What is happening in Carloway Free Church in 2019?

16th March 2019


We meet at 12noon & 6pm every Sunday.  Our services last about an hour & 15 minutes. During a service we sing, we pray, we read a chapter from the Bible and we listen to a talk about what a passage from the Bible can teach us today. Because we don’t have a minister at the moment the services are led by different visiting preachers.

We have a Gaelic service at 6pm on the second Sunday of the month. There is also a service in Tolsta Chaolais once a month.  You will find a calendar on the church website which details all the upcoming services and events:

Activities for Young People

During the 12noon service we have a children’s talk.  After the children’s talk pre-school children go to crèche and primary school aged children go to Sunday School.

We are hoping to run a Holiday Club again this year.  More details about this will be available later.

The Youth Fellowship meets each Sunday at 8pm either in Callanish or in Carloway. All secondary aged young people are welcome.

Top Tots, a parent and toddler group, meets in the church every Wednesday during term time at 2pm.


The Women for Mission group meets as announced, usually on a Tuesday evening once a month.

Road to Recovery meets every second Tuesday at 7.30pm in Carloway Day Centre. This support group seeks to help those who are struggling with addiction.


New Activities in 2019

For 7 weeks in January & February we have a Bible Study after the evening service.  This takes the form of an interactive discussion over a cup of tea or coffee.

This year we are working through the New City Catechism as a congregation.  This is a question & answer book about the teachings of Christianity. You can read more about this here:

You can keep in touch with the church via the website, facebook, twitter or Instagram.  The church also sends out a weekly newsletter via e-mail. Everyone is welcome to attend any of the services or events in the church even if you haven’t been to church before.
