Church Overview

Kay Park Parish Church was formed by the union of Henderson Parish Church and Kilmarnock Old High Parish Church in November 2012, worshipping in the former Henderson Parish Church, close to the 30-acre Kay Park.

The former Henderson Parish Church building is a brilliantly individual Arts & Crafts treatment of Gothic motifs by Thomas Smellie, Kilmarnock, completed in 1907. The church, with its tall tower, is built on rising ground, with halls below. Carillon of bells 1950.

We hold an early morning worship service in our Side Chapel at 9.45 on a Sunday Morning (Unless otherwise intimated)and hol morning worship at 11am, all will be made most warmly welcome at both services.
