Crown Church has never sought to be a solo operator. Rather we believe that our basic mission of worship and witness is furthered by collaborative working with other churches and with all people of goodwill.
Historically we have had our closest contacts with St John’s Episcopal Church, Old High St Stephen’s Church and St Ninian’s R.C. Church. However there has also been strong collaboration with wider networks, both for prayer and for action, most notable provision for the homeless, those needing Food Bank support and those caught up in poverty.
We are still linked, through the Guild, to the parish of St Columba’s, Stornoway, and through a formal agreement now dating back to 2008 with North Street United Church in Kingston, Jamaica. Exchange visits have been held with great success.
Members of the church have also been extensively involved with the work of Cale House, a housing project run by the Church of Scotland under Crossreach. There has been a good flow of people in both directions between the church and these supported living quarters. We have been a little involved also with L’Arche Inverness, which offers supported accommodation for adults with learning difficulties. We regularly lead worship and support those who are in residential or nursing care for the elderly – in the Isobel Fraser Residential Home, in Kingsmills Nursing Home and in Abbeyfield Inverness.
