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.

Time of Stillness
On Thursdays at 2pm there will be a 'Time for Stillness' in our beautiful church. St Katherine's Aisle is where we will gather. Come if you come to church often. Come if you have not been for a while. Come if your life is too busy. Come if your life feels empty. Just come and discover what fifteen minutes of stillness can do for you. There will be a short prayer and reading after which we will listen to music in the beauty and stillness of our church. Nothing will be asked of you and the service will last only fifteen minutes. Afterwards, should you wish, there is time to share fellowship over tea and cake in St. Katherine’s Aisle. All are welcome. Further info from Cheryl.

Podcasts are recorded at the 11.00 service. They are all available to hear againand can be found HERE. Please spread the word about them and listen again yourself. Recorded services in full are available on cassette or CD at the shop in the Kirk.
Do you want to see what the Kirk Session get up to in your name? The minutes of meetings are now available on this website and we now have them up to December 2012. Have a look and see what decisions are made on your behalf.
As the time for decision-making about Scotland’s future approaches, we pray that these last few weeks may be a time of sober reflection and weighing up of the alternatives and possibilities, free of aggression and scare-mongering. We pray for respect for and listening to each other and a willingness to accept and work within whatever the outcome may be.
