Church Services

There are two active churches in Colonsay, and joint services are held on alternate Sundays at 11.30 a.m. This arrangement is to permit united worship, and persons of all denominations are very welcome to attend. The parish is served by visiting ministers whose faithful support is highly valued by all members of both congregations.

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

N.B. The list of Preachers includes a number of vacancies due to the retirement of preachers who had been able to serve the parish for many years - if any of these dates are taken up, the schedule will be updated. We are always glad to hear from ministers who might be interested in joining our circulation list for vacant dates this year or in future years... the Church of Scotland session clerk is byrne[at]
