United Church to hold Port service

The first Church of Scotland service in Port Bannatyne since 2006 will be held at the village hall this Tuesday, June 14, at 11.15am.

The United Church of Bute is organising the short half-hour service on a trial basis, and will decide at a later date whether to hold future services in the Port at the same date and time, or to move to another point in the week which may be more suitable to those living in the area.

Teas and coffees will be served in the hall after Tuesday morning’s service.

A regular midweek service has been held at Trinity Church in Rothesay each Thursday morning since the end of January.

The United Church’s last service in Port Bannatyne was held in March 2006 at St Ninian’s Church, after the congregation voted in favour of a proposal to hold all its services at the former High Kirk in Rothesay.

The old St Ninian’s Church building is now in private ownership.
