Wick Harbour Mission
The Church interior today.
In the early 1960's, Alexander Cormack who was the son of Mrs and Mrs Alexander Cormack of Roadside, Huna had visions for the Gospel to be proclaimed in Wick. A small group of Christians began meeting in Sunday mornings in the Cormack home. They were also meeting in premises beside the Wick Harbour.
As the Church started up and grew Mr Turney came as pastor. It was at this time the Deep Sea Mission premises were bought as a permanent meeting place. Because the building was beside the Harbour it became known as the Wick Harbour Mission, a reformed Baptist Church. After Mr Turney returned to England, Sandy Cormack took over, after his death in 1969 his son Jimmie took over the work for the next forty years.
In 2008 Jimmie passed away and the Church was without a permanent pastor for eight years. Men from across the country came to preach weekly. The Harbour Mission now has permanent Minister, Rev. Gilbert McAdam who came in January 2017. Gilbert's induction took place at 7:30pm on Friday the 31st of March 2017 at the Harbour Mission. People from near and far came to the new Minister's induction, one estimate was at one hundred and seventy people. The Mission is still alive today burning for God with the same purpose, Preaching Christ... the hope of Glory.
