CRANHILL PARISH CHURCH

 

What's On

line
 

We follow the seasons of the Christian calendar, and try to keep the worship space changing to reflect and enhance our worship. We have special services at Christmas and Easter, often sharing with St Maria Goretti Church.

 

Occasional reflective services

We occasionally meet on a Sunday evening for a quiet service or healing service, as advertised.

Nearly New Sale

Most Mondays there is a great selection of quality second hand clothes, household linens and bric-a-brac on sale 9am – 12 noon. You’ll get a warm welcome and a cup of tea too!

Cranhill Crazy Church

Cranhill Crazy Church is our version of Messy Church http://www.messychurch.org.uk/ . Parents, carers and primary age children come together once a month on a Monday 3.30 -5.30pm to explore faith, get creative, let off steam and gather round a meal. Jesus never set up a building or an organisation. All he said to his friends was ‘Love one another!’ and ‘Eat together!’ So at Crazy Church all ages come together, learn to be kind and share, include everybody and learn the Jesus Way.

Home Group

Home groups throughout the year enable us to deepen friendships and explore faith together …and there’s often cake! Faith and doubt belong together, and questions are always in order.

Eco-congregation

We are proud to say we were the first Priority Area church to achieve eco-congregation status, working in partnership with Cranhill Development Trust. As part of our commitment to justice, peace and the care of creation we want to keep building on this.

Community meals

We are glad to have a ‘ministry of food’, sharing meals together regularly. A new venture in Autumn 2016, in partnership with Cranhill Development Trust, is a monthly meal cooked by volunteers and shared, with conversation, around tables with friends old and new.

Community involvement

We offer a short service of worship at Burlington Court Nursing Home on the first Sunday of every month. The minister is chaplain at Cranhill Primary School and part of the team at Smithycroft Secondary School.

g.r.A.c.c.e Grouping

Since January 2014 the three congregations of Garthamlock and Craigend East, Ruchazie and Cranhill have been working together to form a parish grouping, looking for new ways to reach and serve their communities. We share worship regularly throughout the year and hope to build on our growing sense of connection. The staff team from the three churches meet regularly and support one another.

 

I'M LOOKING FOR

line
 
Someone To Talk To
+

The minister, Muriel, can be contacted through the office at Cranhill Development Trust or by calling the manse 0141 770 6873.

Baptism
+

The minister, Muriel, is glad to speak to any family about sharing a service of baptism or blessing as part of Sunday worship at 11am. We take our commitment to families who profess faith and seek baptism for their children seriously, and try to keep in touch.

Weddings
+

If you are planning to get married, the minister would be glad to help either with a service held in the church or in another venue. Don’t let cost put you off. There is a small charge for use of the building, but there is no charge for the minister’s preparation and service. All you need is the marriage license, which currently costs £70.

Funerals and Bereavement Care
+

It is a privilege to be able to offer support and comfort during a time of bereavement. The minister or a colleague will meet with the family and plan a suitable funeral service which may be conducted in the church or at the crematorium or graveside. There is a small charge for use of the church building, but there is no charge for the minister’s preparation and service.

If a death is expected, the minister is glad to visit and pray at home or in hospital, and if appropriate plan the service with the person who is at the end of life, and with the family.

The minister will follow up after the funeral and support the family in any way she can. We hold a memorial service annually on the first Sunday in Advent, recognising that Christmas is hard when a loved one is gone.

Prayer Space
+

If there is someone or something you particularly want prayer for, let us know. If you want to talk add your phone number to the request.
