After six months of being unable to conduct our services from within the church building, we are delighted to report that we were able to recommence these on September 20, 2020.

At the same time we are continuing to provide our online version of the service (see opposite), broadcasting from 11am every Sunday morning on You Tube (Nairn Free Church).

We warmly welcome visitors to both versions of our service, but please note that if you wish to come to the service in the church building for the first time since the lockdown, you must book a place in advance due to seat number limitations.  Thereafter you will be added to the rota and can attend on a turn-about basis.

Please wear a face-covering, bring your own water if required, and be prepared to provide a contact number for NHS tracking purposes.

Our online services are available each Sunday from 11am. If you log on to this website before that time you won't be able to watch the video for that date till 11am - then afterwards it continues to be able to be heard or seen, on SoundCloud or on YouTube ('Nairn Free Church').

This Sunday, October 18th, our services online and in the church building, will be conducted by our own minister, the Rev Murdo MacLeod. We are continuing our weekly series with a seventh sermon on the book of Jonah - the runaway prophet who gets swallowed by a big fish, etc... but is that really what the book is all about?!  This week, in 'The Street Preacher' we will see how God sends Jonah to Nineveh to preach a message that will be tough for them to hear, and tough too for Jonah to preach! (Jonah 3 2-4).

Our previous series on John's three letters (fifteen sermons in total) are still available on YouTube, (search Nairn Free Church), as well as elsewhere on this website.

We believe that the Bible is God's written word, and that through it he speaks to us, even today.  Whether you have a deep, long-held faith, or whether you would claim to have a very small faith, or whether you are still searching for truth and meaning in life, God speaks and invites us to know him through his Son, Jesus Christ.  Millions around the world have discovered the Christian message to be true and have found forgiveness for their sins in Jesus, and thousands more make that great discovery every single day.  

Do bear in mind that other services are available, both locally and further afield. Details of some of these services in the Inverness, Lochaber & Ross Presbytery can be found below. Services from other presbyteries can be found at
