The vision of the United Church of Bute is to be a “7 days-a-week church”, spreading Christ’s message through a highly motivated congregation, together serving and supporting our members and the wider community, through a variety of worship, the development of fellowship and the Christian care of those in need.

The United Church of Bute was formed in 1999 through the union of five Island congregations – Ascog, Craigmore St Brendan’s, Kingarth and Kilchattan Bay, North Bute, and Rothesay High Kirk. The united congregation has rationalized its buildings and now occupies a single church complex located in Rothesay on the site of the former Rothesay High Kirk.

The congregation numbers approximately 500 people and we are part of the Presbytery of Argyll. The parish covers the whole island of Bute – Rothesay, Port Bannatyne, Kilchattan Bay, Straad and rural areas. We form a Parish Grouping with our sister church Rothesay Trinity.
