    Drama Kirk - One Good Friday Posted on 12 Mar 2020

    Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the necessary movement restrictions it is inevitable that the live outdoor performance of One Good Friday on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 April 2020 have had to be cancelled.

    However, fortuitously, a recording was made of the performance prior to social distancing and this will be live streamed via YouTube at the planned performance times:

    Good Friday - 10 April 2020 - 3.15pm

    Saturday - 11 April 2020 - 2.30pm

    CHARITY CONCERT Posted on 02 Mar 2020

    The Lanarkshire District Fellowship of the Boys’ Brigade staged a charity concert in Motherwell on Saturday evening in support of two local charities – Hope for Autism, North Lanarkshire, and YAMS (You Are My Sunshine). Assisted by voluntary performances from The Jolly B’s (Stonehouse), the renowned concert Organist Mark Hindley, as well as the Lanarkshire District Fellowship Pipes and Drums and the Wishaw and District Brigade Band, the Forward in Fellowship Concert was well received by a large and enthusiastic audience.

    The adjacent photograph shows the presentation of cheques to the value of £1350 to each of the two charities, with the promise of more to come. Well done LDF and the Boys’ Brigade in general, for displaying Faith in Action. The work of the kingdom was certainly advanced, with a focus beyond just “Boys.”

    INDUCTION AT MOTHERWELL Posted on 27 Feb 2020  |  Full Presbytery

    The Rev. Dr Alistair S May was on Tuesday evening, 25 February 2020, Inducted to the Pastoral Charge of Dalziel St. Andrew’s Parish Church in Motherwell, the first induction in almost two years. There was a good turn-out of members of the Presbytery to welcome Dr May, as well as a number of visitors from the Presbyteries of Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Irvine and Kilmarnock, who “associated” with the Presbytery on this happy occasion.

    The occasion was presided over by the Rev. Maxine Buck, Auxiliary Minister, Moderator of the Presbytery, and the Rev. Dr Peter H Donald, minister at Airdrie: Cairnlea, conducted worship and preached a fine sermon based on Matthew 3:17-4:1 - the Baptism of Jesus - and our common baptismal calling as disciples of Jesus.

    The congregation of Motherwell: Dalziel St Andrew’s also turned out in good strength on what was, given the recent weather, a ‘tolerable’ night, and the whole company was in fine voice in giving praise to the Lord. The adjacent photograph shows Dr May receiving the communion vessels from members of the Boys’ Brigade company attached to the congregation.

    The Church of Scotland Presbytery of Hamilton is a charity registered in Scotland No: SC048680.
