Church History

The most northerly church in Britain. The church was needed because its predecessor, which used to stand where the car park is today, was badly damaged by high winds. The foundation stone was laid in 1990 and the church was dedicated in May 1993. It was designed by the Shetland architect Frank A Robertson and built along the lines of a simplified Norwegian wooden staved church. Perhaps the most striking external feature is the separate bell turret, built as a millennium project in 2001 to house the bell, which dates back to 1867.
