Welcome to our website - we invite you to look around and get a feel for our church.

If you're not currently a member of our church - we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services where as well as the main service of worship we also run a Sunday School, and Creche. Visitors are always most welcome to join us for the service and also afterwards for a cup of tea and a biscuit!

Come and join us, bring your family, or join our family.

Don't be shy. All are most welcome.

Sunday service is at 11am to 12noon every week, with a chance to chat, catch up and make friends over tea, coffee and a biscuit afterwards in the informal setting of the small hall.

We also run a regular midweek service in the small hall. This is a less formal service than Sundays and is a great chance to just pop in and say hello. There is also tea, coffee and friendly chat available after!

We are a Christian church promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Saltcoats. For more information on our beliefs under the Church of Scotland, see the Our Beliefs page here

There are many other activities that run in or from our church such as Badminton, Girls Brigade, The Guild, Choir, Country Dancing, and fitness groups, a spiritual discussion group, and many more. See our What's On page, click on the links above for more details or feel free to drop in any time we are open and check out the notice board.

There are also daily thoughts for the day on 3TFM at 9.10am provided by religious leaders from around the three towns community, including Rev Alex.

We hope you will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us as we worship and pray together at our services, events, and ministries.

In October of 2014 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our current church building (previously, what is now the large hall was the church).

Have a look at our History page to see some photos and memories of the church.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that whoever believes in Him shall not die but have everlasting life ."

John 3-16

God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, "I love you."

Billy Graham
