Portree Parish Church

A welcoming congregation

Based in Somerled Square in the centre of Portree, Portree Parish Church has been welcoming visitors since 1854. Built initially as a Free Church, the building became a United Free Church in 1900 before becoming part of the Church of Scotland in 1929.

We aim to be a welcoming, inclusive community and to respond to local needs in a variety of ways. Our hall is also functional space for hire in the centre of the village and used by many groups including the local food bank.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Soup and Mince Pie Lunch

Sunday 15 December : This will be the last Sunday this year for the Sunday School and consequently morning worship will take the form of a Family Carol Service.

Members of the Crèche and Sunday School will be involved in the service

After the service the Crèche and Sunday School will be providing a Soup and Mince Pie Lunch in the Church Hall.

It is hoped that members of the congregation will support our younger members in these activities.

A letter has already been sent to a special guest inviting him to make an appearance and he has written back saying he hopes to attend.

Mission Statement

We believe that our worship should be God-glorifying. relevant and Christ-centred, leading people of all ages to be brought to a saving faith in Jesus Christ;  that unity and prayer are essential to the life and witness of our Church;  and that all should receive a warm and caring welcome to our Church;  and help and comfort given to those in need.


“Let love and faithfulness never leave you ;
bind them round your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favour and a good name
in the sight of God and man”
