Additional Church Services from Sunday 2nd May

Announcement by the Kirk Session about additional services.
The Kirk Session has decided to begin using the church building on Kenneth Street for services on the Lord’s Day, beginning on Sunday 2nd May. The Session also decided to begin the Sunday morning Gaelic service on the same date. The Covid-19 restrictions and regulations currently in place will apply until we are advised otherwise. This means attendance is restricted meantime to a maximum of 50 at each service. The session room will also be available for those who wish to utilise it and they will form part of the 50 total.

Unfortunately there will be no creche, Tweenies or Sunday school provision initially. This will be reviewed as restrictions ease. Families are still most welcome to attend the services. 

There will be no minibus transport option. This will also be reviewed as restrictions ease.

As previously announced, the Gaelic service will be a joint service with the Gaelic section of the Stornoway High Free Church. Stornoway High Free will continue to hold their evening English service in the Seminary at 6.30pm.

Details for the Stornoway Free Church services on 2nd May are as follows:

11.00am – Gaelic service in the Seminary – Rev James Maciver
11.00am – English service in the church – Rev Kenneth I Macleod
6.30pm – English service in the church – Rev James Maciver


Those wishing to attend the Gaelic service should contact Elizabeth McGowan in advance, by Friday evening at the latest, so that a list can be kept for Track and Trace purposes. Contact, or 07900586930
Similarly, for those wishing to attend either of the services in the church, the contact is Alasdair Macleod (Ali Moley), at or 07810 691033.

The Session warmly encourages you to attend services in person wherever possible, using the booking system mentioned above. We pray that we may soon see the restriction on numbers lifted so that we can, in the fullest possible way, comply with the Lord’s exhortation in Hebrews 10 v 24-25, “let us consider one another in order to stimulate to love and good works, not neglecting to assemble together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
