Weekly Church News

Sunday’s service on 18th October at Bellshill Central is at 11am led by Rev Kevin de Beer. Readings are Isaiah 43:1-7 and 1 Corinthians 15:12-22. Kevin’s theme is ‘A witness to hope’. Hymns are Great God your love has called us here, Jubilate, God sent his son, Do not be afraid and In Christ alone. If you want a Church that is Central to Christ, Central to you and Central to Bellshill then look no further. We would be delighted to welcome you. Let us build a house where all can dwell – All are welcome in this place!


The final total from our August Sponsored Walk and Run is a massive £850 with Gift Aid to be added. The harvest lunch last week was well attended and managed to raise £260 for church funds. Thanks to those members of our church who contributed to, and helped decorate, our harvest display at the front of the church. It was bigger and more creative than last year. It proved inspirational for Kevin’s children’s talk – looking for the mice hidden throughout the display – it got a few laughs from the Adults too!
