The first meeting of New Wine Church Tain took place on Sunday 20th January, 2008.
Marie Macleod, who served as a part of the leader team of New Wine Church Stornoway for seven years heard God calling her back to Tain where she had previously lived for many years.   She believes that she is to pioneer a new church in the town that will not be in competition with existing churches but will aim to complement them.

The vision of New Wine Church Tain is consistent with the vision of New Wine Church Stornoway and the work of pioneering this new church is being supported by New Wine Stornoway.
Tain has a very interesting history as can be seen from the following account from the town’s official website:
“The Royal Burgh of Tain has a long and fascinating history. It was granted its first royal charter in 1066, making Tain Scotland’s oldest Royal Burgh, an event commemorated in 1966 with the opening of the Rose Garden by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. The 1066 charter, granted by King Malcolm III, confirmed Tain both as a sanctuary, where people could claim the protection of the church, and an “immunity”, whose resident merchants and traders were exempt from certain types of taxes. These important ideas carried through the centuries and led to the development of the town as it is today. “
We believe that Tain is a strategic gateway to this part of the Highlands of Scotland and that it’s heritage “as a sanctuary where people could receive the protection of the church” is still very relevant today.
In keeping with the heritage of the town of Tain, New Wine Church aims to be a church where:
EVERYONE IS WELCOME
EVERYONE’S NEEDS ARE MET
EVERYONE IS CHANGED
We look forward to meeting you!
