St. Bride's Chapel-of-Ease in South Uist

From the Hebridean Parishes of Ardkenneth and Bornish:


Welcome to our parishes. Situated in the beautiful and windswept island of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland - we are two parishes and two chapels perched on the edge of the Atlantic. On a still day you can sit in our churches, made holy through generations of prayer and listen to the faint singing sound of 3000-mile-old Atlantic breakers. Please stay a while and explore - and one day please come and visit us!

St. Bride's, Gerinish

St Bride's, Gerinish, was opened in 1966. It is a simple 'chapel-of-ease' for Ardkenneth Parish. The Church bears the name of one of the patron saints of the Western Isles - St Bride. Inside the Church we have a large St Bride's Cross and artwork by our parish artist, Michael Gilfedder, depicting the Sacred Heart and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
