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.
