Vault and Gallery Fully Open




The Lamont Gallery is at  last fully open to the public.  It will be open twenty four hours every day of the week.

It has been a long haul to get to this stage.  As many will know the Vault has been open for some time and the Gallery was open  until the installation of the Inveryne Stone.  For safety and security reasons the authorities insisted that a plate glass screen was fitted in front of the stone before it was put on view.  It has taken some time to source suitable fixings for this but  everything is finally in place.

We look forward  to seeing visitors and would love it if you were to give us your feedback directly by e-mail.

Kyles Singers

On Monday 20 August the Kyles Singers gave a concert of well known songs to a capacity audience in the Village Hall opposite the Church.

Transport was provided by Cowal Elderly Befrienders which meant that people could come from as far away as Dunoon.

After the performance a superb Afternoon Tea  was provided by a team of local volunteers.

Donations will go towards the maintenance of the Vault and the Ancient  Stones.

War Grave

We recently found out through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission that one of the graves in the Churchyard is a designated War Grave from WW 1

It is that of Alexander Weir (Plot 135) who was an Able Seaman with the Mercantile Marine Reserve who died on 19 October 1915 in the service of his country.

Christmas Services

As is our custom two special services will take place at Kilfinan over the Christmas period. The first of these will be the Christingle service on the Sunday before Christmas  at 3.00 pm. This is specially suitable for children. The other service is on Christmas Day  at 11.00 am.  

Each year we also host two special services during Holy Week.  The first of these is on Maunday  Thursday and the second on Easter Sunday.  All these services are always well attended.

Remembrance Sunday

The Service of Remembrance in the Church and the laying of a wreath at the War Memorial will take place on Sunday 11th November.

Thrift Shop

The Charity Shop in Tighnabruaich had been leased by a an organisation called the Friends of West Cowal.   It has been such a success that the Churches have purchased the premises outright.

All proceeds from the shop will be used for the benefit of the four churches of the Charge.  In the first full year a total of £10,000 was distributed to the three congregations.

Service of Remembrance

The Annual Service of remembrance will be held at 12.15 PM  on Sunday  11 November.

After the service there will be a laying of  wreaths at the War Memorial.

All are invited to a Soup and Sandwich Lunch in the Village Hall afterwards.  All proceeds will go to the Erskine Hospital.

History Centre

A local history centre is being prepared in a room accessed from the rear of the Church. We hope it will be open to the public very soon.
