Knockbain Free Church is a local church which offers a welcome to all.  We meet in our modern building in North Kessock on the beautiful Black Isle, just north of Inverness.

Our aim is to worship God in a biblical manner and to be a loving community of believers, seeking to share the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ with one another and with all who come into contact with us.   Details of our service times and meetings can be found on the Weekly Noticeboard page.

In our worship we sing exclusively from the Psalms, which we believe to be God's inspired hymn-book for the congregational praise of His Church and which speak of the King of Kings - the Lord Jesus Christ. We sing without instrumental accompaniment, which again we believe reflects the pattern of New Testament worship and was also the practice of the Free Church of Scotland from its earliest days. More information on how we worship and what we believe can be found on our What we believe and How we worship page.
We would encourage you to join us in our worship of God and please feel free to come just as you are.

During our Minister's absence any congregational queries should be referred to the Session Clerk, Mr David Topping or any of the other Elders (Contact details under "Leadership" tab opposite).

Rev Alex Stewart, Maryburgh has been appointed Interim Moderator and will cover ministerial issues during Farquhar's absence - his telephone number is 01349 863367 and email address is:

Rev Stewart will be on holiday parts of July and August and anyone requiring the services of a Minister can contact any of the elders or directly avail themselves of the arranged pastoral cover which is as follows:

Rev. John De La Hay, Dingwall (01349 867179) will cover from the 20th July to the 2nd of August. and the Rev. Sandy Sutherland, Fortrose (01381 621404) will cover from the 3rd August to the 9th August.


Irene Howat is no stranger to us; she has written nearly 50 books for Christian Focus Publications, about 30 of them for children.  Irene's "Story a Month Club" will introduce 7-13 year olds to real heroes and heroines, men and women who started life as ordinary children like Club members, but who grew up to be used by God in interesting, courageous and life-changing ways.
