Welcome to the website of Linlithgow St Michael's.
Our vibrant church has much to offer to both residents and visitors of Linlithgow. We trust that this website demonstrates a little of the worship and life of our congregation.
"St Michael is kinde to strangers" says our ancient town motto. We hope that you will feel equally welcome in our midst.
St Michaels can be found beside Linlithgow Palace, right in the centre of the Royal Burgh. Services are held in the Kirk every Sunday at 9.30 and again at 11.00. During term time, services are also held at Springfield Primary School at 9.45.
Fellowship: We are very keen for people to share fellowship between services. If you are able and would like to join us for tea or coffee, please leave your car in the Vennel car park.

West Lothian Foodbank's "Combined Harvest Appeal" – Because of of increased demand and a reduction in donations of food and finance West Lothian Foodbank are having difficulty maintaining the service to individuals and families in crisis in West Lothian. Since early August we have seen a 32% increase in clients compared to the same period last year, while food donations have dropped by more than 50%. We desperately need more food and more importantly more finance. Last year we fed 3564 men women and children in West Lothian. You can see a list of food items urgently required at westlothian.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food. Donations can be handed in any Sunday to church or Cross House. Financial donations can also be made via a "donations" link on the same page. Thank you!
