Bible Basics, Paul's Letter to the Ephesians
Bible Basics
Over the coming months we will look at Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians in our series of ‘Bible Basics’.

As with last year’s series of reflections, we are using video materials produced by Professor Tom Wright aimed at everyone! ‘Bible Basics’ is intended to be a fairly gentle and non-threatening entry into Bible Study and is aimed at those curious to find out some of the basic stories and themes of the Bible.

‘Bible Basics’ will take place mostly on Tuesday mornings (please note change of day!) at 10.30am in the Guild Room and will last around 60 – 90 minutes. All of the relevant materials will be provided. Meeting are planned on the following dates:-

 Tuesday September 26th Ephesians 1: 15-23
 Wednesday October 11th Ephesians 2: 1-10
 Tuesday October 31st Ephesians 2: 11-22
 Tuesday November 14th Ephesians 3: 1-13
 Tuesday November 28th Ephesians 3: 14-21
 Tuesday December 12th Ephesians 4: 1-10

Prayer Tree

'Pray for ...' or 'Thank you for ...'

Prayer Tree for Ukraine: Worshipers have written prayers and messages on blue and yellow cards and these were arranged in the pattern of the Ukrainian flag.

Please feel free to add your own prayers the next time you are in Church. You can also now send an email to with heading 'Pray for ...' or 'Thank you for ...'. These are only viewable by the Minister who will then see that these are hung on our Prayer Tree.

Worship on Sundays

We try to offer a recording of the Church service
via Facebook. We aim to upload the morning service in the afternoon. Hopefully the recording will be available online around 2:00 - 2:30 pm on the Sunday afternoon.


The services are on our Facebook page. We aim to upload a recording of the 10:30 am service by early Sunday afternoon. All services are also available thereafter for you to catch up later. Whilst Facebook will encourage you to 'sign up', this is not necessary to view the services. Look for the Videos tab where all of these are available.
If you know of anyone who does not have Internet access then please let them know that we also offer recordings of the services on DVD or on a USB memory stick, please contact the Minister on 0141 942 0507 or by email at or the Church Secretary at
If anyone you know is unable to access the Internet, and does not have the equipment to play a DVD or a USB stick, then why not suggest that they try our phone service? You can dial in at a local rate number to hear a recording of the sermon each week. Simply dial 0141 483 7770 and the sermon will play automatically.

For More on the services together with other events see below, also viewable as a calendar or check out the current issue of our parish magazine.
