Welcome

Welcome to our website!

We are a congregation of the Church of Scotland with a passion for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our aim is that everyone in our town, parish and beyond will hear about the saving Grace of Jesus and our prayer is that many men, women, boys and girls will respond to His invitation to follow Him. We are a lively church with a lot going on for all-ages during the week, not just Sundays.

So take some time to look through this site to find out more about what’s happening here. It will give you a flavour of who and what we are as a congregation. More immediate information can be found on our Facebook Page. We hope that as you browse our site and Facebook page, you will want to come and join us in worship and our other activities, but more importantly, that you may be encourage to find out more about Jesus.

Our church building has stood on its present site since 1805, overlooking the town and harbour. Adjacent to it stand the town cross and a large historic anchor, recovered from the bay, both of which together provide a symbolic reminder of the message of the church - that Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, is our steadfast anchor in life; and as our church tower was once used to guide boats into the harbour, it is our hope and prayer that Christ’s light will guide you through life and, in time, into His 'heavenly harbour'.
