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.
New Laigh Kirk is a church for everyone. As well as the regular Sunday service we have Kingz Kidz, TrekkersNG and Tots Praise. 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.
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.
Our Sunday morning services, currently streamed live on this website, are at 11 a.m. year round.
The church is open from 12 to 2 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Visitors are welcome to come in to enjoy a quiet time of prayer or a chat to our volunteers. Look around the church and find out about its history.
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.
As a Church we need to stick to the advice to be safe in these uncertain and anxious times. As a congregation New Laigh Kirk knows how to love our neighbour well. Now is a good time to be thinking proactively about who in the church and places where we live, our neighbours might need extra help.
