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 22nd May 2022

Today we looked at the peace that Christ gives to his disciples. Jesus promised his disciples that they would receive the Holy Spirit and could know his abiding presence whatever difficulties they might face. We know that the apostles persevered though they faced many difficulties. We also know that life comes with many uncertainties for all of us. The truth is that we can receive this peace through simple trust in God and his goodness. He seeks to bless us with his presence as we live from day to day.

Rev`d Theo Corney
