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 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 November 28th Ephesians 3: 14-21
 Tuesday December 12th Ephesians 4: 1-10
 Tuesday January 9th  Ephesians 4: 11-16
 Tuesday January 23rd Ephesians 4: 17-24

Christmas ConcertChristmas Concert - Tuesday December 12th at 7:30pm

Cathures Chamber Choir will be giving a concert of Carols and Seasonal Music in the Church on Tuesday 12th December at 7.30 p.m., the net proceeds from which will go to the Glasgow City Mission.

The programme will include Carols for both choir and audience as well as choral items including the wonderful setting of “O Magnum Mysterium” by Morten Lauridsen, often heard on Classic FM.

Cathures Chamber Choir is based in the West end of Glasgow and has been in existence for more than ten years now. Membership at the moment is drawn from a wide area including Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, Lanarkshire and Ayrshire.

Entry to the concert will be by donation at the door, and we hope for a large attendance in support of this worth-while cause.

Coffee ConcertCoffee concert Saturday January 20th 11:30am

The first in our coffee concerts in the New Year, on Saturday, 20 January, will be given by Alasdair Young, who is very well known in Bearsden Cross Church.

He has given several memorable piano recitals in recent years, which have been hugely enjoyed by our audiences.

His programme will include works by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven from the centre of the classical repertoire. As usual the recital will take place in the church at 11.30 am preceded by fresh coffee and home baking in the small hall available from 10.45 am. Tickets, priced £10, will be available at the door – cash payments only please. This will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the season.

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.
