What We Do

Our parish has two places of worship:
Avendale Old Parish Church in Kirk Street, Strathaven
and Drumclog Memorial Kirk in Drumclog, about five miles west of Strathven.
Join us for Sunday worship at Drumclog at 9:30am, or at Avendale at 11am.  We also run a series of informal Cafe Church services throughout the year.

Verse of the Day


For the second year in a row a group of enthusiastic volunteers got together with Brian Lowrie of MaD Ministries ( to share the story of Jesus with children aged 5 to 12. Using fun activities and a variety of craft projects together with Bible teaching, we spent 5 days helping the young people to understand who “Most Wanted” Jesus and what they “Most Wanted” from him.

We are now looking at future events to continue this work alongside our regular Messy Church events which take place every month. Watch the calendar for more details!
