About Us

Church_building_02.jpg

Located in Lochgilphead in the beautiful west of Scotland, we are a congregation of the Free Church of Scotland in the Presbytery of Glasgow and Argyll.

We believe in one God in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour and LORD and believe the Bible to be the true and living Word of God.

As our church building needs restored we currently meet in the church hall. The entrance is around the corner on Manse Brae. We warmly invite you to worship God with us and to discover more about following Jesus.

You can read more about the history of the congregation and its ministers in Our Story
