EASTER IS NEARLY HERE! WE ARE GEARING UP FOR A BUSY EASTER SUNDAY WHICH STARTS AT 9.00AM AND THEN 11.00AM WITHIN THE CHURCH AT 346 MAIN STREET. WE INVITE YOU TO #COMEASYOUARE TO WORSHIP AND EXPERIENCE THE WARMTH AND LOVE OF A CHRISTIAN FAMILY ON A JOURNEY OF FAITH TOGETHER. OUR MOTTO IS CENTRAL TO CHRIST, CENTRAL TO BELLSHILL AND CENTRAL TO YOU!
Our 9.00am service is outdoors in the church grounds (weather permitting) when we think of that first Easter Garden, and what that means and how we can use the image of new resurrected life in our own daily lives. This is a wonderfully refreshing service, which is both calm and peaceful. It includes bible passages, some hymns and a reflection on that Easter Morning Garden and the creation of an Easter Flower Cross. Please bring with you some flowers to decorate it. After this service we have breakfast in the hall.
Our 11.00am service includes All Age worship, with Drama, Songs and Communion. Our songs and hymns are both New and Old – including Come people of the risen King, Jesus Christ is Risen today, This is the day, As we are Gathered and You Shall go out with joy. Our bible readers come from all corners of our congregation – Helen, Joan, Sarah, Michael, Lawson and Cheryl. We look forward to Adults and Children taking us through in Drama and Song the Holy Week and Easter story. On the Multi-media duty is Peggy Walker.
