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.


Get connected

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.

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.

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!

Community and Families

As I’m sure many of you know, my position with the church was furloughed for the last two months; a decision that was definitely in my, and the church’s, best interests. It has been an exceptional challenge for me not to see all of you and the families of New Laigh Kirk regularly on a Sunday morning.
