Our church is in the parish of Hurlford, situated in East Ayrshire. We are three miles from Kilmarnock with good road links to the M77 to Glasgow and the A71 towards Edinburgh or the Ayrshire coast. The twin villages of Crookedholm and Hurlford are friendly places with an industrial legacy of mining and metal forging. The villages are surrounded by farmland in the Irvine Valley. There are lovely walks nearby. Though we have an industrial past we are now mainly commuter villages. We have a primary school in the villages with an academy in Galston and three academies in Kilmarnock. Hurlford and Crookedholm have local shops.
After twenty years service, our Minister, Revd James McCulloch retired in April 2016, and we were extremely lucky in having Revd Dr Samuel Hosain Lamarti as our Locum Minister for over a year during the vacancy. Sam moved on to be Locum at Darvel Parish Church and we were blessed to have a new Minister, Revd Ada V MacLeod take up her charge on 7th June 2018. Ada, Calum and the family have now moved into the Manse and it gives us great joy to have a Manse family there once more! We are indeed blessed!
