What's on

Church Ministries


An angel touched me, and he said to me,
"The journey, pilgrim, is too great for thee.
But rise and eat and drink;
Thy food is here,
The Bread of Life,
Thy cruse of Water clear,
Drawn from the brook that doth as yesterday
Flow by the way.

And thou shalt go in strength of that pure food,
Made thine by virtue of the sacred Rood,
Unto the Mount of God;
Where thy Lord's face
Shall shine on thee,
On thee in thy low place,
Down at His feet who was thy Strength and Stay
Trough all the way"

O, Cake of Bread, baken on coals of fire -
Sharp fires of pain;
O, water, turned to wine -
Thy word is true; this food is daily mine.
Then never, never can the journey be
Too great for me.

Amy Carmichael

All at once an angel touched him and said, "Get up and eat,"

1 Kings 19:5

Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who
lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.

Daniel 12:3



On a Mission

The expression on a mission is often used to describe a plan of action that is ongoing; it may be an individual or even a team. It can be a task or challenge that is to be achieved in a certain way with specific instructions to be followed. Each one will know of occasions that we have experienced such a test.

There have been missions this summer that are mentioned in this months update, some concluded others still in progress. They all remind us of the great commission to go into the world and proclaim the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. May we rejoice in what has been accomplished as well as the challenges still to be completed, acknowledging the greatness and goodness of God at all times. Andy Wilson


Camp Correspondent

Camp 2014 was enjoyed by all campers and leaders. This year a good number of children from the Sunday school and Fusion were able to attend the camp for the first time and all had a great time with the different activities. Alastair Young was the speaker, and with the help of Jeremy, was able present the gospel in a clear and entertaining way for the children to understand.

Camp Sunday is being held on the 31st of August with the hope that campers, parents, leaders and the church can look back at everything that happened at camp.

Pray for the Bethany activities recommencing in September

Summer Sunday school

Summer Sunday school this year was a programme organised by Mark, with the theme on the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow in July. This looked at some of the nations competing, learning some interesting facts about them. Not least of some missionaries who took the message of the gospel. The highlight being Amy Carmichael who went from Millisle, County Down to Dohnavur in South India in 1895, pouring out her life for the Lord Jesus, never returning, staying there for fifty-six years.

Mission Focus

Mission Focus looked at the work of Friends International, who reach out to students who come to Paisley and English is not their first language.

Kathleen Herd and her daughter Karen, who gives a day and half each to the work, are involved in the work at UWS , in the Paisley Campus. They are form friendships and offer hospitality with the aim of sharing something of their faith in the Lord Jesus. Please pray that God will bless the work that Kathleen and Karen are engaged in.

This month we will have a visit on Sunday 21st from Alan Park who will tell us something of the work of Brass Tacks. Alan and his wife Shelia are involved in this ministry that world wide brings practical support to missionaries and communities where they serve. Please come along and hear something of how they serve God in this way

And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
