Sunday Worship

Sunday Worship is at 10am weekly, both on-line and in the Kirk

The wearing of masks when attending worship services, including weddings, funerals and christenings is no longer a legal requirement.  

However, it remains the personal choice of individuals if they wish to continue wearing masks when attending worship and also when singing during the service.  To address any concerns which individuals may have in this regard, a number of rows at the back of the church will be clearly signed for people wishing to wear masks and where individuals can choose to sit at least one metre apart from another household.

We would ask everyone attending the in-person worship services to be aware of the concerns which some people may have about coming to church.  Please respect the fact that individuals may wish to continue to sit at least one metre away from another household.  

If anyone has any of the symptoms which have been associated with Covid, we would encourage you to join us in worshipping online rather than attending the in-person service.

Thank you for your continuing involvement in St Michael's. We look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday.

Aspire Linlithgow

Help restore Linlithgow's stunning architectural symbol !

The Crown of Thorns spire of St Michael's Parish Church has become the modern built symbol of our town since it was installed in 1964. But decades of Scottish weather have taken their toll: both the aluminium cladding and sections of the timber structure now need to be replaced with modern, long-life materials.

Let's aspire to remake history by safeguarding this iconic Linlithgow structure for future generations to enjoy.

Donating with Stewardship is really easy and completely secure. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give.

·         You could set up a monthly standing order for regular giving – please contact either Tim Brown on finance@stmichaels-parish.org.uk or Andrew Jones on giving@stmichaels-parish.org.uk and either Tim or Andrew will be able to send you a standing order form and advise on Gift Aid
