A caring and welcoming church at the heart of Kilmarnock, reaching out to you with the Gospel of Jesus Christ


New Laigh Kirk is a well known landmark at the centre of Kilmarnock. We welcome you to join our community of faith as we journey together on our spiritual paths. New Laigh Kirk is not a closed shop or a Holy Club, but a caring community, reaching out to all.
The church is more than the building – it’s the people. We consider ourselves a community hub, outreaching to care homes, hospitals and schools within Kilmarnock. Our church halls on John Finnie street also hosts community projects and groups suited for all ages, from tiny tots to senior citizens. We welcome you!

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.

Girls at Guides won’t be your average friends. They’ll be the girls who want to go on adventures with you, who encourage you to try new things and who celebrate when you’ve pushed yourself to achieve something special.

As girls progress through Guides they’ll have a chance to lead small groups and support younger girls to have fun and make friends. They can even get involved in our leadership opportunities. Guides are never stuck for something to do.
