The Stornoway High Church is a place of worship of the Church of Scotland in Stornoway. The church celebrated its centenary in 2009. There is an English and Gaelic congregation in the church, the English congregation worships in the old church and the Gaelic congregation worships in the 'New Hall'.

Leaving the Church of Scotland

At a meeting on Tuesday 18 June 2013, 250 members of the congregation unanimously voted to leave the Church of Scotland over the way it handled the issue of gay clergy. Those who left joined later to Free Church of Scotland and established congregation named High Free Church.
