Welcome to the Website of Kilmacolm Old Kirk – a parish church of the Church of Scotland.

OUTLOOK and the SOLAS Bereavement Drop-In Group have recommenced their activities from the beginning of February 2022.
Proposed Union between Kilmacolm Old and Kilmacolm St Columba
The Basis of Union was approved by Clyde Presbytery at their meeting on 14 September 2021 and this decision subsequently received the concurrence of the General Assembly’s Faith Nurture Forum.
The question of which buildings were to be used by the united congregation was determined by a team of three arbiters appointed from Glasgow Presbytery. A copy of their determination is appended below.
Permission was also given by Clyde Presbytery, with the concurrence of the Faith Nurture Forum, for the united congregation to call a minister on the basis of a five year reviewable tenure. A copy of this basis of appointment is appended below.
Voting papers were issued to the members and adherents of both congregations to be submitted to the Clyde Presbytery office and on 3 March 2022, these were counted, the result being as follows :
Kilmacolm Old Kirk – For 255 Against 1
Kilmacolm St Columba – For 28 Against 67
As there was not a majority vote in favour from both congregations, the matter has been referred back to the Presbytery Planning Committee for further consideration.
Every congregation in Clyde Presbytery was instructed to carry out a mission audit, detailing their missional activities, and to submit this to Presbytery by January 2022. The Old Kirk mission audit was presented to and approved by our Kirk Session at a meeting held on 6 January 2022 and a copy of this is appended below.
