BCPC Weekly news round 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?

  • 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. 
  • Check out our Facebook page with a lovely heartfelt testimonial from. Grace about her journey of faith to Baptism 
  • These have growing “viewer” numbers each week reaching out beyond our building in ways we’d never have imagined. http://www.bellshillcentral.church/watch-live.
  • Organist Entertains provided by our own organist and maestro,  Alan Mathew.  The Golden Special Bumper Episode (50th) instalment 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 25,000 views! http://www.bellshillcentral.church/organist-entertains. We have special messages from right around the world. 

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.
