We are a congregation of folks of all ages. We live our faith by our actions. You’ll see that we are a warm and welcoming church, and you’ll find information about our activities and some of the services we offer via our website. However, as the Church community for Central Bellshill we want to know what do you want from us? What other services or activities can we help host, organise or promote? Do you want more activities during the day, in the evening, or at the weekend? Should it be geared towards young folk, older folk or families? You tell us how we can be Central to YOU!
