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.

The late Rev Ranald Gauld
Many of us fondly remember Ranald Gauld who was Assistant to the Rev Ian Paterson in the early '90s. Sadly, Ranald died at an early age in February. Several St Michael's people attended the funeral in Keith. A tribute has been written by Rev Ian Paterson and is available here.

At the beginning of Lent, whether we give something up during this time or commit ourselves to a new area of service as we follow Jesus’ journey towards the Cross and to His resurrection and our salvation, we pray that we may be reminded of what is important, what is not and what we need to change so that by Easter we will be renewed and strengthened in His service.
