Welcome to Ardchattan Parish churches
Our church serves the communities of Benderloch, Bonawe, Barcaldine, North Connel, and surrounding areas, all near Oban in Argyll, Scotland. We are part of The Church of Scotland, which is Reformed & Presbyterian, similar to the United Reformed Church in England & the Lutheran Church on the Continent. We have two churches; Ardchattan Kirk on the shores of Loch Etive, and St Modan's church in the village of Benderloch.
Our Minister, Reverend Jeff McCormick, provides pastoral services to the whole parish.
The Aim of the Church in the Community
Throughout the Parish of Archattan the church provides a service every Sunday in one or both churches, and the All Stars (Sunday School) are a thriving, and very happy group. Evening meetings for all ages together - the 'Half Hour Happenings' are currently being held monthly in the North Connel Hall.
Worship is also provided in the schools in the parish, and in the Ford Spence sheltered housing complex, monthly, also in the Lynn of Lorn care facility when required.
Weddings and baptisms are welcomed by arrangement with the minister and funerals can be arranged when necessary.
Groups associated with the church include the Guild (generally in the Campbell Memorial Hall) and Badminton in the Victory Hall, Scouts & Guides, 'Club nan Caraidean' and regular events like our holiday club for kids.
We hope you find our website a useful information resource. Please contact us if you need any more information.
