Welcome to the website of Bonar Bridge and Lairg Free Church, a congregation of the Free Church of Scotland.  This website gives details of our service times, how to locate us and how to contact us.

We are an evangelical church committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to the public worship of God in the beautiful Highland county of Sutherland.  If you live in the area or plan to visit for work or holiday, we would like to invite you to join us for worship and fellowship at our meetings in Bonar Bridge, Lairg and Rosehall.  

We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the Word of God and we also hold to the Westminster Confession of Faith as an expression of what we believe. 

Services have now resumed!   At the moment, on Sundays we are holding services at Lairg church at 10.30 a.m., and at the Gair Hall in Bonar Bridge at 12.00 noon.

Sunday sermons can be found at our YouTube page.

At present, we are not holding Sunday evening services, but there is an after church fellowship meeting each Sunday evening on Zoom at 7.30 p.m.

On Wednesdays, we meet for Bible study and prayer at 7.30 p.m. 

The meeting on the 30th of September will be at the Gair Hall in Bonar Bridge.  

The meeting on the 7th of October will be held on Zoom.

For information on how to join Zoom meetings, please contact us at Jtmklb@aol.com.

For the present time, we are following these procedures for Sunday services:

1. It is necessary to maintain two metre distancing between households on entering and leaving the building as well as when inside.

2. People will be expected to wash their hands with soap and water, or clean them with hand sanitiser, as they enter and leave the building. Hand sanitiser will be available at the entrance for your use

3. Face coverings must be worn in church buildings.   Note that some people are not required to wear face coverings, including  babies, toddlers, and children under 5 years of age.   People may also have a reasonable excuse not to wear a face covering if, for example, they have a health condition or are disabled, including hidden disabilities (for example autism, dementia, or a learning disability) or a face covering would cause difficulty, pain, or severe distress or anxiety to the wearer.

4. We have to limit the number of people attending to allow people to be far enough apart during the service. We can accommodate 40 households in the Lairg church building and 16 households in the Gair Hall. Hopefully, we will be able to fit everyone in who wants to come. But if you want to be guarantee yourself a place, then contact me in advance.

5. We have to take a note of all people attending services and their contact details.

6. Where possible, give offerings by electronic means, but an offering plate will be available at the door as before.

7. Initially, there will be no singing, but recordings of psalms may be played.

8. Bibles and Psalm books will not be provided, but you can bring your own. (A Sing Psalms app for mobile devices is available)

9. If you feel unwell with COVID symptoms during a service, you should let one of the door stewards know and then go home.

10. To reduce the need for cleaning, buildings will be left unused for at least 72 hours after services

11. There will be no social gatherings for tea, coffee, or lunch

12. There will be no communion services until further notice
