If you’re looking for a church that is Central to Christ, Central to you and Central to Bellshill – then look no further! Here you will find a church and a people with a real heart and soul for worship, who enjoy fellowship and socialising throughout the week. We’re on a journey together, come and join us.
Sunday 29’th July 2018 – We worship together with the folks from St Andrew’s and West Churches at St Andrew’s UF Church at the Cross. This is the final service for our shared worship in July and will include the Sacrament of Communion.
Normal services re-commence in Bellshill Central Parish Church on Sunday 5’th August at 11.00am when our theme for the week is Baptism, with readings from Genesis 8: 15-22 and Romans 6: 1-14. Hymns include Praise the Lord ye heaven’s adore him, Shine Jesus Shine, Saviour teach me day by day and This is the day. Summer choir meets on 5’th August at 10.00am in the Church Hall. Tea and Coffee is served in the Church Hall after this service.
Last Sunday we hosted the 4’th joint summer service and Rev de Beer spoke to us about the gift that is the Church, and the gifts that the Holy Spirit bestows on us. A large congregation was in attendance and the joint choir lead us in hymns and songs speaking about the Church and the Holy Spirit.
As a Church Family we wished Bobby Walker a very happy birthday and Tom and Margaret Mills a happy 59’th Wedding Anniversary.
