Weekly Church News

Due to holidays there was no Motherwell Times & Bellshill Speaker news this week, so please see below this week’s church family news.

Sunday worship this weekend (Sunday 31st) is a joint service with Bellshill Central and Bellshill West Churches beginning at 11am at Bellshill West Church.

Live stream will be via Bellshill West Parish Church facebook page.

Rev Kevin leads the joint service, and hospitality is offered in the West church hall afterwards.

Things happening in the week from Central Church are:

  1. Monday evening prayer group has resumed via Zoom on Monday’s. Remember you can get in touch with Kevin anytime if you need prayer. If you want the zoom codes to join please email hello@bellshillcentral.church
  2. Tuesday our Walking Group “Heart and Sole” meets at the church for some time together walking and talking. Tea is available at the end. Bring comfortable walking footwear and a jacket in case of some rain! We meet at 7pm.
  3. If you are interested in learning some new worship songs please get in touch and we will arrange some singing sessions over the summer.  Singing is good for you! It releases all sorts of good feelings and endorphins.  It’s good for your breathing and a good way to meet new people. Contact organist@bellshillcentral.church if you’re interested.
  4. Grant and Sharon Malone along with Grant’s sister and a few others are doing the Ring of Steall on Saturday (today). It’s in memory for their mum and doing it for st Andrews hospice. This is a link to the just giving page Lynsey has done, and Sharon also has a sponsor form. If you can support them please use the link or contact Sharon for the sponsor form. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/SteallTeam
