Lochgilphead Parish Church will reopen for worship on 6 June.
The Kirk Session has agreed, subject to there being no change to current Scottish Government advice, that the Church will open again for Sunday worship on Sunday June 6th, 2021. We will continue to monitor this and update things here and on our facebook page, if there is any change. Online reflections/worship will continue on Facebook on Sunday mornings.
The latest Government advice can be found here. An Argyll & Bute Council dedicated helpline offering advice and help to vulnerable people across Argyll and Bute during the coronavirus outbreak is now available here. The Church of Scotland also provides regular guidance for congregations.
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, I have posted reflections on the Church Facebook page and they are collected together here. On line services have also been posted and can be viewed here.
A TIME OF REFLECTION, MAY 2, 2021
Supporting your local Church
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.
