Church Leadership

Minister/ Pastor: Rev Roddie M. Rankin

Roddie has spent most of his life in the Highlands of Scotland, and has served the congregation for 26 years.  He says, “I was the youngest minister in the Free Church when I came to Plockton and Kyle.  Now this community is very much home, and my wife Margaret, and children Kenny, Ally and Brighde are deeply rooted here.  The church and community have changed out of all recognition in the more than two decades I’ve lived here, but people’s needs remain much the same.  I still retain a passion for sharing the good news of Jesus with the people of Lochalsh, and am truly grateful for all the friendships which I have forged here in the work of the gospel, not least those with the other elders.”

Our Support for the Wider Church:

In addition to working with local churches our congregation also has many missionary contacts, with both with Free Church workers, and with other organisations such as the London City Mission, the Faith Mission, WEC International and Latin Link.

Our Plans for the Future:

The Kyle church building is a little over a hundred years old, with a church hall having been added in 1994.  We are underway with plans to redevelop the interior of the church as we look to the fellowship and mission possibilities for the future!
