Church Services are held every Sunday in the Church of Scotland Parish Church at Scalasaig, at 11.30 a.m. These are joint services with the Baptist Congregation, and the arrangement is to permit united worship.  Ours is a notably ecumenical community, and persons of all denominations are very welcome to attend. The regular congregation also includes persons of the Methodist, Episcopalian, Evangelical and Roman Catholic traditions. The parish is served by visiting ministers whose faithful support is highly valued by all members of the combined congregation. The Parish Church is just opposite the hotel, there is reasonable disabled access.

Everyone is welcome at all services, regardless of denomination - and please do not hesitate to bring your children. The outline schedule is given via www.colonsaychurches.org, and further details will be found upon the notice-board at the shop. For any further details, please phone 01951 200320.

Church History

The religious history of Colonsay is very interesting.  We hope to expand upon it over time, and will post material here from time to time - the first submissions are attached below but there is more information at www.colonsaychurches.org

Colonsay Moorings Development

 
A Marine License Application for the 10 moorings due to go into Queen’s Bay was submitted to the Crown Estate in March. CCDC also submitted an application to Marine Scotland in late April. Both these applications have had a considerable amount of input from MOWI who are one of our key match-funders for this development. We hope to hear if our applications are successful in the next six to eight weeks. MOWI would like to see the moorings installed as soon as possible, but as you would expect, COVID-19 has impacted many of the administrative and physical processes required to see the 2 tonne anchor blocks put in place. Similarly, the Path Development has been delayed due to an inability to source materials. Our funder, Paths for All, are understanding of the situation and are willing to work with us on this. Colonsay Estate has agreed in principle to the path up to the church and we are working through the details with them.  
In the meantime, CCDC have been corresponding with other marine establishments, and are working on a management plan which incorporates an online booking system for the moorings.  
If anyone has any thoughts or questions about the moorings. Please contact Roz Jewell: rjewellccdc.ldo@gmail.com
