Welcome to St Bride's Church, West Kilbride

St Bride's exists to be a community where men and women of faith gather to be fed by both the Word and the Eucharist so that they can go out into the world to be witnesses to the Resurrection and the presence of the Risen Jesus in the world and in history. This means doing everything we can to make the teachings of Jesus, as we read them in the four gospels, a living reality in society. Above all, this means reaching out to the poor in all their shapes and forms. But, for this to happen, we have to develop in ourselves a theology and a spirituality which enable us to move beyond the limitations of traditional religion and enter the much richer and more profound world of faith. This journey from religion to faith is at the heart of everything that happens in St Bride's.

The next meeting is on Wednesday 29th April when our topic will be “A Gospel-Based Economy”. The evening will be led by Danny Murray, an ex-chairman of the National Justice and Peace Commission, and Tim Duffy, the long-serving secretary of the same commission. And you may be interested to know that the whole of this course is going to be repeated in Stevenston towards the end of May and into the beginning of June. As well as that, I am going to Kircudbright in June to give the first talk on the life of Pope Francis to an ecumenical group, Sharing resources like this is good for us all.
