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 10.00 am every week. Thankfully, as restrictions start to ease, with effect from Monday 4th April the wearing of face masks whilst in the church building for worship, attending weddings or funerals is no longer mandatory but should anyone wish to continue wearing a mask then masks will available if required. The church building will continue to be sanitised before each service and hand sanitiser is available in the vestibule. We would ask, however, for the protection of everyone that should you be displaying symptoms of Covid-19 that you take a lateral flow test before you attend.

Refreshments are served in the church hall after the service for a time of fellowship.

A Service is held at 3.00 pm on the 3rd Sunday of every month in Barrhill Memorial Hall.

On Wednesdays we hold our Coffee in the Kirk Hall in Colmonell from 10 am – 12 noon

If you require any further details or the services of the minister, please do not hesitate to contact the Minister, Theo Corney.


Sunday 7th August 2022

For our service today we looked at how we might ready ourselves for when our Lord returns or calls us home. We considered how we would like to be found, which is in a right relationship with God and others and with our tasks complete. God loves us and has provided his Son for our salvation. We need to live lives of thankfulness asking what God would have us do. If we know God intimately and are serving him, will be ready when the time comes. God desires that we know him and involve him with our whole lives. Through this he gives us joy and his blessings.

Rev`d Theo Corney
