About Us

The Parish was part of a Church of Scotland linked charge with the parish of Alves and Burghead. Under the new presbytery Mission Plan we now become part of a Team Ministry in a new parish of West Moray. All the previously separate entries in the Scottish Register of Charitable Organisations have now been combined under one number for the parish of West Moray. A link to the West Moray page on OSCR is here. Kinloss Church forms the base for the rural part of the ministry whilst the town part of the ministry is based in the churches in Forres. We were part of the Moray Presbytery but under the reorganisation became part of Inverness Presbytery. Further reorganisation has combined the Highlands and Islands Presbyteries into one called Cleir Eilean I or CEI for short. The churches at Burghead, Alves and Findhorn have all held their final services.
