Meet God in Worship, Silence and Service

About St. Andrew's Scots Kirk

Located in the heart of Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lanka, St. Andrew’s Scots Kirk has come to be known as an oasis to its many passing visitors. Within this beautiful early 20th Century building one finds that moment of solitude, away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy city outside, for a quiet time with our Lord.

We invite you to worship with us whenever you are able to.

Minister at St. Andrew's Scots Kirk

Revd Ian Gilmour, here with with Kumar, our church officer at Haputale, is delighted to be serving St Andrew’s.
He arrived earlier this year to be Locum Minister from another St Andrew’s congregation (St Andrew’s and St George’s West) in Edinburgh, Scotland. He finds the church members friendly and committed and is pleased to have witnessed more people attending church. Ian worked in banking, local government and accounting before entering the ministry. He has served mainly in Scotland but has been involved in projects in Africa and America. He is married to Donna and their family will all come to visit Sri Lanka. The best thing about St Andrew’s Scots Kirk is that people are open to attempt a new thing. His favourite saying from the bible is,

"God is love, and those who live in love, live in God and God lives in them."
