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 at 11am (Sunday 9th February) our minister continues his 7 week series of Jesus in Samaria – this week ‘HOSPITALITY’. Just come along and join us at 11.00am at the church at 346 Main Street right at the Centre of our town. Helping lead worship this week is Stan, Alan and of course Rev’d Kevin. The readings are Genesis 18:1-14 and Luke 14:1-14. Our hymns include: I the Lord of sea and sky, Jesus bids us shine, The wise man built his house, Let us build a house, and we finish with a South African song – Amen we praise your name O God.
