Welcome to Netherlorn Churches

We are one congregation, worshipping in four buildings.  We would love you to join us โ€“ whether at a Sunday service in a church or village hall or at the top of a hill.  

A new minister!

We are delighted to announce that after preaching as Sole Nominee in Kilbrandon Church Seil, live streamed to Colonsay Parish Church on Sunday 27th August, the congregations voted to accept Trudi Newton as the Minister of the charge Colonsay and Oronsay linked with Netherlorn. 

This outcome marks a major turning-point in the life of our congregation. After all the difficulties we have faced during vacancy and lockdown, and the radical reorganisation of parishes and presbyteries within the Church of Scotland, we can now look forward to having a Minister to lead and work alongside our Worship Leaders

As this will be her first charge as a minister, Trudi will be formally ordained and inducted as Minister of the two parishes at a service to be held in Netherlorn in due course.

Everyone is invited to put their name to the Paper of Concurrence, as the Church calls it, a way for all members of our communities to welcome our new Minister. It will be available in our village shops on Luing, Seil, in the Church in Kilmelford and in the Village Hall at Craignish โ€“ Members and adherents of the church can sign โ€˜The Callโ€™ to Trudi . If you would prefer to write a brief message in an e-mail, please send to Fiona at Netherlornsessionclerk@gmail.com. Everything will be collated by us and presented to Trudi along with messages and signatures

More details will follow in due course, but in the meantime please keep Trudi in your prayers as she prepares to move to Argyll ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
