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.
Here is a video of St Michaels from Huck Finn Imagery

Today we light the candle of peace, praying for the people of Aleppo who have suffered so much in recent days and for their future, remembering also all Prisoners of Conscience who find the cards sent from our Church such a great encouragement. Please pray for our new Elders ordained today as they commit themselves to the service of the Lord in our Church and Parish.
