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. Details of this week's services can be found in our Intimations section.
We are holding an event to commorate the 50th anniversery of the installation of the Crown of Thorns - There will be several notable speakers including Lord David Steel, whose father was Minister at the time. Please come along at 7.00pm on Sunday 23rd November.

St. John’s Evangelical and St. Michael’s RC churches are again doing Friday and we will be doing the Saturday. If you can manage an hour or two on the 29th then please sign up at the visitors stall at the back of the church today or contact Marshall on 842411 or

Today we celebrate Christ the King, appointed by God to be head over everything for the Church which is his body of which we are part. We pray that we may be worthy of Him, and faithful to Him in all we do in His name, living in hope and expectation “of the incomparable riches of God’s grace expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” Today, we give thanks too for Thom Riddell and all the service he gives and has given to Christ’s Church over the last 20 years.
