Lochranza & Pirnmill Church of Scotland belonging to Ardrossan Presbytery is part of the linkage of North Arran Parish which includes the churches of Brodick – Corrie – St. Molios Shiskine, which cover the North and West of the Island of Arran.

Over the years, there have been many benefactors to The Church
 and some of theses are noted here:

  • Two Stained Glass Panels by Alexander Kerr, of Catacol, 
when the Free Church closed; also the lamps.

  • The Pulpit, Four Chairs and Communion Table, by The Rev. James Dow, 
gifted from Cartsburn Church, Greenock.

  • The Pulpit Lantern with the red cross, made by an apprentice shipyard worker
 and gifted by The Rev. James Dow.

  • The Pulpit Bible & Communion Linen, gifted by Mr & Mrs Findlay Newton, 
of The Anchorage, in memory of the Kerr family of The Anchorage.

  • The Communion Table Runner and Pulpit Fall, by Mrs Simon Boscawen, 
of Machrie in memory of her Husband.

  • The Brass Flower Urn, by Mrs May Brown, of Bridgend.

  • The Pedestal Lectern, by the late Arthur Poole, of Old Ladeside.

  • Bibles and Mission Praise Hymnals, 
by Mrs Meg Smith (Murchie), in memory of the Murchie Family.

  • CH4 Hymn books, from Friends of Lochranza Kirk and from Christine Knox of Pier House, 
in memory of her husband Tom  -  and other donors.

There have been many other bequests, too numerous to mention, and for these the congregation will be forever grateful.

Pirnmill Church is a listed building, and was built approximately around 1920...

The old sandstone church in Pirnmill, built in 1912 was deemed to be too expensive to maintain and Presbytery wanted the congregation to move up to Lochranza.
However too few people had transport and “The Tin Church” (formerly the Free Church Hall) was leased and has since been the centre of worship in Pirnmill.
