The population of Colonsay is very small - about 110 people. There are two churches on the island - a Baptist church and a Church of Scotland. What is unique is that these 2 churches share services... one week at the Baptist church and the next at the Church of Scotland. You can get the schedule at http://www.colonsay.org.uk/Church%20services.html or check the signs in front of the churchs.

The Baptist church is in Kilchattan (about 4 miles from the ferry terminal) and the Church of Scotland is in Scalasaig (near the ferry terminal).

Service is at 11:30am. Very, very casual... we had a Lab attending service with us!
