Coronovirus Covid-19 Update

With effect from Wednesday 17 March 2020 worship services at Shapinsay Church have been moved to a virtual space until further notice – find us on our Facebook page: Kirkwall East linked with Shapinsay or YouTube: Every week there is an e-service and e-Messy Church available there. You can also access the se-service by dialling 01856 404667 from your phone and listening to the audio recording of the service (you will be charged as you would normally be for a local phone call – and that of course depends on your contract) or by getting an e-mail with the script of the e-service. This is particularly important to those with hearing impairment so if you need such an e-mail, please let Julia know on 874789 or

Alternatively you can tune in to BBC Radio Orkney on Sunday afternoon at 3 pm.

Everybody is welcome to join with us in worship, whoever you are and whatever you’re going through.
