We gather together at 11am on Sundays

You are really welcome to join us, whether you’re exploring faith, want to visit or you’re looking for a church to call home.

Whether you’ve been 100 times before or this is your first time, we’d love to help you find your feet and introduce you to some of the church community.

 

Getting ready

We recognise some people may be more cautious with their approach to restrictions easing, so we want to ensure that our gatherings are a place where everyone can engage at a comfortable level:

 

Lateral Flow – We’re encouraging everyone to do a lateral flow test before attending an in-person gathering.

Isolate – If you’re experiencing COVID symptoms or self-isolating please do not come along to an in-person gathering.

Give yourself space – You can choose to have a bit more space around you when you arrive on a Sunday – our welcome team will make sure you’re comfortable.

Face Coverings – Everyone aged 12 and over must wear at face covering at all times, unless your eating or drinking. We’ll have spares available in case you forget yours!

Hand sanitise – Everyone must use hand sanitiser when they arrive in the building.

 

If you need any support or have any questions please ask any of our team or email us to find out more!

If you are at-risk, unwell or need to isolate, please continue to join our live stream at 11AM.

What happens during a Sunday Gathering?

When you come in you will be welcomed and offered a tea or coffee, before finding a seat. Our gatherings are then introduced from the front, and we usually start with a time of celebration and sung worship. All the words are on the screen so you can sing along if you would like to.

Then there is a talk shared from the Bible and a chance to be prayed with at the end if you would like. There is no pressure to do that and you should feel free to engage as much or as little as you would like, even if that means not singing at all and just coming in to watch.

Towards the end of the gathering, we share coffee together – a great chance to meet new people and get to know one another more! Currently, we’re using our outside space for this.

We also regularly share communion together as part of our gatherings.

What about kids?

We welcome all ages, and start our gathering with everyone together before children are invited to go to their children’s groups. Each group provides a safe and fun environment in which to learn about God through storytelling, crafts and games. If your child would rather stay in the larger gathering, that’s fine too – we don’t mind a bit of noise! There are kids & youth groups for 0-18 year olds, and all our team go through an application process and a full Disclosure Scotland check. Please complete a consent form for your child(ren), if you’ve not done so before.

NB – for now, our Creche (0-5) is parent led. There’s a live stream feed so you can listen to the talk, and we’re working hard on building up our creche team again! 

How do I get there?

Our church building is on the corner of Bath Street and Pitt Street. The main entrance is on Pitt Street, but if you can’t manage stairs you are welcome to use the entrance on Bath Street.

We encourage you to come by foot, bicycle or public transport. The nearest train station is Charing Cross, but we are also a short walk from Glasgow Central and Queen Street stations. There are lots of buses which come past the door.

Car parking is available on street but is expensive. Cheaper rates are at the nearest multi-storey car parks at Charing Cross (Elmbank Crescent) and Cambridge Street.
