On Sunday 12 February 2017 the choir made a presentation to DeLille Diamont to mark her retirement as organist and choir mistress. Delille has given long and faithful service to the church and we all wish her well for the future. 

On Tuesday 30th August Stromness Parish Church bade farewell to Bill & Barbara Whitson as they left Stromness Kirk to go back to their home in Bathgate. At their last service, on Sunday 28th, Bill was presented with two prints and a bottle of whisky by David Sillar our Session clerk and Barbara also received a gift.

We wish them health and happiness back at home and thank them again for the way in which they supported Stromness Kirk and helped to keep our church together during the vacancy.
