Rogart Parish Church

stcallanschurch

Up until recently there were two churches but the congregation has taken the decision to keep St. Callan’s church and Pitfure church is being sold.

St. Callan’s Church is 1½ miles north of Pittentrail, which is at the centre of the parish of Rogart. The present church dates from the eighteenth century, although it is believed that the site has been used as a place of Christian worship since the seventh century. We are pleased to welcome many overseas visitors who come to see the beauty of our church and are sometimes tracing their family tree.

With effect from 1st April 2018 services will be at 12 noon  each Sunday (alternating annually with the Lairg time of 10.30am).  There are 45? Members and Adherents on the Church Roll.

The congregation enjoys a warm relationship with Free Church, which includes a fortnightly Bible study, and until recently a joint service once a month, in alternate churches. We still have some joint services, in the village hall for Easter and Christmas, and at the old Mart for the Gala.  A prayer breakfast is held in the Pittentrail Inn each month which is attended by many from both within and without the parish. There is also a small A.P.C Church in the parish.

The annual gift day, which is held in May in the village hall, is a very popular event with the whole community and is always very well supported.

Our Locum Minister as in Lairg, is a regular visitor to the primary school.  The primary school has in the past held Christmas and end of year services at St. Callan’s church.

Rogart’s Charity No. Is SC0100035.  The parish number is 402262.
