Welcome to Torphichen Kirk!

We are a Church of Scotland congregation located in the small village of Torphichen, West Lothian.
All are welcome!


Sunday Mornings

Morning services take place in the Kirk at 11.15am.

Evening services are held on Zoom at 7pm.

Zoom Services

We hold Sunday evening Zoom services. The services are participatory, with suggestions and contributions from everyone. We have had folk attending when on holiday, in hospital or when housebound and either by tablet, computer or phone- even landline. Around a quarter of the folk now attending are not members of Torphichen; some even join from Africa and across the Atlantic!

The services are at 7.00pm and you can join in by tablet, computer or phone from 6.50pm.

Torphichen Churchyard Historic Gravestones

Preserving the heritage of 6 historically significant, mid-1700s gravestones within Torphichen Churchyard which are recognised as being a Community asset with tourist value, has gained wide interest & support (practical & financial).
Following consultation with West Lothian Council, Historic Environment Scotland, Torphichen Kirk Session & Knights of St John, and enquiries from the local community, an affordable proposal has
been developed.
It is proposed to re locate the 6 most important stones a short distance, and erect a protective roof structure to better preserve them and slow down deterioration. This is similar to projects carried out elsewhere.

For further information or if you would like to get involved, please contact the group’s co-ordinator: Chris Haywoodat torphcah@gmail.com

Annual Accounts for 2022

The Kirk's annual accounts for 2022 are available here.


We are grateful for the financial support provided through regular giving such as standing orders, and direct bank payments.

If you are able, you may wish to consider either setting up a standing order or pay by bank transfer your offerings.
If that is not suitable for you, a locked offering box will be placed near the door within the Sanctuary for offerings to be given on arrival. The box will be emptied regularly, and the money deposited in the bank account and we will be able to claim gift aid on them using the small gift aid donation scheme.

If you wish to set up a standing order or other direct bank donations please contact for further information our Treasurer James White on 07922 124724.

With every blessing for your ongoing support of the work of the Kirk.
