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.

Coronavirus

Like many other churches, the Church of Scotland was instructed that all gatherings for worship should cease from Wednesday 17 March 2020 until further notice. From Sunday 4 October we are able to resume a Sunday morning service at 11am subject to the arrangements detailed above, and Sunday worship will continue to be posted on the website for those unable to attend. The Minister remains available by telephone on 01478 611 868 for information, prayers, comfort or any possible help needed. 

Online daily worship is available on the SANCTUARY FIRST website.

The minister should be contacted first where funeral arrangements are required. Current instruction from the Church of Scotland is that NO FUNERAL SERVICES SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN THE CHURCH.

Above all, in this time of crisis, remember :

GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND OUR STRENGTH

AND EVER PRESENT HELP IN TROUBLE

So, BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD (Psalm 46)

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”
