Shapinsay Kirk

Welcome to the Shapinsay Church of Scotland website!


Welcome to the Shapinsay Kirk Website. Here you will find out information about the Kirk, its history, the work we do within the community and how to get involved.


Our services begin at 11 am until the 26th June. Between the 3rd July and the 14th August they begin at 12 noon.

Offering is collected at the sanctuary door as we come in. 

The wearing of face masks in church is no longer mandatory but you are welcome to wear one if you so wish.

You will be required to sanitise your hands as you enter and exit church. Hand sanitisers are available.

Kirkwall East stream their services live which you can access in any one of three ways:

* Through the YouTube channel: or search for Kirkwall East Church or Shapinsay Church—services become available live at 11.15 am on Sunday morning and on catch up afterwards

* 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). Those services will be available on Sunday afternoons.

* By getting a script of the service by e-mail (do contact Julia if you would like that).
