A tour of the stained glass windows of Bellshill Central Parish Church

The church at 346 Main Street is temporarily not open for public worship, general visiting or private prayer during the Coronavirus (CODVID-19) pandemic. Meanwhile, the community of Bellshill Central Parish – the clergy, the members & adherents and wider community – will sustain the worship, albeit privately, of a building that has been a witness to God’s grace and glory in this area for over a 150 years.

Our church is blessed with wonderfully rich, vibrant and inspiring collection of fine stained glass windows. We see them each week and perhaps take them for granted. In this time when our physical church building is closed we have put together a montage of our windows with the soothing sounds of John Rutter’s Clare Benedition.

The stories of the most colourful windows are all taken from the bible, and these stories, images and colours have inspired preaching for decades. The tallest of the windows, located behind the organ, is perhaps the simplest in design but holds the story of the early church here at 346 Main Street.

Have a look at our Church Tour page to look at each window in detail, and other items of interest around our Church. Our History page has more information about the church.

We look forward to welcoming you in person once we are able to re-open and welcome you to a worship service or one of the many other activities that take place at 346 Main Street.
