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.

REFORMATION COURSE  The course began on Wednesday with an enormous attendance of seventy or eighty people from a wide spectrum of the local community. I have had a good deal of feedback which tells me two basic things. People enjoyed it, but some struggled to understand aspects of it which presumed previous knowledge of the topic. I would encourage you, however, not to give up. The first talk was always going to be the most difficult given the scope of the subject and the wide-ranging issues involved. The rest of the sessions will be easier because they are focused on much more specific themes. So don’t worry if you struggled a bit. The next meeting is on Wednesday 2nd march when our topic will be Martin Luther.
