Kirkwall Baptist Church


Sunday Morning Service 11:15 am

After opening intimations, musicians and singers lead the worship. The words of the songs, mostly from 'Songs of Fellowship', are projected onto a large screen. In school term time, part way through the service the youngsters go out to the Crèche, Nursery, Sunday School or Bible Class while others remain to hear the speaker who may be a member of the Preaching Team, one or more folk from a Small Group, or a visiting guest. Many use PowerPoint presentations to support their talks. A range of different versions of the Bible may be used. The morning service normally finishes around 12.45 pm.

Sunday Evening Service 6:15 pm

Evening Services tend to be quieter and more reflective than Morning Services and there are no special provisions for children. The format of services may vary. Evening Services normally finish around 7:45 pm and are followed by tea and biscuits, with time for chatting with friends and meeting new people.


The normal timing for Communion is for it to take place during Morning Service on the first Sunday of the month and during Evening Service on other Sundays in the month. This is sometimes changed to accommodate special events and during the summer school holidays when family services apply, Communion is always during Evening Service.
