Built in 1790
A site of Christian worship spanning at least 1300 years, upon which this lovely old Church was built 220 years ago.
Dalarossie Church is also important to the community. A place were weddings and funerals have taken place down through the centuries. Somewhere the local population can come to pray and find peace.
Sunday Worship takes place at 10.30am. Services are held in Dalarossie Church on the first and third Sundays of each month from March – November inclusive, and in the Strathdearn Hall on all other Sundays, and special occasions such as Christmas Services etc. For the World Day of Prayer, and on Good Friday, and sometimes around New Year, we have Joint Services with Daviot & Dunlichity, with the venue alternating between the two parishes. Pulpit supply is provided by various Ministers and Readers, including Vivian Roden from Moy, Dalarossie & Tomatin, and Joyce Mitchell from Daviot & Dunlichity.
We sometimes use The Songs of Fellowship Resources (CDs and Hymn sheets) for Small Group Worship. Usually for Alpha Groups.
We also have Messy Church once a month at the Strathdearn Hall, usually on the last Sunday of the month. The worship at Messy Church is less traditional. Songs vary from Hymns from CH4 to contemporary hymns, to action songs. Prayers are sometimes interactive and the Bible Story or illustration during the Celebration reflects the theme of the crafts enjoyed during the first part of the afternoon.
The Messy Church Team has also been going into Strathdearn Primary School at Christmas and Easter-time to share the real meaning of Christmas and Easter with the children in what is usually a packed and fun-filled morning of activities including Quizzes, Puppet Sketches, Crafts, Spontaneous Drama, Action Songs and Interactive Stories!
We all have a great time!
All are warmly welcome at any, or all, of our Services or Activities.
Pray for us.
It may be eventually that Dalarossie Church will have to become a Trust, to preserve it as a building; but in the meantime we have permission to continue to use it as a live Church, subject to further review in 2023. We are thankful for this, and continue to seek new ways in which to use our beloved old church to try to keep it in use for as long as possible, via The Dalarossie Project. We are also thankful for the independent local funds which have been provided to pay for the maintenance of the church for the next five years. We would be grateful for your prayers for the future of Dalarossie Church.
