Church News & Events


7.30 p.m. Monday 23 March 2015 

New Hall, Mearns Kirk

This is a one-evening presentation that reviews the rational and historical evidence for Jesus being the Son of God.  This outreach tool has been developed by Cathcart Trinity -

The language and approach of the presentation has been designed primarily for atheists or agnostics.  However, we also know that Christians find the information presented to be of value too.  Christians have said that a Jesus: the Evidence evening has helped to strengthen their own faith and helped them share their faith with others.  We also know that attending a Jesus: the Evidence evening has been an important step for a number of non-Christians in their journey to faith.

Please come along and bring some non-church friends.  It could be a means of strengthening your faith and bringing others to Christ.

Are you aware?

Take an hour on the 28th March at 8.30pm to turn your lights off in the effort to raise awareness of climate change.

If you wish more information you can contact David Patton, our new environment representative for Mearns Kirk church, by email on

Café Church

On Sunday 12th April the 11 a.m. service will be a bit different. We will meet in the Hall and sit together at tables, sharing tea and coffee, singing, praying and talking together. The purpose for the change is to offer an opportunity for all to discuss the Easter story. In a more intimate gathering we will be able to ask questions, look at what Easter means, and think about how we might take the Easter story on into our lives.

There is also another aim of having such a service. With one eye to the future, and seeking to create worship for whom traditional church doesn’t “do much”, we have to look at other ways of being church. We cannot just do what’s “aye been” or we will shut up shop in 5-10 years!

The 9.30 a.m. service that day will be the usual traditional service but we need to offer something more, something different, in order to create new possibilities for God to touch peoples’ lives.

Please be supportive, if not by your presence, at least in prayer.
