Welcome To Colonsay Churches

Church Services

Church Services are held every Sunday in the Church of Scotland Parish Church at Scalasaig, at 11.30 a.m. These are joint services with the Baptist Congregation, and the arrangement is to permit united worship.  Ours is a notably ecumenical community, and persons of all denominations are very welcome to attend. The regular congregation also includes persons of the Methodist, Episcopalian, Evangelical and Roman Catholic traditions. The parish is served by visiting ministers whose faithful support is highly valued by all members of the combined congregation. The Parish Church is just opposite the hotel, there is reasonable disabled access. 

Everyone is welcome at all services, regardless of denomination - and please do not hesitate to bring your children. The outline schedule is given via www.colonsaychurches.org , and further details will be found upon the notice-board at the shop. For any further details, please phone 01951 200320

The Church of Scotland parish of Colonsay and Oronsay (No. 211300) is a registered Scottish Charity No: SC031271
