Sunday worship takes place at Bellshill Central Parish Church at 346 Main Street, on Sunday 4th June at 10.45am, when our Minister Rev’d Kevin de Beer will conduct worship and our Young Church and children’s activities will be available. This is our June Communion Service. Our hymns include This is the Day, I am the bread of life, Our eyes have seen the glory and Spirit divine attend our prayers. The bible lessons come from Deuteronomy 18:14-22 and Luke 24:13-35. There will be a retiring offering after the morning service in aid of ERSKINE Hospital. Visitors are always welcome to come along.
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! Tea and coffee are served in the Hall afterwards as it’s the first Sunday of the Month, so stay behind for chat and fellowship. This particular Sunday we encourage folks to wear red. This signifies a) the work of the Holy Spirit and b) to remind us of the fire of the Spirit. In addition, the congregation with many dressed in RED is colorful. And perhaps most of all, it is fun. Also, this being the 1st Sunday of the Month we will hold tea and coffee in the hall after the service.
Some of our services are Live Streamed on some Sundays but all services are available on Catch up to view at your leisure on our church website and YouTube channel.
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.
