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.

Welfare for Parishes



I am very grateful to all those who made it possible for me to go away on holiday over the last few weeks confident that things here in the parish would go smoothly. In particular, I would like to thank Fr Bill Russell, Tom Paterson and Paul McNulty for looking after the church and the liturgy. Many others made a valuable contribution and I thank them too. Personally I had a great holiday As most of you know, I love Spain and everything Spanish and it is a country which I never cease to enjoy. Above all, I constantly thank God for his goodness. The three sisters who stayed in the house for two weeks while I was away were most impressed by the kindness so many of you showed them.
