Typical white-harled hall-church of the reformed tradition, this is the second-oldest church in Shetland still in use. The church opened its doors for worship in 1790 although there has been a church in Tingwall since the 12th century. Originally dedicated to St Magnus; part of the old church may still be seen in the nearby grass-covered burial vault. Inside, the church still has its original late 18th century interior with gallery and tall pulpit.
1st & 3rd Sunday of each month @ 9.15am April-September, 12noon October-March. 5th Sunday of the month is a charge-wide United service (see local press).
