Whether you’re a member of the congregation, a resident of Troon, or are just passing through…
Welcome Home Children of God!
Grace and Peace to you from God, and from our Lord Jesus Christ. Welcome home Children of God.
Each service of worship begins with these words. They remind us of God’s loving intent towards creation and our response to that embracing love. We are far from perfect but try our best to live out of such a love. We don’t promise to have all the answers, but we try to walk together in the questions.
You will find all kinds of different folk at Troon Old, even a Tennessee Hillbilly for a minister. We come from all over Troon, from all parts of Scotland, and a few us from around the world. We don’t all believe in the same ways, or vote for the same parties or serve with the same gifts. Yet we are bound by the same love of God who reminds us that if our hearts are united in Christ, our heads don’t have to be.
Whatever questions or doubts, wounds or gifts you bring to life, we believe you are beloved of God. We hope you will feel warmly welcomed in our midst. The Apostle Paul says “you are no longer strangers and aliens, but citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” As such we try to see each other as God sees us, as beloved children of God.
We hope you will stop by and see us.

On Friday 20th March, BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘The Big Debate’ will be broadcast live from Troon Old Parish Church. This weekly programme, now hosted by Gordon Brewer, engages a guest panel of speakers and the audience in a lively topical debate on the big issues. Members of the audience can submit questions for discussion on any topic – the producers say “We look for questions on the most stimulating moral, political and social issues of the day – the current issues that will get people talking” so there’s plenty of scope to challenge the politicians, policy makers, writers and thinkers.
Admission to the programme is free, but you must book your place in advance. You can book directly with BBC Radio Scotland: online at http://bbc.in/1DB0P4T, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Big Debate team on 0141 422 7776.
All are welcome to join the audience, and we are inviting as wide a cross-section of the community as possible. So book your place now and remember to tell your neighbours!
