A warm welcome to the East Church!
We are a Church of Scotland eco-congregation. We are linked with Shapinsay Church of Scotland and partnered with Bindula Parish – Bindula, Nahache and Ntundama congregations – in the Presbytery of Thyolo in Malawi. Our priorities are worship and outreach.
Malawi Music Fund are making and selling facemasks using African fabric from Malawi as a fundraiser for the project. Details are on MMF's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Malawi-Music-Fund-968119913277822/. The masks are £8 each; 3 for £22, including p&p or delivery. Anyone who doesn't do facebook could contact Glenys Hughes 872952 for details. The photo gives an idea of some of the fabrics. Thank you!
Coronovirus Covid-19 Update
With effect from Wednesday 17 March 2020 worship services at Kirkwall East Church have been moved to a virtual space until further notice - find us on our Facebook page: Kirkwall East linked with Shapinsay or YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Yg_uFSQsU7UWDC2SSnyCA. Every week there is an e-service and e-Messy Church available there. You can also access the se-service by dialling 01856 404667 from your phone and listening to the audio recording of the service (you will be charged as you would normally be for a local phone call - and that of course depends on your contract) or by getting an e-mail with the script of the e-service. This is particularly important to those with hearing impairment so if you need such an e-mail, please let Julia know on 874789 or email@example.com.
Alternatively you can tune in to BBC Radio Orkney on Sunday afternoon.
Everybody is welcome to join with us in worship, whoever you are and whatever you're going through.
King Street Halls are closed and bookings have all been cancelled.
