At St Machan's we are a welcoming, family orientated group of people who want to learn and experience God's will through prayer, discussion and Bible study. 

We would love to see the church in our town grow and develop, to be relevant to the folks who live within our community and to be a meaningful presence for God and his purposes.

We believe that children and young people have  a special place in God's heart and we at St Machan's aim to facilitate and encourage our youngsters via our creche and Sunday Fun Club.


Our Sunday service is at 11am and is led by our minister Alastair McKillop.

Alastair is not only gifted at sharing God's word, he is also a talented singer and songwriter.He is also very modest!!However his jokes leave a lot to be desired, so be warned!!

The singing is led by our very talented organist Fiona and choir for 3 weeks in the month. On the 4th week we have our super worship band led by Nan Richardson.

After the service there are refreshments and a chance for a catch up in the church hall.


Although Sunday is our main service there is also an informal smaller service midweek. This is  very relaxed and friendly and is led by a few members of the congregation. This popular service attracts folks who may or may not come along on Sunday.

During the week there are a number of activities which take place which you can find out about as you browse the website.


We are delighted you have taken the time to look at our website and we would love to see you on Sunday,  at any event throughout the week or at any of our special events.


During this time of lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic Alastair has been sending out regular reflections, including a Sunday, and we recently had our first zoom chat with some of the congregation. If you would like to receive Alastair's reflections or wish to take part in future zoom chats please contact Alastair who will e-mail the reflections to you. Please see out photos section for picture of out first zoom chat.
