WWI Commemorations

The Kirk will be open from Saturday 23 September to Monday 25 September from 15:00 - 17:00 and from 19:00 - 21:00 each day, to commemorate the lives of Robert Foubister, David Cormack and James Scott who all died during the Battle of Passchendale. There will be a display, and folk on hand to answer questions.

Blue Door Success!

Great news from our week at the Blue Door! We made £3641.63 gross at the shop itself, plus another £41 from pre sales. There's more to be sold separately later so we should clear £3,700. We can't thank everyone enough for all their hard work and generosity. The time and trouble everyone went to is so much appreciated. Well done to one and all!

Summer Opening at the Kirk

The Kirk will be open on Sunday afternoons from 3pm - 5pm from the beginning of June to the end of September inclusive, and we have a rota to fill for this. If you would like to volunteer please contact Ernie Skea on 741203, or Isobel Gardner on 741307. If you wish to visit at any other time, please contact Isobel,  or Laurence Irvine (741304) who will be happy to come down and open up when convenient.


Don't forget our AGM takes place on Monday 15 May, starting at 7:30pm in the Deerness Community Centre.

After the main business we will welcome David Delday to tell us of his life and times at BBC Radio Orkney.

There will be light refreshments after so a good chance to have a catch up and yarn.

All are very welcome!
