As the Church of Scotland in Bellshill we extend a warm welcome to any of our activities. People have been coming to this building to worship God for over a hundred years. While our town has journeyed through many changes over those years, the constancy of the witness of the “Church at 346 Main Street” has remained uninterrupted. The mission of any Church is to reflect through its presence, its music, its fellowship and its beauty the greatness of God, and we seek to do that here in all that we share.
We hope that everyone who enters these doors will find an encouraging, friendly group of people. While we are far from perfect, we are regularly discovering truths that are changing us individually and enriching our lives as a church community. As we worship together, learn from the Bible, and pray for one another, we are strengthened in our commitment to Jesus Christ as well as to each other. If this is your first time here, we welcome you, and invite you to share the joy that we have found.
WEDNESDAY 11TH DECEMBER AT 7PM in BELLSHILL CENTRAL PARISH CHURCH WE HAVE OUR ANNUAL SING A SONG FOR CHRISTMAS.
This is a charity fund raising night for CHRIS’S HOUSE – a worthy local charity. We look forward to hearing and singing with the kids from Lawmuir and Mossend Primary Schools. The Church choir will sing some songs from our Christmas Musical.
We urge the whole community to come along on Wednesday night, to really get into that Christmas spirit, enjoy hearing children sing AWAY IN A MANGER, and having fun.
Entry is TOTALLY FREE, but a donation will be taken for CHRIS’S HOUSE if you can contribute. Refreshments in the hall afterwards. Remember your Christmas Jumpers!
The church is filled with flickering candles. We sing traditional Christmas Carols interspersed with readings, read by four of our young members – Emily, Michael, Lyle and Amirah. Afterwards you are invited into the Church Hall for Mince Pies and Mulled Wine.
Lord Jesus, from the repetitive muzak carols heard in every shop and supermarket to the frantic shopping for glitzy gifts, may we, your disciples, be ready to grasp every opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas with others. Amen
