Central Church weekly news!

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 147 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, 12th January 2020, join us at 11.00am at the church at 346 Main Street right at the Centre of our town.  Our minister, Rev Kevin de Beer starts a 7 week series – Telling it Slant (the first in a 7 week series “With Jesus in Samaria”.  The readings are Genesis 11:1-9 and Luke 9:51-62. Our hymns include: Come all who look to God, Our God is a God who makes friends, Take time to be Holy and Amen we praise your name O God.

Our Young Church meets in the Church and takes part in our opening 20 minutes of the service. After the All Age talk and offerings the young folks leave for the Hall for their own activities.  Any youngster from P1 through to S6 plus are welcome to come along.   Bellshill Central Young Church gives the best start!!  A crèche is also available for the youngest ones.

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.

HEART AND SOLE are hoping to meet for the first time in 2020 this Sunday, 12th January, after the service.  If you are interested we will leave at around 12.15pm.  Potentially heading to Strathclyde Park and stopping for a bite to eat also.   Remember to dress appropriately and wear appropriate foot wear.  The walk is of course weather dependant!
