Church Buildings

The larger, Pulteneytown Parish Church, sits in Argyle Square: part of the new town of Pulteneytown whose layout was designed by Thomas Telford. Link to Map/image

The building was opened in 1842 and its early days are outlined in the history section. Recently it has been renovated to meet the needs of a modern day congregation, making it accessible to people of all abilities.

The addition of the courtyard at the front allows worshippers to mingle before and after the services, yet be protected from the worst of the Caithness weather.

The removal of the pews and their replacement with comfortable chairs makes the sanctuary both comfortable and adaptable: formal services can be held with the whole congregation seated, or the holiday club can be run without the constraints of space with all the chairs cleared away.

Audio-visual equipment is installed to ensure that speakers are easily heard by all and to allow a wide variety of video and audio clips to be used in worship.

The smaller Thrumster Parish Church has retained the traditional style one comes to expect of a rural Highland Church. Link to map/image
