    Lochgilphead Parish Church and the Church Hall are now closed until further notice

    On advice in the strongest terms from the Church of Scotland "all gatherings for worship should cease until further notice, with effect from Wednesday 18th March 2020."

    Therefore, all services at Lochgilphead Parish Church have now ceased and the Church hall is closed.  We continue to monitor all advice and update when we are able. Please check our Facebook Page for regular updates.

    The latest Government advice can be found here. An Argyll & Bute  dedicated helpline offering advice and help to vulnerable people across Argyll and Bute during the coronavirus outbreak is now available here.

    Update September 2020

    The Church will be open for private prayer on Wednesday 23rd September from 1pm – 2pm and then, for the moment, every second Wednesday thereafter. This is our first step on the road back to being able to open again for worship, although this is not likely to happen until Phase 4 of the SG route map. These plans may change at short notice.
    If you wish to use the church for private prayer, you should enter by the rear door (hall side) and exit from the side door (Manse Brae side). Please use the sanitiser provided as you enter and leave the building, and maintain 2m social distancing within the building should others be present. In order to maintain social distancing in the pews, the number of spaces is restricted, so you will be directed to a seat. Face masks must be worn in the Sanctuary. In order to comply with Test and Protect requirements, you will be asked to provide your 
    contact details. It is the responsibility of each one of us to adhere to these restrictions to keep us all safe. Please remember this is for private prayer, and any conversations should be kept outside the building.

  • All are Welcome in this Place

    A message from Rev Hilda Smith

    Welcome to our website! It's an integral part of our vision for our congregation and community which includes renewing our Building, renewing how people view our Church and indeed the Church, renewing our approach to outreach so that God becomes accessible to the man and woman and child in the street, renewing our faith and commitment to serve God and each other. It’s a tall order but one we hope to be able to meet.

    During this period of lockdown, while the Church is closed and we can't meet together for worship, Rev Hilda Smith has posted a reflection every week on the Church Facebook page and they are collected together here

    For Church Members – Please keep up to date with your financial giving to your Church.  Please continue with your standing orders and direct debits.  If you give by way of envelopes/donations save these and bring to Church when we re-open.   

    If you would like to change to direct bank giving please let us know and we can give you the necessary information.   There will be a significant impact on our Church finances over these weeks so your continued generosity will be particularly important and very much appreciated.

    You can also make a donation online by going to the Church of Scotland webpage https://cos.churchofscotland.org.uk/donate/ and follow the instructions.
