Scott Daily was our locum minister from May 2018 until May 2020. He, his wife & family have now returned to the USA and once again we are looking for a minister.

Following instructions received from the Orkney Presbytery there will be no services or meetings at Moncur Memorial Church, Stronsay until further notice.
14 July 2020
You may have heard in the news that Churches have permission to hold "communal prayer, congregational services and contemplation with physical distancing and limited numbers" from 15th July. However, the Kirk Session members have taken the hard decision to not open our church building for worship until Phase 4. We have decided that because we believe that restrictions currently in place (no singing allowed, social distacing rules requiring everyone to be 2 m apart, no cuppa or Sunday Club etc.) would not be conducive to furthering fellowship among us and the experience, as it stands just now, would be very different and possibly quite unsatisfactory. Also, bear in mind that many of our congregation are elderly and/or vulnerable and we want to protect them as best we can. We hope you can still join us in worship online every Sunday and are looking forward to seeing you all when it's safe to do so. Every blessing to you and yours!
