Dear Rodger and Marlene, lovely to hear from you. We too often think of you both (and Emily too) and the time you spent here with us in Stronsay. Love to you both from all your friends here at the Moncur Memorial. Elsie

excellent website!
I very much appreciate the layout of, and information captured in your website. I have served in rural congregations here in Canada for 10 years and yours is one of the best small rural congregation websites I've encountered. Thanks for the insight into your faith community and your island. Peace.

Your desire for a minister
Dear friends

I came across your site - and your desire to find a minister for your great little Church there in Orkney - somewhat by accident. I am a minister in a reformed Baptist Church here in Northamptonshire England.

The Church I now lead waited for some seven years until it found men capable of leading. I really understand the despair you must all be feeling. You have a beautiful location, with great resources and a will to support a minister should God grant one to you (I am sure He will). Be encouraged and keep working and praying.

If I were a CoS minister I wouldn't think twice about applying!!!

With richest blessings and prayers for you all,

Paul M

Glad to see you are able to move on. Your website is fantastic showing Orcadian friendship.
I didn't visit Stronsay when I was on Orkney but having seen the photos and read about the Kirk a Perdue visit is on the to do list.
God bless.

empty pulpit n manse
hello there elsie ,
is there a deeper reason why the position of minister is still vacant ? could the manse not be utilised in some way why empty say let to B& b providor /holiday let to generate funds + the longterm effect of it being unlived & unheated must be having an adverse effect on its fabric. is this a luxury that the kirk can afford ? finally the links page of the site is very nice for stronsay websites but what about the part of the Parish that is in Eday and on a wider field other Cof s websites bookshops across the uk .surely the more links the more visitors + mibbe even a minister ?Goodluck ,hope you dont mind me butting in. (again !)
