Here at Bellshill Central, you will find a warm welcome from committed Christian people who are serious about their faith journey but also enjoy having a good time. You will find passionate worship, which seeks to incorporate both the traditional and the new, and preaching that tries hard to make the Scripture message relevant to our daily living. If you want a Church that will honour your journey of faith and challenge you to go deeper into your relationship with Jesus Christ, then this is the place for you, and we are delighted to welcome you. Let no one feel a stranger in this place!
The next service within Bellshill Central Parish Church is on Sunday 6 August 2017 led by Rev de Beer at 11am. Kevin’s theme is “I feel like I am from another planet”. The bible readings are taken from Psalm 22:1-11 and 22-28 and Matthew 6:25-34. Our hymns include ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of God’, ‘Lord for the years’ and ‘Be still for the Presence of the Lord’. A summer choir practice will take place at 10am within the Church hall for anyone taking part. Activities for Children and Young Adults activities will be available during the service. Tea and coffee are served after the service. We would be delighted to welcome you in the LORD’s name. If you are a visitor to our church, do make yourself known to one of the welcome team. We are a warm and welcoming church at the heart of our town — Central Church is Central to Bellshill, Central to Christ and Central to YOU!
Our monthly tea and coffee takes place after the service on 6th August and all are cordially invited to stay behind for refreshments and fellowship.
We Live Stream our Sunday Services via our YouTube Channel – please join our online congregation from 11 am if you are not able to come to church and worship with us online.

If there is something that you think your local church could be doing to offer services and/or support to our local community please get in touch via the Minister, Session Clerk, Facebook or website – Our church email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
SPONSORED PARISH WALK AND RUN – Our organist is organizing a sponsored event on Sunday 20th August straight after the morning service. A four-mile route through the parish of Bellshill: Central has been chosen and you can walk or run the route. Sponsor forms are available from the church, from Alan Mathew or get in touch online or by email. Teas/coffees will be served in the hall after the morning service for those not taking part but who wish to welcome back our intrepid explorers! This is an excellent way to keep fit and to let people know we are folks of Bellshill Central Parish Church.
SUMMER FUNDRAISER – Church members are taking part in the £2 summer fund raiser scheme again, making £2 grow for the church. Look out for various things taking place – such as coffee mornings, car washes, sponsored runs etc. AS well as being a good source of funds for our ongoing work these ideas always end up being great social and fellowship events to which all are welcome. Again, watch out on Facebook, our website and verbal notices on Sunday mornings.
Our weekly organisations are looking forward to resuming the fun, activities and friendship in August and the new sessions. Please check out our facebook, our website and verbal notices on Sunday mornings for details of any extra activities during the summer.
