It is no longer mandatory to wear face coverings in places of worship. In view of the continuing high prevalence of Covid, we ask those who use our building to remain considerate of others, to keep wearing masks if they feel vulnerable, and to wash hands frequently and use our hand sanitiser when entering or leaving.

Welcome to our website!
Our church meets every Sunday at 11.00 for worship. Services are relaxed, and follow a traditional Presbyterian format. We are an inclusive church, believing that the Bible teaches us not to discriminate on grounds of race, class, ability, or gender identity. We are part of the Church of Scotland. The "Kirk", as it is often referred to, is a broad church, comprising people from all theological backgrounds, and we find our unity in Jesus Christ and not in narrow confessional definitions. We rejoice in the diversity that enriches our fellowship. We recognise that our faith comes alive when we are able to offer practical support to our community, in acts of service and outreach.
We are working for our first Eco-Congregation award.

A Prayer for Today
We thank you that we can meet in our church again and that the worst of the pandemic seems to be behind us. Help us to continue to be considerate of the safety of others when we meet to worship you.
The Church of Scotland is now involved in a radical restructuring process. Our congregations are smaller and soon we shall have fewer ministers. We are therefore making plans with our neighbouring churches to work more closely together. We pray that we seize this opportunity to plan not just for lower numbers, but for more effective mission in ways that carry the Gospel message meaningfully to the people in our communities today.
We pray for our Glasgow NW Cluster Group as we make our plans together: Jordanhill, Broomhill Hyndland, St. John's Renfield, St Columba Gaelic and Blawarthill congregations. We pray especially that with your guidance we can agree on a forward-looking and effective Mission Plan.
We pray for our members and adherents, some of whom find the prospect of change difficult and bewildering.
We know you will never allow your Church to die, because you promised that you would stay with us to the end of time. Help us, Lord Jesus, to see you working in new and exciting ways, and give us the courage and imagination to be faithful in what you call us to be, and to do, in support of your continuing work in our world.
Trusting ever in our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ, we offer this prayer in His name. Amen.
