Things happening in the week from Central Church:

  1. Monday evening prayer group resumes via Zoom on Monday 25th July. Remember you can get in touch with Kevin anytime if you need prayer.
  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.

The final joint summer service in July,  with Bellshill Central and West Churches, is next weel at 11am. We look forward to worshipping together.

Invitation to worship

Worship is for everyone who longs for God – believers and seekers. Worship is about honouring and praising our Lord and Saviour. It is a time when we gather together to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit, and express our joy and gratitude. The power of God’s word touches those who are hurting and awakens hope for the hopeless. Whether you prefer traditional or contemporary worship, we invite you to celebrate the good news in Jesus Christ!

Sunday morning worship every week at 11am. You’re always welcome.

You will find a warm and friendly welcome here at Bellshill Central Parish Church of Scotland. We invite you to join us in a celebration of worship, christian fellowship, study and service. When you become a part of our exciting journey of faith, you will be encouraged, challenged and rewarded with renewed spirituality.
