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.

Summer Services - Fruits of the Spirit From 3rd July until 14th August there will be one morning service in St Michael’s at 10am. Over the course of the Summer we will be looking at the Fruits of the Spirit and each week the entire Service will focus on a different Fruit – for example Peace, Kindness, Generosity. The 10am Service will draw from both the 9:30 and 11:00 services, with a focus on our younger people at the start. Summer Sunday Club will continue to be provided for children throughout the Summer – in exactly the same successful format as has been in place over the winter – with the children leaving after the second hymn. Music will be led by our choir and organ and if anyone wants to join our choir over the Summer please contact Andrew Sutherland (01506 845868,
) for details! Tea and coffee will be served after the Service in the Church. All are welcome!
Enquirers Classes will run for six consecutive Sundays in the afternoon from 9 October to 13 November in Cross House (Adam Room). We will be exploring questions related to spiritual journeys, the person and work of Jesus Christ, the bible, sacraments, and the life and work of St Michael’s. Anyone interested should contact the church office on 842188 or Rev Dr Stewart Gillan on 842195 or 07341.822058.
Holiday Club New Dates: The joint Holiday Club is trying something new! We’re now going to run from Wednesday 17 – Saturday 20 August 2016. Wednesday–Friday dates will run as a normal club with a Family Day on the Saturday. We’re looking for a team and hope you’ll put the dates in your diary!
Bereavement Support: The Bereavement Support Team offers confidential one-to-one support with the aim of helping you make sense of the painful and bewildering array of emotional, psychological and physical responses to bereavement, and to help you adapt to the loss. Positive Pathways informal support group meets fortnightly in the Canal Tearoom. Further information from Sheila Rae 847538
Prayer Focus We give thanks for our world and for all its beauty and resources. We pray that we may value it and care for it as it deserves. We remember those whose work provides us with food, and also the people of those countries where natural and man-made disasters have damaged the land on which they rely for their livelihood.
Feel free to join us for Weekly Prayers with Communion in the Queen’s Aisle on Wednesdays at 12.30. There is a box in the Queen’s Aisle in which to put requests for prayer. Or phone 822603 or 670980.
