Sundays

Sunday worship is held every week at 10:00 am. For details see our Diary. Children are very welcome to join us. On the first, second and third Sundays in the month the service is at St Ninian’s Church, Moniaive.

On the fourth Sunday in the month, the service is usually at Glencairn Kirk, Kirkland.

If there is a fifth Sunday in the month, we join with our sister congregation of Dunscore for the morning service. The next Joint Services are on 31 December 2017 and 29 April 2018.

See the ‘Next Services’ box on the right of the page for the times and locations of these services. The ‘Contacts’ page shows the full addresses.

Since we are a linked charge with Dunscore Parish Church, and the minister preaches at both locations, early and late services alternate between the churches each year.

From the first Sunday in July 2017, our morning service will start at 10:00 am. The services at Dunscore will then revert to a 11:45 am start.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion, also called the Lord’s Supper, is open to all those who love the Lord Jesus Christ.

There are services of Holy Communion on three Sundays in the year, both in the morning and evening.

The next services of Holy Communion are on 26th November 2017.  See the ‘Next Services’ box on the right of the page for the times and locations of these services.

Baptism

Baptism, often described as ‘Christening’, is administered to adults who have come to Christian faith, or more usually to children of professing Christians.  The minister will be pleased to discuss this with you.

Weddings

Your parish minister is pleased to officiate at weddings which may take place in church, or at the minister’s discretion, elsewhere.  Please get in touch if you want to discuss a forthcoming marriage.

Funerals

The minister will be available to officiate at a funeral service for anyone in the parish.  You do not have to be a church member, or even associated with the church, to call upon the minister in this regard.  There is no charge for the minister, although other fees are payable.
