Thurso West Church of Scotland

Church Services

Sunday Worship begins at 11.15 am and the service lasts about an hour. In praise we use the Fourth Edition of the Church Hymnary, with Scripture lessons from the New International Version, copies of which are available in the Church. We have traditional but innovative worship and we are especially proud of the contribution made by our choir.

The Sunday School children join us at the beginning of the service. We believe that worship is the activity of the whole people of God, and that the Church is where people should feel happy as well as secure, at ease as well as safe.

The Sacrament of Baptism is administered as requested. Parents wishing Baptism for their children, or adults wishing to be baptised should contact the Session Clerk.

The Sacrament of Communion is celebrated on the second Sunday of March and the fourth Sunday of June and November, and is offered after the service on Easter Day and either the last Sunday of the old, or the first Sunday of the new year.

The Holy Table is open to all who love the Lord in sincerity and truth. Members of any branch of the Church are welcome to share in our Communion. Communion cards are not “tickets for admission” but a historical tradition in the Kirk which now has more to do with statistics than anything else.

Anyone who seeks further information on becoming a communicant member of the Kirk should approach the Session Clerk.

If you are aware of someone requiring a visit either through illness or bereavement, please pass the information on to either the Session Clerk or the elders on duty on a Sunday morning.
