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.

On this first Sunday in Lent, O Lord, and through the coming weeks, we pray that you will search us and know our hearts, test us and know our thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in us, and lead us in the way everlasting, that this may be a time of renewal and re-dedication for each one of us.
