Online Worship Services
Welcome to our Online Worship Services. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak leading to us to be unable to gather in person for church as we usually would we have dedicated this space to bring the weekly service into your homes.
Please come here each Sunday to see the next service as it is uploaded, and services will remain available following this time so feel free to 'catch up' or re-watch a service through the week as desired.

As we have watched in horror the riots that have taken place, for a variety of reasons, both in America and here in our own country, it is clear to see that our cultures have a real difficulty in loving our neighbours.
Reasoned debate and an ability to accept that we may have differences in opinions would seem to be a thing of the past. There is so much anger, graffiti, looting and violence on the streets. So much hate speech in social media that we at times can be forgiven for asking “where is God?” in all of this.
How refreshing and delightful it was to read that on the very road where George Floyd was murdered, Christians have been going out onto the streets and telling the people of God’s love for them.
Not afraid of being shouted down or laughed at they have been “roaring the Gospel”
and many people are responding. Knowing that there is a gap in their lives they are submitting to Jesus, inviting Him into their lives and indeed baptisms have been taking place on the streets.
Roaring the Gospel is not about shouting. Lions roar to warn off intruders and to mark their territory. These Christians want to stop evil and hatred in that neighbourhood and to claim it back for Jesus.
God is moving, He is in the midst of every difficult situation and His Word promises that He will never leave us or forsake us. As we remain in lockdown, let us roar in prayer, claiming our Parish, our City, our Country for Jesus and asking Him for opportunities to share our Faith and roar the Gospel with our families, neighbours and those whom we encounter in the next days and weeks.
Talking of neighbours, on Thursday evening Glasgow Presbytery live streamed the induction of the Rev Jim Gemmell to one of our neighbouring Churches, Carnwardic Parish Church. Carnwadric has been in vacancy for nearly three years and so we rejoice with them that they now have their own minister and we look forward to meeting Jim Gemmell in the future and pray that God will bless him in his ministry there.
This Thursday, there will be a live streaming event for the induction of the new Moderator of Glasgow Presbytery, Rev William Wilson.
Again, we want to mark the times of celebration in the lives of our church family members.
Congratulations to William Boyd who celebrated his 7th birthday on Thursday, 11th June; to Mary-Ann Burnett who celebrated her 27th birthday on Saturday, 13th June; and to Margaret Gillespie who celebrates her birthday today, Sunday, 14th June.
Many Happy Returns to you all!
As ever, please remember that the ministry team are available for a chat, always in the strictest confidence. You may be feeling lonely but know that you are not alone. Simply being able to listen, comfort and pray with you if desired would be a privilege.
