COLONSAY CHURCHES - Welcome and List of Services


Don't forget to check for NEWS

You are very welcome to this website, which reflects Christianity as it exists in Colonsay today and which is not restricted to any one denomination. The site includes information and news about the living faith in Colonsay, but we hope that it will also grow to include plenty of information about the history and development of Christianity locally. In particular, we hope that this site will help to forge and maintain a bond between the island and its diaspora, the descendants of those very many people who left its shore to found a new and successful life elsewhere.

Colonsay is remarkably ecumenical and local congregations of the Baptist Church and the Church of Scotland habitually participate in joint worship, which is held each Sunday at 11.30 in the parish church at Scalasaig. Until autumn 2016 we alternated between the two church buildings, but the Baptist Church building is now reserved for special occasions, and is still available for weddings and funerals. Please note that everyone is welcome, and please do not hesitate to bring your children - the congregation will normally include persons from a variety of traditions, including the Anglican, Episcopalian, Methodist and Roman Catholic faiths. The schedule is given below - everything else can be reached from the links above. Services are also flagged-up upon the notice-board at the shop. For any further details, please phone 01951 200320

N.B. We are always glad to hear from ministers who might be interested in joining our circulation list for vacant dates. Please contact either church or email .
