Worshippers first congregated on the Lorne and Lowland church site 250 years ago in 1767.

On Sunday July 2 that momentous period of celebrating Christianity will be marked by a special service for all at 11.15am followed by a bring and share lunch.

Using Psalm 90’s three score and 10 definition of a lifetime it is more than 3.5 lifetimes, of 70 years, since Lorne and Lowland’s earliest beginning as a Relief church.

Lorne and Lowland church has experienced its fair share of changes and unions across the centuries; the Relief church became part of the United Presbyterian Church in 1847, and the United Free Church in 1900 before joining the larger union of the Church of Scotland in 1929.

The current congregation has a rich heritage and in recent years the Longrow church, Castlehill church, Lowland church, Lorne Street church, as well as some worshippers from the Lochend United Free church, have all amalgamated.
