Saint Kiaran’s church was built in 1897 by well-known Glasgow architect Peter McGregor Chalmers. The church is situated between the picturesque villages of Bruichladdich and Port Charlotte and has beautiful panoramic views over Lochindaal.


Within the last two years the church has had an update, with disabled toilet and access, kitchen and meeting room.


Our services are held at 11.30 am on Sundays and we have a very active Sunday school who meet at the Field centre in Port Charlotte at the same time.

Throughout the year we hold Family services involving the Sunday school including Mothering Sunday, Harvest Festival and Christmas services, with the always entertaining Nativity.


The church is supported by a dedicated Worship Team, and talented musicians who enjoy playing for all our services and social events.


Amongst our congregation are 11 Elders, 3 board members and 53 members belonging to the church. We have regular attendance amongst the congregation which rises in numbers during the holiday periods, with new and returning visitors, who always comment on the warm welcome they receive.


The church actively fundraises throughout the year with ceilidhs, coffee afternoons, strawberry teas and coffee cakes and carols at Christmas.


As a congregation we make regular donations to Mary’s Meals and Christian Aid, along with other local charities.
