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.
