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.
Kirkwall East meet every week at 11:15 am. There will also be a joint community carol singing at 11 pm at the Cathedral on Crhsitmas Eve, followed by a short watchnight service at 11.30 pm, as well an all age Christingle service on Christmas Day at 11.15 am. All welcome!
Offering is collected on plates resting on small tables in the upper vestibule.
Words for hyms and responses are projected onto the wall but the hymnbooks are available too.
We stream our services live on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Yg_uFSQsU7UWDC2SSnyCA. If, for whatever reason, you cannot join us in person, please feel free to join in our services remotely online, by email or by telephone 01856 404667.
There are severla parking lots around the church - on the street opposite the church and King Street car park (enter from King Street or Thoms Street).
We have a ramp accessible for wheelchairs and prams on the right hand side of the church's main entrance. There are also handrails there as well as at the front door steps. Easy access toilet is located on the left (behind the lift) immediately as you enter the building. Baby changing facilities are at the back of the building, in the corridor between the Hub and the Garden Room. There is a lift taking you to the Upper Room (our worship space) should you need it.
