Bearsden Cross Church is presently closed for 'in-person' Worship on Sundays

Following the changes announced on January 4th there will be no 'in-person' provision for Worship on Sundays. These restrictions will be in place for January and are to be kept under review by the Scottish Government.

Summary of arrangements:
Online Sunday worship continues at 10.30am each Sunday and can be accessed through the church’s Facebook page.

We are following the advice from the Scottish Government and the Church of Scotland.

PLEASE NOTE: The Office remains closed to visitors at this time.

Online streaming
pnline video stream
We are continuing to stream a weekly act of worship online. 

The streamed services are on our Facebook page at 10:30am on a Sunday morning but 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.

Preaching the Parables

Over the coming weeks the Minister will continue to preach each week on the parables that Jesus told.


A parable can loosely be defined as “a story with a meaning” and we might also say that the stories that Jesus told were “earthly stories with heavenly meanings.”

The series began in late September and continues over the coming weeks.

It is hoped that you will find this series to be interesting and illuminating.

'Pray for ...' or 'Thank you for ...'
Prayer Tree: As mentioned by the Minister you can now send an email to with heading 'Pray for ...' or 'Thank you for ...'. The Minister will then see that  these are hung on our Prayer Tree.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)
In accordance with government advice and that issued by the Church of Scotland about physical distancing and the need to minimise social and religious gatherings Worship on Sundays has had to change.

Bible Class, Funday Sunday and the Saturday Night Club are cancelled, as are all other activities
based at the church or in our halls. Meanwhile there are virtual meetups for the young people on social platforms.

Scottish Government information is here. Follow its 'News' link for details of changes.
