Weekly Services

The highlight of our week. We draw inspiration and strength from worshipping together - in-person or online. Different age groups prefer different styles of worship and we don’t assume that "one style fits all". We enjoy a rich heritage of Christian music alongside lively, modern praise bands.

Sunday Services

Youth groups and organisations

New Laigh Kirk is a church for everyone. As well as the regular Sunday service we have Kingz Kidz (4-12), TrekkersNG (12-18) and Tots Praise (0-4). Once a month we have a modern worship service and during school holidays we run themed holiday clubs. Come along and join in the fun.

What to expect at NLK

You will find a friendly welcome. Your first impression on a Sunday is likely to be a buzz of chat as people meet and enjoy one another’s company. Soon our focus turns to worship of God through music, prayer and listening to the message from the Bible. Then we step out to be the church in the community for the rest of the week.

Back to School Bags

Every year, hundreds of children across Scotland go back to school without the supplies they need. We have launched this project to donate a filled schoolbag to a local family to equip and bless local children and young people.

Get to know New Laigh Kirk

Our church building is a well known landmark at the centre of Kilmarnock. You are welcome to come inside and find out what happens when people of all ages meet for worship. It’s not a closed shop or a Holy Club, but a caring community, reaching out to all.

The church is more than the building – it’s the people. We are out and about in Kilmarnock – visiting care homes, hospitals and schools, volunteering in the community and hosting groups from toddlers to senior citizens and homeless folk in our John Finnie Street halls.

For more information on the Church of Scotland's response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic please see here.

Easter Message

The season of Lent is almost over, Palm Sunday gives way to the events of Holy Week. Easter arises before us. We’ll not be gathering for the build up of this most significant day in our calendar to sing our Alleluias and be so encouraged and assured of our faith and the promise of the resurrection.

Homeless Jesus in Kilmarnock

A figure lying on a street bench, wrapped in a blanket which covers the head and face, but with bare feet showing. It might seem an unusual subject for a sculpture. Look closely, and notice the feet bear the marks of having been pierced by nails. This homeless man lying on a bench is Jesus.

Keep soldiering on!

So, 2020 is finally over and even though we're having a bit of a slow start to 2021, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for all of us. Yes, we have all faced challenges and dealt with some very low moments in the last year, but now is the time for a new start!
