East Church Communion Token

In the modern day, the printed 'Communion Card' has superseded the Communion Token, and even that is now almost a thing of the past. Both have been used as a way of ensuring that 'only those shall be admitted to the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper who have been found qualified and entitled to receive it'.

This token was issued by the then Minister of the East Church Robert Smith in 1797.

I was lucky enough some time back to Obtain one of these Tokens from an Americian ...I suppose in real Terms ...It hasn't much Value ..but certainly a nice piece of History of Cromarty I treasure ..considering it came from the East Church, .. I grew up in the House next to it at 51 Church Street .....The interior of the church was beautiful ...and I hope they can keep, or restore it to that wonderful condition ....I attended it when I was younger for various services ...And found it had the most beautiful feeling of solitude when I sat in the seats .
I hope I may find that same solitude when I re visit it again very soon !
