ST COLMON CHURCH, COLMONELL is currently under threat of closure. The Church of Scotland has announced plans to close and dispose of the Church building by September 2023. The historic church sits in the centre of Colmonell parish which includes Barrhill, Colmonell, Lendalfoot. Pinmore and Pinwherry.
To discuss these plans residents of these communities are invited to a meeting which will be held in Colmonell Community Centre, 26 September 2022 at 7.30pm.
Colmonell & Lendalfoot Community Council and Community Associations believe that the building should be preserved and remain available as a Festival Church, in order to celebrate weddings, christenings, funerals as well as Christian festivals eg Easter and Christmas. The main purpose of this meeting is to consult with the broader community and to canvas views from those who live in the parish (whether they attend church or not). Please come along and have your say.
If you are unable to attend please let us have your thoughts and ideas by contacting any CLCC/CCA/LCA member. We look forward to seeing as many as possible of you at the meeting. Please come along if you can.
