Who We Are
Cromarty Parish Church has been a part of life on the Black Isle and in Cromarty since the 13th Century when the parish churches of Culicudden, Kirkmichael, and Cromarty East were established. So we’ve been around a long time and weathered the changes brought about by the Scottish Reformation, the Highland Clearances, the Disruption, two World Wars, and other events that are part of Scottish, and particularly, Highland, history. As is often the case, and as time passed, people moved, and as farm and village life changed, these congregations unified; eventually becoming the Cromarty Parish Church. Today we’re a mix of individuals and families whose lives and careers take them around the Black Isle, Inverness, and elsewhere in the Highlands.
Sadly, since the West Church was re-opened after a long Covid lock-down, very few members of the congregation have returned for regular Sunday Worship. The Kirk Session are presently supporting a Mission-led Outreach programme of "Cafe' Church" less formal services within the Cromarty community, led by Reverend Carol Rattenbury with approval of the Presbytery of Ross.
