Worship at Bellshill Central during the month of May includes topics – Chosen and choosing to give ourselves, and Joy and Hope. We also focus on Christian Aid week, Pentecost with informal communion and a celebration of the Holy Trinity (Ftaher, Son and Holy Spirit). The first Sunday of May (Sunday 6th May) is also our monthly tea and coffee in the hall after the service, so please do stay behind that particular Sunday.
PENTECOST SUNDAY – We celebrate Pentecost (the church’s birthday) on Sunday 20th May with our Annual WEAR RED TO CHURCH event with the sacrament of Holy Communion, served in an informal and family service. Be Bright, Be Bold and be Passionate as we celebrate in colour and in song the coming of the Holy Spirit!
PRAYER & COMMUNITY – Please visit our new Prayer page on our website (look for the prayer button at the top) – there is an online prayer request form which will send your prayer direct to our minister, Rev Kevin. Prayer Requests – Our church has provided a Prayer Book which is situated in the main vestibule for anyone to pop in a note of concern or anxiety they would like prayer for. We are a Parish Church and are here for you in times of joy and sadness. Kevin is available to the local community to offer spiritual support or to simply offer prayer. 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
ONLINE MINISTRY – April is the month where we continue to consider the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Remember you can always subscribe to our minister’s YouTube channel if you are wanting to be reminded of new videos that are being uploaded. This is the final month of #wordonwednesday as Kevin prepares for a new ministry from the 23’rd May 2018 #21words. The current video on the Holy Spirit is the fourth video in a sequence of ten videos celebrating the gift of knowing our faith, living our faith, and sharing our faith. #FirstSteps – Kevin launched his “First Steps” book last year. Please look this up on Amazon, or contact Kevin for a copy as we hope to spread the Gospel message that little bit further in Bellshill and Mossend.
