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

Old Baptist Manse Announcement

CCDC are pleased to be able to provide short term accommodation to a local family who need to bridge the gap between two tenancies. One of CCDC's main aims is to provide or assist in the provision of housing and we are delighted that bringing this asset into community ownership has allowed us to fulfill this aim. 

In allocating residential use of the Old Manse, Colonsay Community Development Company adopts the policy of giving priority to those in need as a result of the housing shortage on the island; individuals who have made a commitment to making Colonsay their home.  Consideration is given to the resources available to that family or individual, the urgency of their need, and assesses all details on a case by case basis.  

CCDC intends to use this community asset later in the year in support of TSL Contractors Ltd throughout the Scalasaig affordable housing development, and to use the time concurrently to consult the community again with longer-term plans in mind. It is intended that work at the Old Manse itself will be undertaken by TSL during their time there, and this will enhance future possibilities for its use.
