    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 July 2020

    The Scottish Government has indicated that churches may now reopen for times of private prayer and congregational worship. However, after carefully considering the onerous requirements which would have to be met to comply with the regulations and Church of Scotland guidance, it has been decided that for the time being Lochgilphead Parish Church will remain closed until Phase 4 of the SG Covid-19 Route Map has been reached, when the situation will be reviewed.

    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
