Who's Who In The Church?
Worship In East Yell  Church
East Yell Methodist Church - "The Chapel In The Valley" - was opened in 1892 and has provided a continuous witness for the folk of Yell and beyond since that time. The chapel has been modernised with a new oak floor and comfortable chairs yet still retains that special atmosphere of spirituality and Christian care that  embraces past, present and future.

Church Stewards are Mr Louis Johnson and Mr David Robertson.

Yell originally had three Methodist chapels A brief history of the development of Methodist worship in Yell can be found here
East Yell offers weekly worship throughout the year led by ministers and local preachers . Services are held at either 10.45 am or 2,45 pm with additional services on special occasions.

Services throughout Shetland are listed on our Preaching Plan (issued quarterly) giving details of dates, times, type of service and who is preaching.

The chapel is open for personal prayer or reflection at other times. Come along and join us and be assured of a warm welcome and fellowship, Afternoon services are followed by a cup of tea or coffee and a bite to eat.
