Word on Wednesday

WORD ON WEDNESDAY HOME PAGE CLICK HERE

The Rev Kevin de Beer

Our minister, Rev Kevin de Beer, has launched his own YouTube channel where his weekly “Word on Wednesday” short reflection videos are posted each Wednesday morning.

~ Exploring the Christian faith – knowing, living and sharing faith ~

Kevin believes that as the social media presence of the church grows it is a good platform to reach out to people. He said: “We are fortunate to have a team that worked hard on our Internet presence and I was asked to post 31 days of prayer last summer which was well received. “The gift of sharing prayers was repeated throughout Lent and this too was well received. “As the Facebook page of Bellshill Central has grown in its reach and influence, we have decided to launch ‘Word on Wednesdays’ – a three-minute biblical reflection, followed by a prayer.”

We have as a church also published ‘First Steps – Journeying in Faith, Hope and Love’ and has 50 copies to give to people in Bellshill who have questions concerning God and the Bible. The Rev de Beer said: “We believe that the church offers a community where people can gather to worship, to ask questions and give loving service.”

Celebrate Christmas here at Central Church

There’s so much going on at Central Church this Christmas Season and we’d love for you to join us in our celebrations.   Come along to one or all of our events and you’re assured a warm welcome.

You are the God who made this world,
You are the truth that all may find,
You are the touch which heals our wounds,
The source of life for humankind.

You are the hope that we proclaim,
You are the path we choose to tread,
And if we hunger on the way,
You are the food by which we’re fed.

You are the love that knows no end,
You are the perfect sacrifice,
For broken lives weighed down by sin,
You are the One who paid the price.

You are the joy that fills our heart,
You are the comfort in our pain,
And as we lay all else aside.
For all we lose you are our gain.

Weekly Church News

Here at Bellshill Central, you will find a warm welcome from committed Christian people who are serious about their faith journey but also enjoy having a good time. You will find passionate worship, which seeks to incorporate both the traditional and the new, and preaching that tries hard to make the Scripture message relevant to our daily living. If you want a Church that will honour your journey of faith and challenge you to go deeper into your relationship with Jesus Christ, then this is the place for you, and we are delighted to welcome you. Let no one feel a stranger in this place! 

The next Sunday  service  at Bellshill Central Parish Church is on Sunday 30th July led by Rev de Beer at 11am.  This will be the last of our summer joint services with St Andrew’s and West Churches.   This service also includes the sacrament of Communion, celebrated in an informal style.   The bible readings are taken from Deuteronomy 24:10-22 and Mathew 20: 1-16.   Our hymns include “Christ Triumphant, ever reigning”, “Tell me the stories of Jesus” and “I want to serve the purpose of God in my generation” A joint choir practice will take place at 10am within the Church hall for anyone taking part.   Activities for Children and Young Adults activities will be available during the service.  Tea and coffee are served after the service.   We  would be delighted to welcome you in the LORD’s name. If you are a visitor to our church, do make yourself known to one of the welcome team.  We are a warm and welcoming church at the heart of our town — Central Church is Central to Bellshill, Central to Christ and Central to YOU!

We are a Parish Church, and are here for you in times of joy and sadness.  Our minister, Rev Kevin de Beer, is available to the local community to offer spiritual support or to simply offer prayer.  Each week in our Sunday Service we offer prayers for those needing remembered.  If you would like to add names to our prayers, or require the services of your local Parish Church please get in touch – contact details are available on our website and our church notice board.    If there is something that you think your local church could be doing to offer services and/or support to our local community please get in touch via the Minister, Session Clerk, Facebook or website – Our church email address is bellshillcentral@gmail.com

SUMMER FUNDRAISER – Church members are taking part in the £2 summer fund raiser scheme again, making £2 grow for the church.  Look out for various things taking place – such as coffee mornings, car washes, sponsored runs etc.   AS well as being a good source of funds for our ongoing work these ideas always end up being great social and fellowship events to which all are welcome. Again, watch out on facebook, our website and verbal notices on Sunday mornings.

Our weekly organisations are looking forward to resuming the fun, activities and friendship in August and the new sessions.   Please check out our facebook, our website and verbal notices on Sunday mornings for details of any extra activities during the summer.   Church Choir resumes in a few weeks on Friday 18th August at 7.30pm in the Church.

SUMMER CHOIR meets each Sunday morning at 10am in the Church Hall during the rest of July and August for anyone interested in helping lead our praise each Sunday.   Depending on who is there we will look at a quick fun easy piece for use in that Sunday’s service.
