus photos from the Farewell party and from Patrick’s last Sunday morning service at the Chapel. (rosslynhillchapel.org.uk/about-us/our-minister/ )
