Bellshill Central Parish Church at 346 Main Street is now open for in person worship! It’s been 18 months, 540 days, or 1 year 5 months 22 days, or 77 Sundays and we have missed seeing you all in person.
Our in person services on Sunday Mornings begin at 11am ( just as they did pre-Covid). Our doors open around 10.30am and we do not need any pre-booking beforehand. However, we ask that you call our Session Clerk to advise of your attendance so we can prepare the Trace and Protect sheets, as we need to keep a record of those in attendance, and by calling Stanley it will speed things up at the front door. Stanley’s number is 01698 747144.
This week please email Jane on firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday worship will be live streamed and recorded, so that those who are not able, or don’t feel comfortable yet with in person worship, to take part in the service virtually. Just go to http://www.bellshillcentral.church/watch-live to take part. If the service isn’t available straight away it will be by Sunday afternoons.
As Sunday worship is the only in person activity in the buildings at present, so 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 http://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.

WALKING GROUP meets on Tuesday evenings. At present we meet at Anne Guy’s house, have a stroll locally, then return to Anne’s for refreshments. We need to take details for Test & Protect, so it would be good to know if your coming beforehand. Let us know via email@example.com
We continue in our online prayer group. Just half an hour once per week. At this time in our world when things seem to be out of control time talking to God in prayer is even more important!
