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.

POPE FRANCIS’ ENCYCLICAL ‘LAUDATO SI’  I have taken the risk of ordering twenty copies of the Pope’s new encyclical letter on the environment in the expectation that enough of you will be willing to buy a copy. The encyclical, as you know, has been welcomed by scientists and campaigners throughout the world, proving that, despite voices to the contrary, the Church still has an important role to play in the world. The content of this document is entirely consistent with everything Pope Francis has said and done up to now and calls the whole world to recognize that our current way of living is unsustainable in the long term and must change if we are not condemn the poor to greater and greater poverty and avoid  destroying the very planet we live. I hope we can look at the encyclical together as time goes on, but in the meantime please consider buying a copy and reading it for yourself.
