St Colmon is a rural church set in the Stinchar Valley, one of the most beautiful parts of Ayrshire.
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.
We are once again able to worship together from Sunday 28th March 2021 in time for Easter celebrations. Sunday worship will take place as usual from 10.00am and the number of people who can congregate together has been set at 50. We will be strictly adhering to all guidelines regarding Covid-19 and face coverings must still be worn. We very much look forward to being able, once again, to worship together and welcoming everyone back into the church building. If you have any queries, or require any further details or the services of the minister, please do not hesitate to contact Theo, or Lynne McIlwraith.

Psalm 92: 1-4, 12-15
Mark 4: 26-34
Hymns: For the fruits & The Kingdom of God
We looked today at these two parables which Jesus used to speak about the Kingdom Of God. The Kingdom of God is present where God’s will is done on earth as in heaven. It is to do with the reign of God.
The first parable, found only in Mark’s gospel, is about the growing seed. Though seeds are planted one cannot see them germinate and grow. In the same way seeds of faith need to be sown although at times we do not see them growing. God helps the seeds that we plant to germinate and grace grows too within our hearts and lives. Though we may not see results immediately we need never doubt that God is at work growing the seeds we sow. Even though all seeds do not germinate the farmer does not lose hope.
The second parable was that of the mustard seed. Though the mustard seed stood for the smallest possible thing, the growth into a large tree represented how great things can come from small beginnings. Though the gospel began to be preached by 12 apostles it has come to be known throughout the world. We must never despise the day of small things, but remember that great results can come from our feeble efforts when blessed by God. Even when faith seems small, we need to remember that it is a living plant and will continue to grow.
Be encouraged to sow seeds of faith day by day. Though we might need to start small God is still at work, to bless.
Yours in Christ,
Rev`d Theo Corney
