Alloway Parish Church
FIND US ON
May I offer you, through our website, a warm welcome to Alloway Parish Church. The village of Alloway is best known as the birthplace of Robert Burns - Scotland's national poet. However, evidence shows that a Christian community has existed here since the 16th Century – perhaps even earlier! Completed in 1890, the present Church is situated in the very heart of our local community which enables us to be an open and welcoming Church family. Hopefully, our website will give you a flavour of the varied life and witness of its sizeable and lively congregation within which there is always something on the go. Please explore and enjoy our website and feel free to join any of our activities at which you will be made most welcome. Our prayer is that you too will find blessing and joy in His service.
Yours in Him
Rev Neil McNaught
