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.

 ADULT EDUCATION IN FAITH  The fourth of our six talks on The Reformation takes place on Wednesday at 7.30.p.m. when Bishop Nolan will speak about the Reformation in Scotland, an important historical event which was very different from other parts of Europe and came much later. The fifth talk will be just three weeks after that, on May 25th, when I myself will speak about the Council of Trent, the Church’s belated response to Martin Luther. This is often referred to as the Counter Reformation. I have been preparing the talk recently, and if those who come to hear it find it half as interesting as I do preparing it, then I will be quite happy.
