We are a Church of Scotland congregation of around 80 people who currently meet at 10.00am each Sunday at The Round Church in Bowmore, Islay. Our Sunday School meets in The Baptist Church on Jamieson Sreet at 11.00am each Sunday during school term time and a new kids after-school Fun Club has now started at Bowmore Primary School, every Thursday during term time, starting at 3.15pm.
The Round Church building is also open daily between 9am and 6pm for personal prayer and meditation. For other regular events such as the Islay Christian Fellowship mid-week meeting and the Friday prayer meeting please take a look at the “Regular Events” tab below. For “Special Events” please take a look at the sidebar on the right. Visitors to Islay are most welcome to join us at any of these services or events!
The minister and elders are committed to a process of change that we hope will gradually see us engaging more effectively with our community. We believe that Prayer and the application God’s Word are fundamental to the life and growth of the Church.
Our Mission Statement: “As gifted by the Father, and following the leading of His Spirit, we seek the building up of Christ’s church in love, reaching out with the Good News of Jesus Christ to the community of Bowmore and beyond, all for God’s glory”.
The Round Church is in the Parish of Kilarrow which is linked with St John’s Church, Port Ellen in the Parish of Kildalton and Oa and Jura Parish Church on the island of Jura.
