portnahaven parish church

Portnahaven Parish church is located in the picturesque village of Portnahaven. This Thomas Telford building has stunning views of the busy fishing harbour and Orsay lighthouse. It was built in 1828 and is a listed building due to the unique architectural features. The setting and building has made it a popular wedding venue.

The parish includes the villages of Portnahaven and Port Wemyss as well as the surrounding farming community. The church glebe is rented by a local family. The winter population is around 200 but this doubles in the summer months.   Many of the families have ties to the church going back generations and value its role in community life.

Services are held at 10am every Sunday.

Every effort is made to hold a Gaelic service on an annual basis

The Guild meets in the vestry on the second Tuesday of each month.
