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.

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


Sunday 19th June 2022

Today, we looked at how Jesus cured a demoniac. The mans life was completely turned around after his encounter with Jesus. All that oppressed him was gone and he was then in his right mind. This was demonstrated by the fact that he then wanted learn at Jesus feet. This mans transformation and his desire to follow Jesus when healed was opposite that of the others who wanted to drive Jesus away. The man wanted to follow Jesus but Jesus sent him home to witness to his transformation. His dramatic change meant that he could be a great witness to those around him. We too need to witness to others of what the Lord has done for us and welcome others to begin a journey of faith. God can do Marvelous things!

Every blessing,

Theo Corney
