Stornoway High Church congregation votes to leave Kirk

Members of one of the Church of Scotland's biggest congregations on the Western Isles have voted unanimously to leave the Kirk.

At a meeting in the High Church in Stornoway on Tuesday night, 200 people backed the split.

The congregation has been unhappy at the way the Church of Scotland has handled the issue of the ordination of gay ministers.

Kinloch and Tarbert congregations have also been considering their position.
