Central Chat – News Catch up!

Bellshill Central Parish Church at 346 Main Street continues to be physically closed to all in person face to face meetings, including Sunday morning worship 

However, we are continuing to be the church locally in the community of Bellshill and Mossend by being active online, with Kevin’s continuing pastoral work and being a family of faith. Our groups and church members are in daily contact with each other. 

How are we doing this?

  • Our website at www.bellshillcentral.church is continually updated and refreshed.  Have a look. Services and other outreach online is available here. 
  • WhatsApp groups for our church family and most vulnerable folks. Our church chat of 50+members keep upto date, sharing important news, moments of humour and prayers. There are also separate WhatsApp groups for our choir and guild. 
  • Online worship is our main focus, with sunday worship online at 10.45am and midweek Young church on Wednesday at 12noon. These have growing “viewer” numbers each week reaching out beyond our building in ways we’d never have imagined. www.bellshillcentral.church/watch-live
  • This Sunday our main bible reading is Psalm 95, calling us to worship, praise and sing of a wonderful love.  Our children’s talk looks at praying and recharging your spiritual batteries! 
  • Organist Entertains provided by our own organist and maestro,  Alan Mathew.  Now ready for the 47th instalment which is available tonight (Wednesday) at 8pm. Tonight’s episode has dual cameras so you can see the maestros hands and feet! To date we have surpassed 24,000 views! www.bellshillcentral.church/organist-entertains 
  • Tune in to hear about our GOLDEN EPISODE and how you can take part. 

Looking forward our existing activities will continue online and we hope that you can join us when you can.  That’s the wonder of online church, you can worship where and when you are able.
