It is with profound regret that the Kirk Session of Lochwinnoch Parish Church inform the Lochwinnoch community that, following a process of consultation with the Session and congregation, the Presbytery of Greenock and Paisley has decided that the congregation shall be dissolved on 12th April 2020. The last service of worship will be on Easter Sunday at 11 am led by Very Rev Dr Lorna Hood, former moderator of the General Assembly.
The dwindling numbers of members and office bearers; the required substantial repairs and improvements needed to the buildings; and the national picture of a shortage of ministers in the Church of Scotland all contributed to this decision.
As a result of this the buildings i.e. church and halls will not be available for lets following the 12th of April. The General Trustees of the Church of Scotland will handle the sale of the manse and the disposal of the church and halls. For enquiries in this regard please contact email@example.com .
For enquiries regarding church membership please contact the Session Clerk, Ms Mary Barr, firstname.lastname@example.org .
For enquiries regarding church membership after the 12th of April please contact Greenock and Paisley Presbytery Office 01505 615033 .
