New Life for Old Church

Grimsay is the largest of the islands that act as stepping stones for the five-mile long North Ford Causeway linking North Uist and Benbecula. The Free Church building served members of its congregation until they moved to a converted-hotel in nearby Carinish.

Now the Grimsay Community Association is supervising the refurbishment and return of the building to use for meetings, events and socialising. An Open Day will be held from 11.00 - 16.00 on Saturday 25 June. See the Stornoway Gazette for more details.

Scottish Islands Explorer - looks forward to supporting the venture
Digital Edition: open all hours, literally

I am glad to hear that the congregation has found a new home and the church has a new use.
