Welcome to the web site of the Church of Scotland 
linked Parishes of Cawdor with Croy & Dalcross

The vision of the Church of Scotland is to be a church which seeks to inspire the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic, worshipping, witnessing, nurturing and serving communities.

Come and join us for Sunday Worship at 10.15 am in Cawdor and at 12.00 noon in Croy.
The service normally lasts about one hour. You will find a warm welcome.

This charge became "vacant" at the end of October 2015 when the popular minister of twelve years, the Rev Jan Mathieson, moved to Williamwood Church in Glasgow. The Rev Peter Nimmo, the minister of Old High St. Stevens in Inverness (pictured left) is the Interim Moderator and the Rev David M. Anderson, an Ordained Local Minister from Fort William, is the Locum.

We are pleased to advise that the Presbytery of Inverness has sustained the election of Rev. Robert E Brookes as our minister and Robert's induction in Cawdor Parish Church will be on 11th November 2016. 

The Rev Robert E. Brookes preaches as sole nominee

On Sunday 21st August the Rev Robert E. Brookes, who at present is the Minister of the Argyll parishes of Kilchrenan and Dalavich linked with Muckairn, preached before the congregations of Cawdor and Croy with Dalcross as their sole nominee in this vacant charge.

Large numbers attended both services. Following worship, the congregations voted by 92 to 0 to accept Robert as their new minister. Subject to Presbytery approval, and various other legal steps, Robert will become the new minister. The date of the Service of Induction has still to be announced.

Evergreens Celebrate the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Cawdor Evergreens enjoyed a day of celebration for the Queen’s 90th birthday. It began with a visit to Nairn Museum where they were given an extremely interesting tour of the Museum by members of the Heritage Group. They then moved on to specially decorated Cawdor OLD Primary School, which included historical photographs, for an incredible lunch. This was followed by a sing-a-long of Vera Lynn and other “wartime” songs. Some of the members adorned special period hats for the occasion.

Guests to the lunch included Ewan Brodie, Lord Lieutenant of Nairnshire, accompanied by his wife Mrs Mariota Brodie, Stevie Webster the Chair of Cawdor Community Council and John and Jenny Rose Millar of Cawdor Heritage Group.

Special thanks to Jenifer and all her many helpers for a great day which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Cawdor Church dedicate their new noticeboard.

At the close of worship on 17th April, the new church noticeboard at Cawdor Church was dedicated.

Thanks were expressed to all those who made the new board, which included David Clark, Sandy Henderson, Sandy MacRae, Denis Smith, Lewis Stirling, Clem Watson and Gavin of Cawdor Estates.

Some of the congregation went down at the close of worship to the new board for the dedication.

In his children’s address that day, Locum Minister David said that with trees, in order for new leaves to be allowed to grow, it was necessary for the old ones to die and fall off in Autumn. How appropriate it was that we found the old noticeboard lying on the ground beside the new one!
