We're an active congregation which prides itself in giving a warm and friendly welcome to visitors.

 

An average Sunday morning attendance would be 50/60 people.

 

Less formal worship ("Soul Searching") is held on the last Sunday of each month at 6pm, alternating each month with Inverkip Parish Church.

 

Communion services are held on the second Sunday of March, June, September and December, and on the Thursday evening of Holy Week. Short communions are held every month with the exception of November (which is Remembrance Sunday).

 

There is a well maintained hall which is widely used by the church and the local community.

 

The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible is used in worship and copies are available in the pews. Praise is taken mainly from Church Hymnary 4.
