New Laigh Kirk rejoices together to worship, to sing to God’s Praise and Glory on Sunday 12th September 2021 beginning at 11.00am.
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.
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.
We are keen to get to know you. Come to one of our gatherings or call in during the week when the church is open. Watch out for events on our website. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter or send us an e-mail. We’ll be pleased to hear from you.
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.
The Christian faith is always looking forward, always expectant, always waiting, always preparing. You and I live on the other side of Christmas but we are still a waiting, hoping, longing people. We want our Christmas to coincide with the coming of the Lord.
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.
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!
