St Colmon Parish Church

Caring :: Sharing :: Praying

Situated in the picturesque village of Colmonell, South Ayrshire


St Colmon is a rural church set in the Stinchar Valley, one of the most beautiful parts of Ayrshire.

Sunday 10:00am


The parish covers four villages: Colmonell, Barrhill, Pinwherry and Lendalfoot. St Colmon Parish Church is linked with the neighbouring Ballantrae Parish Church. We are a church keen to welcome locals and visitors as we learn more about what our faith means to us and how we can better serve God in our communities and in the world.

Sunday worship takes place from 10.00am with a restriction on numbers to a maximum of 70 within the church building.  We will continue to adhere to all guidelines regarding  Covid-19 and face coverings must still be worn within the building, but we can now joyfully sing out.   Refreshments are served in the Kirk Hall after the service and everyone is invited to attend for a time of fellowship.  At the present time the Church of Scotland continues to advise that table-service is adopted. A Service of Worship is held in Barrhill Memorial Hall on the third Sunday of each month at 3 pm. If you require any further details or the services of the minister, please do not hesitate to contact Theo Corney or Lynne McIlwraith.

(Hymns from MPC)


Today, we took the theme of “Christ the King”. We looked at the kind of king that Jesus was and the way he came to reign. We looked at the way Jesus came to rule in hearts and lives, making the Kingdom of God present. We also looked at the way Jesus was misunderstood, but was ironically the Messiah. The first Advent was one of humiliation, and Jesus came to die for sinners. In the second Advent we will see Jesus return in great glory and majesty as he establishes his kingdom for ever. It is important that we see Jesus for who he is. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords and we need him to reign in our hearts and lives.


Every blessing,

Rev`d Theo Corney
