There are three congregations in The Church of Scotland in West Kintyre and Gigha.
Our ‘formal’ name is Gigha and Cara liked with Kilcalmonell linked with Killean and Kilchenzie – so it is good to have a shorter ‘everyday’ name!
The congregations are:
Killean and Kilchenzie (known as A’Chleit Church) a little north of Muasdale Village
Kilcalmonell (known as Clachan Church) in the village of Clachan
Gigha and Cara (known as Gigha Church) on the Isle of Gigha.
People have been settling in this area since Mesolithic times. They have left permanent reminders on our landscape of standing stones, burial mounds, duns and ancient chapels that tell us just a little about how they lived and worshipped.
10,000 years later, people still live and worship in this beautiful rural and remote place. Some were born here and are 5th or 6th generation locals. Attracted by the peace and beauty of the area, many others have now joined us and made their home. It follows that we are an interesting mix of people from all walks of life.
