Strathaven Rankin and Chapelton Parish Churches are both part of the Hamilton Presbytery of the Church of Scotland. The Vision of the Church of Scotland is to be a church which seeks to inspire the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic worshipping, witnessing and serving communities.
As congregations, we were linked in 1960 and have operated very successfully by co-operating together under a shared ministry. Both churches have active Sunday Schools, creche facilites and a range of organisations.
We would be especially pleased to see you in person in one of the congregations at Sunday worship (9.30am in Chapelton and, normally, 11am in Strathaven) whether you are visiting the town of Strathaven or the village of Chapelton or are new to the area. Pew Bibles are available and there is an Induction Loop System fitted in both churches.
The mid-week informal fellowship will recommence from the beginning of October. Apart from just enjoying each others company and getting to know one another, we have a short talk and a time of prayer. We would be really pleased if you could join us either at Rankin or at Chapelton.
Rankin: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from 10.30am - 11.45am.
Chapelton: 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 11.30am - 12noon, followed by lunch in the hall.
Rankin Church is located in Lethame Road, Strathaven ML10 6AD and Chapelton Church is in Bents Road, Chapelton ML10 6SA
