New Year from Bellshill Central Church

Sunday worship continues at 11am each Sunday morning at 346 Main Street – Bellshill Central Parish Church. Our church is Central to Christ, Central to Bellshill and Central to YOU! For 143 years we have shouted out the Good News of Jesus Christ and of His love for one and all. We offer a warm and generous welcome to all, on Sundays or throughout the week at any of our week day activities and groups. Our minister, Rev’d Kevin de Beer, loves being in our Faith Family and reaching outwards into the communities of Bellshill Town Centre, Mossend and Orbiston. As the Church of Scotland Parish for Central Bellshill, including the Town Centre, we want to you be part of what is a wonderful community of fellowship and faith. Please simply #comeasyouare!

This Sunday morning, 5th January 2020, join us at 11.00am at the church at 346 Main Street right at the Centre of our town.  This is the first Sunday of the new year and we literally give thanks for another new year and what it will bring. The theme is “God has invaded the world and caused a ‘new world’ to come into being”.  The readings are Jeremiah 31:7-14, John 1:1-18. Our hymns include Hills of the North, Amazing Grace, Of the Father’s love begotten, Glory be to God the Father. This Sunday stay behind for tea and coffee in the hall after the service. 

The service will be live streamed via our website and YouTube channel for those wishing to take part live or later on catch up. If you would like a tape, CD or DVD of the service these can be made available by speaking to Drew Aitken.

We need to thank everyone who contributed to the Christmas offerings for Chris’s House. We will be able to send over £800 to them for their vital work and help in our local community. Visit for more information. The offerings were gathered at our Sing a song for Christmas and the Christmas Eve service.
