Skye? Heavens Above!

This Parish Church - at Bracadale, Skye - will soon be very different. It will have the first female minister to be appointed in the Hebrides by the Church of Scotland. The responsibilities of the Revd Janet Easton-Berry (see the BBC website item) will also include the congregation at Duirinish. However, it is highly unlikely that she will be welcomed to take part in services at the Duirinish Free Church - pictured below - or its Free Church (Continuing) which meets in the nearby building of the Free Presbyterian Church, as female ministers are not part of their theological concepts. If you are puzzled, it is understandable.
