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.

Sunday services update

Sunday morning services commence at 11am and evening services commence at 6pm 

All are also welcome to the weekly Bible Study and Prayer Meeting in the church on Tuesdays at 7pm.

CovidWhile Covid is still present in the community, the majority of our congregation are now fully vaccinated against the virus.

The Kirk Session and Congregational Board have decided that we can now relax our previous strong recommendation that face coverings should be worn in the church.

The wearing of these face coverings will now be a matter of personal choice.

The cleaning and disinfecting regime in the church will continue, but at a reduced frequency.  It will still be sanitised before each Sunday worship.

The Minister is 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.

Please contact the minister should  funeral arrangements be required. 

Above all, remember :



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”
