The current church of Kirkapol (Norse for 'Church Town') is a continuing witness to the Christian faith that stretches back to Columban times. Built in 1842 by architect-contractor Peter MacNab as a simple square box with galleries on three sides focused on a central pulpit. Some of the granite came from the same quarry as that for the Skerryvore lighthouse. Inside, the focus is the box pulpit of 1893 at the centre of the north wall.
Sunday: 11.30pm and 6.00pm, alternating with Heylipol Church
