Church Community

CommunityThe Church Centre in Glencruitten Road is as important as any of the actual "church" buildings. This is where much of our contact with the wider community takes place. Many different groups hire the various rooms. The Toy Cupboard, Feis and Zumba classes mean that many youngsters and their parents are regular visitors. Tai Chi, NHS & Council events also occur at the centre, and of course church based ones.


The Guild meets at 2pm on the second Wednesday of the month. Originally just for women, membership was changed to include men several years ago. The Guild programme is varied and interesting. For a copy of the year’s programme please contact the Church Centre or see our news pages for imminent events.

Coffee & Chat - Wednesdays 10.30-12.00

Regulars and occasional visitors, churchgoers and casual acquaintances. Many but by no means all are retired folk. Some drop in for a few minutes, others stay for an hour or more.

Prayer Group

The prayer group meets at 11.30am every Tuesday to pray for the church family, our local community and for wider national and world concerns. Please contact the Church Centre for more information.

Hope Kitchen

In response to families and individuals struggling to make ends meet all the churches in Oban got together to found the Lord's Larder (now Hope Kitchen). Food and toiletries are donated regularly and people in need are referred by the Social Work Department. The schools often give the proceeds of their Harvest services. We have boxes in the churches which are emptied on the 2nd Sunday of each month. Financial contributions are also welcome so that some fresh food can be included in parcels.


There is a part time hospital chaplain and our ministers are always available to visit if requested.


Wednesdays (Not July and August) 3.00 - 4.30pm in Oban Parish Church.

Our choir sings an introit every week. On specific occasions the choir aids worship through singing anthems or additional music within the service. Come along and join.

Recorder Club

Primary school children (P5 - P7) meet at 3.30pm on Tuesdays in the Church Centre. The group occasionally plays during Sunday worship and also enters local music competitions. For more information please contact the Church Centre.
